HRH Princess Royal Opens Glenbeg Distillery
The organisers couldn't have asked for a better day, with somewhere over seventy people attending the opening of a major development for this peninsula. The distillery is unusual in that it is powered by renewables - wood chip boilers, and electricity produced by hydro power and wind turbines. More, the by-products from the process, such as the draff and the pot ale, will go to local agricultural use.
HRH impressed us. She spoke to everyone, showed interest in everything, and has a wonderful knack of putting people at ease and drawing them out.
