Environment, charities and collaborations

Environment

We are trying to make our operation as sustainable as possible. Here's how:

  • Our distillery and shop are run on 100% renewable power with Good Energy, a British renewable electricity company.
  • Our copper still runs on this renewable energy too - rather than gas power.
  • All our products and packaging are now 100% plastic free.
  • We recycle 100% of our cardboard waste, 100% of our glass waste (including providing used bottles to upcycling crafts people) and 100% of our recyclable plastic waste.
  • We make all our local deliveries in our electric vehicle.
  • We encourage customers to re-use their old bottles.
  • We work with local York company PurePallets that re-use discarded wood for our shop fittings and gifts.

We are now working hard on our 2020 Carbon Neutral Plan. This will be attained by a mix of composting our botanicals, recycling and re-using even more materials, a bottle refill & re-use scheme, tree planting initiatives, support for litter picking projects and an environmental audit of all our suppliers.
