Guests of GlenWyvis Distillery gathered at Bogbain Farm in Inverness on Friday 17th June for ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dram’.

The event featured unique tasting opportunities of the distillery’s inaugural release Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky and soon to be launched 2018 vintage Batch 2—to raise money for Cornerstone.

Chief Executive, Hazel Brown and Chair of Cornerstone, Peter Bailey both attended the event and spoke passionately about the amazing care Cornerstone provides. This event was the brilliant idea of Andy Fisher, Vice Chairman of GlenWyvis who had heard about Cornerstone and wanted to partner up with the charity to create a unique community event and make a difference.

This was Cornerstone’s first large scale fundraising event since lockdown—so the fundraising team were raring to go! In partnership with the Dingwall Distillery, GlenWyvis, this amazing event had been initially postponed due to COVID and had been a few years in the making. The fundraising team were delighted that it was so successful—they managed to raise an incredible £8,827!

A big shout out also must be given to the Volunteer Team from the Moray branch: Ashley Aitken, Elaine Duffy and Fran Harrison. They were all super stars!
