Our Story

A distillery unlike any other

Nestled on the banks of the mighty River Ness, the new distillery, brewery and accommodation hub will be an attraction unlike any in Scotland, celebrating community and drawing visitors from far and wide to explore this, the very heart of the capital of the Highlands. 

A home dedicated to Scotch Malt Whisky distilling and brewing, delivered by masters of their craft. Uile-bheist will reawaken the senses to folklore and storytelling, celebrating Scotland's rich heritage and mythical creatures. 

What we do

Scotland is a country rich in folklore - a myriad of tales of monsters, myths and legends committed to memory and passed down through the generations. Uile-bheist distillery and brewery brings these incredible stories back to life, nourishing the modern explorer's need to be entertained. 

Located in Inverness at the very heart of the Scottish Highlands,

Uile-bheist distillery and brewery produce small batch artisan and craft whisky, along with locally brewed beer, all to be experienced at our newly commissioned visitor experience on the banks of the River Ness.

From opening we will be producing five core styles of beer - Craft Lager, Pale Ale, IPA, White IPA and Stout. 

The River Ness is literally at the heart of everything we do, with all of the water used in the brewing and distillation process being sourced from the river, as well as powering our on-site sustainability centre.
