Distilleries leading the way in sustainability

10th April, 2019 by Nicola Carruthers

GlenWyvis, Scotland

GlenWyvis, Scotland’s ‘first’ community-­owned distillery, which is “100% powered by green energy”, is located on a farm, using its links to agriculture to remain sustainable. Its by-products are recycled and used as food for the farm’s cows.

The brainchild of farmer and helicopter pilot John McKenzie, the site marks the return of Scotch whisky distilling to Dingwall some 90 years after the last of the town’s original distilleries – Ferintosh, Ben Wyvis and Glenskiach – closed.

    gutted to see Belgrove whiskey from Tasmania missing from this list. I’ve met the owner and was mindblown by his production techniques. have a look into it.
