The opening of GlenWyvis Distillery in late 2017 brought distilling back to Dingwall for the first time in 90 years.
Crowdfunding share offers by the business, set up as a community benefit society, attracted investors from 36 countries.
A share of all GlenWyvis’s future profits will be invested back into community projects locally and further afield.
Among the company’s future plans is the development of a Loch Ness Whisky Experience at the Loch Ness Clansman Hotel in a joint venture with its owners, Drumnadrochit-based Cobbs Group.
The proposed attraction will focus on the history of illicit distilling in the Highlands.
Ahead of its planned opening next year, GlenWyvis’s gin trailer will be based at the hotel, on the banks of the loch, throughout this summer season.
GlenWyvis Distillery manager Duncan Tait said: “While we’re finalising our plans for the full whisky experience, we’re delighted to be working with the Cobbs team to bring GlenWyvis to Loch Ness this summer.
“It comes as we are reaching the end of our second share offer – the target of £1.1 million is within touching distance – and is further evidence that we continue to move forward, not only with production on site in Dingwall, but with ideas to support our community benefit remit.
“We are in a very good place – as a business, as a team – and I’d like to thank John McKenzie for all his hard work in getting this incredible project to where we are today.
“With his continued support and the continued support of the board, I’m very excited about where the journey for GlenWyvis will lead in the coming years.”
GlenWyvis, which sells GoodWill Gin, produced at the Dingwall distillery, won the best artisan drink business category at the Scottish Rural Awards.
