Gin from a community owned distillery has arrived

Glenwyvis GinThe Tally Ho has now received our first bottle of Glenwyvis Gin. It’s truly delicious!

Glenwyvis will be the worlds first 100% community owned distillery, built to bring distilling back to this highland town of Dingwall. Glenwyvis has historic roots that stretch back to Ferintosh distillery in the 17th century, but in name it also honours two other former local distilleries: Glenskiach and Ben Wyvis. The innovative craft distillery will be 100% powered by renewable energy – and with over 2,600 founding members it is destined to play a major role in Highland distilling for years to come.

Glenwyvis will be a whisky distillery, but it’ll take time to build, and then more time to mature the whisky before it can be sold and drunk. So meanwhile, the enterprising Glenwyvis community have produced Glenwyvis Gin.

Made in Shetland from nine botanicals, including Ross-shire Hawthorn berries, Glenwyvis Gin is characterised by a fresh, clean, citrus finish. This unique gin has been bottled for you to celebrate the community- led revival of distilling in Dingwall.

We’ve also started stocking Sam’s cider from Winkleigh, Devon.
