GlenWyvis Distillery, the world’s first 100% community-owned, fully sustainable distillery, is looking to bring in new blood to the team via the appointment of new voluntary board directors.
Established in 2015, the distillery has enjoyed early success.
It boasts 3,600 members, of which more than 45% (1,688) live in the IV postcode area; it broke all records with its first share offer; and has won numerous awards for its GoodWill Gin.
This year will also see the release of its first whisky, a 3-Year-Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky, which has already sold out via pre-order.
Speaking about the search for new directors, David Graham, Chairman of the Board, explained:
“We are particularly keen to bring in new directors who have professional expertise and experience in sales and marketing to the whisky and spirits trade; commercial legal work; information technology; and community development.
“If you have the skills, experience, energy and enthusiasm, please apply to help us grow the business.
“We had phenomenal support from the local community in and around Dingwall when we established the distillery back in 2015 and I’m convinced there is a wealth of talent on our doorstep that we could tap into.
“I really hope that local residents, with appropriate business experience, will be inspired to join the team as we look to take the distillery forward.
“There are exciting times ahead and it would be great to have new people on board to be part of that journey.”
Board membership is open to members of the distillery.
If you are interested in becoming a member, please contact GlenWyvis Distillery directly.
The board meets one evening a month (currently digitally) and it is hoped that the new directors will be in post ahead of the annual general meeting later this month.
Those wishing to apply are encouraged to contact the GlenWyvis Distillery team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
