A first for the Real Ale & Gin Festival – and indeed the region – is Glen Wyvis. The distillery is based in Dingwall and, after adding gin to their whisky collection, are now our nearest gin distiller! The entire set-up is the first of its kind as it is community run and anyone can become a shareholder.


The Plockton Hotel has invited Glen Wyvis to come along on Sunday (29 May) to lead a tasting. Their gin is made from 9 different botanicals which includes locally picked hawthorn. It has a crisp full bodied taste with distinct hints of citrus. Recommended with a slice of orange/lemon and a sprig of coriander.
