The Glenmorangie Company - Partnership Scotland Sponsor

The Dornoch Environmental Enhancement Project (DEEP) is a ground-breaking initiative to restore Native European oysters to the Dornoch Firth. It has been pioneered by Glenmorangie in partnership with Heriot-Watt University and the Marine Conservation Society.

DEEP is a project that will benefit nature, business and the community.

The project’s vision is to restore long-lost oyster reefs to the Firth, to enhance biodiversity and also act in tandem with Glenmorangie’s new Anaerobic Digestion (AD) plant, which will purify the by-products created through the distillation process – an environmental first for a distillery.

The AD plant is purifies up to 95% of the waste water that the Distillery releases into the Firth, with the remaining 5% of the organic waste naturally cleaned by the oysters – nature’s ecosystem champions.

In pursuit of its vision to enhance the marine biodiversity of the Dornoch Firth, Glenmorangie and its partners last year placed 300 oysters in its protected waters, to confirm the species could survive. For the second phase of the project which began in October 2018, a total of 20,000 oysters are to be introduced into the sea near Glenmorangie’s Highland home. The long term vision is to recreate a self- sustaining native oyster reef - the first time this has been attempted in a Marine Protected Area in Europe.
