As an SME, we strive to do our bit to reduce our carbon footprint and be environmentally responsible. The following practices are what we do currently, with plans to expand this following our successful SIETF (Scottish Industrial Energy Transformation Fund) grant application.

  • Reduction in output from 4 million Litres of Alcohol (LOA) to 800,000 LOA results in reduced energy use
  • On-site warehousing – 16 on-site warehouses mean there is no need for haulage of casks

  • 134 solar panels were installed in a neighbouring field to power our distillery in the most green manner possible
  • Pot ale is processed into bio-gas at a nearby digestion plant, which can be used for electricity generation or returned to the gas grid
  • Pre-heat our wash using hot pot ale from previous distillation
  • Pre-heat our low wines & feints using the hot spent lees from previous distillation
  • Excess heat from our production area is used for underfloor heating in our bar and tasting lounge

  • Heat recovery system, which uses heat from the condensate to assist in heating contents of heating tank 2
  • Battery-operated forklifts in operation at our warehouses
  • Warm water recovery from worts cooling is used to reduce energy consumption compared to starting with cold water

  • Exclusively work with UK suppliers for all our packaging materials – more expensive but significant reduction in carbon footprint
  • Electric Vehicle (EV) charging points installed at the distillery for visitor use, powered by our solar panels
  • On-site beehive to promote the ecosystem in our locality
