The Abhainn Dearg site says “It has been nearly one hundred and seventy years since the last legal bottle of whisky was produced in the Outer Hebrides.” Wow! I think they distilled their first spirit in 2009, and because it is so new, none of it can legally be called “whisky” yet. They are apparently selling some of this “new make,” briefly aged in sherry casks, as “The Spirit of Lewis,” but it is not available outside Europe or the U.K. yet.
