It was a very busy period for GlenWyvis on the lead up to Christmas. We attended the 'Exclusively Highlands' Christmas craft fair in Eden Court where we met and engaged with some enthusiastic whisky lovers who were genuinely interested in our goal of building Scotland's first community owned distillery.
We also introduced the brand new GlenWyvis cocktail! Designed by local barman Robert, The GlenWyvis is the perfect tonic for those cold dark nights; it has a refreshingly zesty character which complements our gin perfectly. Here is how you can make your own:
- 50ml GlenWyvis Gin
- 25ml Lemon Juice
- 10ml Benedictine Dom
- 10ml Orgeat Syrup
- 10ml Homemade Ginger Syrup
- 1 Tsp Orange Marmalade
Combine and shake all ingredients until chilled. Double strain over crushed ice. Garnish with Lemon wheel OR Orange twirl & Star Anise OR Cinnamon Stick (burned)
Along with our friends at R&I Cruden Renewable Heating Solutions we attended the Renewable Energy Open Day at Cronan Farm in Perthshire. The event was hosted by the Renewable Development Initiative and NFU Scotland and gave us the chance to see some of the new technologies at the forefront of the renewable energy sector. We are always on the lookout for new innovative ways to help in our mission in being Scotland's first whisky distillery entirely powered by renewable energy. GlenWyvis, powered by nature.
Earlier in the month we welcomed Dingwall Academy Engineering class to the GlenWyvis Project. Weather conditions proved to be perfect: wet, windy and sunny! All the GlenWyvis green energy systems flat out.
Interest continues to grow in GlenWyvis, particularly on the subject of investment. Our aim of being Scotland's first whisky distillery to be locally owned and completely powered by the Scottish weather is slowly becoming a reality. Stay tuned for news on some very exciting investment opportunities to be announced soon.
