Distilleries leading the way in sustainability

10th April, 2019 by Nicola Carruthers

Glengoyne Distillery, Scotland

When it comes to responsible water use, Glengoyne was the first distillery in Scotland to trial the wetlands, focusing on creating less waste, using less energy, and encouraging more wildlife to thrive in the countryside surrounding the distillery.

Owned by Ian Macleod Distillers, the distillery invested £170,000 (US$216,000) in establishing a wetlands facility, which enables the distillery to ensure its waste disposal is clean and natural.
