In 2015, a significant milestone in the history of Scottish distilleries was achieved when GlenWyvis emerged as the very first distillery to be established as a Social Enterprise. This unique distinction departed from the traditional business model, as GlenWyvis was founded with a clear and noble purpose—to operate for the greater good of its community.
Nestled on a stunning ridge at the base of the majestic Ben Wyvis, GlenWyvis is not just a distillery; it’s a symbol of community-driven entrepreneurship and sustainability. From its idyllic location, it is a testament to the harmonious coexistence of nature, innovation, and social responsibility.
At the core of GlenWyvis’ operations is a profound commitment to environmental consciousness. To power its distillation process, the distillery harnesses the forces of nature. Hydroelectric power, derived from the abundant waters in the region, forms a cornerstone of their energy strategy. The glistening streams that flow from the rugged hills surrounding Ben Wyvis are not merely a scenic backdrop; they are a source of sustainable energy that drives the production of their exceptional spirits.
