Distillery Sustainability Award

Winner: Greensand Ridge Distillery

Kent‐based Greensand Ridge became the UK’s first carbon‐neutral distillery last year after it implemented a number of procedures relating to renewable power, heat recovery systems and chemical‐free production. It also uses surplus produce from local farmers, such as plums and apples that supermarkets will not take, to create its products.

The panel lauded the distillery for its truly holistic approach to sustainability, and said that it had set a pioneering example for others to follow.

Runner‐up: Glengoyne Distillery

Our runner‐up, Scotch whisky maker Glengoyne Distillery, has taken great steps to reduce its carbon footprint and also protect its surrounding environment.

Special commendation: Air Company

The special commendation went to Air Company for its groundbreaking innovation of capturing excess carbon dioxide from the air and turning it into vodka.
