About This Competition

The first whisky to be produced in Dingwall in nearly a hundred years. Nestled beneath the mass of Ben Wyvis in the Scottish Highlands, GlenWyvis Distillery was established in 2015. The idea was to unite the community of Dingwall through the creation of a distillery principally owned by local people. More than 3,000 like-minded people invested in GlenWyvis to create the 100-percent, community-owned distillery.

3,600 individually numbered bottles of the GlenWyvis 3 Year Old Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky were allocated to  shareholders, whose investment enabled the build and development of the distillery. A further 2,000 bottles were available to pre-order in late 2020, and a final 200 went on sale a few weeks back.  Suffice to say, that out of all the recent inaugurals, this one is arguably the most prized.

Made from a batch of 18 casks, including 15 first fill ex-Tennessee whiskey (80%), two first-fill ex-Moscatel (15%) and one refill Hogshead (5%), the grain-forward whisky showcases the unique fruitiness of extra-long fermentation. The nose is  light and floral with a hint of malty sweetness. The palate brings a burst of stone-fruit, giving way to brown sugar, with a finish of lingering vanilla balanced with ripe orchard fruit.
