Distilleries leading the way in sustainability

Ardnamurchan, Scotland

Highland­-based Scotch whisky distillery Ardnamurchan, located at Glenbeg, Lochaber, on the Ardnamurchan Estate, opened in 2014. The facility is wholly reliant on renewable energy.

The fuel needed to power the distillery is sourced entirely from local suppliers. The electricity comes from a hydro-­electricity generator in the river, while heat energy is generated from a biomass boiler.
