Distilleries leading the way in sustainability

Greensand Ridge, England

Kent-based Greensand Ridge in Kent claims to now be the UK’s first carbon-neutral distillery after implementing a number of sustainable systems.

The micro-distillery’s carbon-neutral certification, granted last month, was the “culmination of a great deal of work over the last year”.

Greensand Ridge commenced production in 2015 with the aim of having an “ultra-low” impact on the environment. The distillery produces gin, eau de vie, rum, and brandy.

Its team has implemented procedures related to renewable power, heat recovery systems, plastics removable and chemical-free production. Greensand Ridge also uses surplus produce from local famers, such as plums and apples, which supermarkets won’t take, to create its products.

    gutted to see Belgrove whiskey from Tasmania missing from this list. I’ve met the owner and was mindblown by his production techniques. have a look into it.
