We have a long-term vision to be more sustainable in all we do.

WHAT DOES SUSTAINABILITY MEAN TO US?

We are working to reduce the impact of our operations and become more environmental in our actions, all with a heightened sensitivity to creating spirit on our island home. However, as custodians, we must ensure that our impact is positive, and our distillery is left to a future generation in a better condition than how we inherited it. Only with this holistic approach can we improve the quality of life for our planet and our people.

Our distillery is home to four unique spirits; The Botanist Islay Dry Gin and our single malt whiskies, Bruichladdich, Port Charlotte and Octomore. We have outlined the ambitions which will shape their future under four key pillars of sustainability. We invite you to explore our plans and progress under Agriculture & Biodiversity, Packaging & Waste, Islay & Community, and Energy in more detail.

Energy

We have an ambition to decarbonise our distillery’s production process. We will reduce our carbon emissions and introduce greener sources of energy where possible.

AGRICULTURE & BIODIVERSITY

We will continue our research into sustainable agriculture, exploring the models necessary to make them viable. We will continue to support plant biodiversity in Islay and beyond, partnering with organisations to plan and implement change through The Botanist Foundation.

PACKAGING & WASTE

We are on a mission to use less and reuse more. From production to packaging, we will reduce our impact and reduce our waste.

ISLAY & COMMUNITY

Our social, economic and environmental impact on this island must be a positive one. Our communities on Islay and beyond will continue to be at the heart of every decision we make.
