GlenWyvis Distillery

GlenWyvis Distillery is the world’s first 100% community-owned distillery – raising over £2.5m in just 77 days! While we finish building it, we’ve set up GlenWyvis Basecamp in Dingwall. It’s your starting point to discover more about GlenWyvis Gin, our plans for GlenWyvis Whisky, and our local heritage tours. By investing in GlenWyvis, our 2,600 members are forging a new chapter in the area’s dramatic whisky history that already features Robert Burns, the Jacobites and illicit whisky stills. To be part of the story, visit GlenWyvis Basecamp in our interim home in Victoria Restaurant, where you’ll enjoy a tipple of GlenWyvis Gin and learn about our limited edition malt whisky, Highland Inspiration, released to mark the laying of our foundation stone. Opens Easter 2017.
