As a proud recipient of a four-star rating from Visit Scotland, our establishment is more than just a distillery; it's a testament to Scotland's rich tapestry of myths, legends, and folklore.

But beyond the name, our commitment to crafting the finest whisky and beer is unwavering. We seamlessly blend time-honoured techniques with contemporary innovations, ensuring every sip tells a story of the Highlands.


Our dedication to sustainability sets us apart. Not only are we one of the lowest carbon distilleries in the country, but we also harness the power of the River Ness to fuel our operations. This commitment extends to every facet of our production, from the eco-friendly amenities to our sustainable on-site energy centre and the 'Brewstillery'.


The Uile-bheist experience doesn't end with our products. Our tours offer an immersive journey into the heart of our operations, intertwined with tales of ancient Scottish myths and legends. As you explore, you'll discover how we utilise the River Ness's energy, witness the craft of whisky production, and be among the first to see history in the making at Uile-bheist.


In essence, Uile-bheist is not just a destination; it's an experience.
