This first release from the 100% community-owned, Dingwall based distillery, is said to deliver light and floral notes with a hint of malty sweetness on the nose, followed by bursts of rich stone-fruit, brown sugar and ripe orchard fruit on the palate.

3,600 individually numbered bottles of the inaugural whisky have been allocated to GlenWyvis Distillery shareholders, whose investment enabled the build and development of the distillery.

A further 2,000 bottles were available to pre-order in October 2020 and sold out almost immediately. 200 bottles will also be available at selected local retailers and on-trade premises throughout Scotland. RRP (tbc).

Commenting on the launch, Matthew Farmer, Distillery Manager at GlenWyvis Distillery, said: “We are so excited to be launching GlenWyvis Distillery’s first whisky. Our journey over the past few years and the creation of GlenWyvis Distillery is thanks to our many shareholders so it is only fitting that they will be among the first to try our first whisky.”

He went onto say: “The 2018 distillation of 18 casks has produced a delicious whisky. Young whisky brings you so close to the grain - this is the first step, and it is pure GlenWyvis. This first step is part of a long journey for GlenWyvis Distillery, and I can’t wait to see where it takes us.”

GlenWyvis Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky, is the first whisky to be produced in Dingwall in almost 100 years, with the last whisky distillery, Ben Wyvis, closing its doors in 1926.
