Distillers take stewardship of the water environment seriously.
We need pristine water supplies to make whisky. Our focus is on
consistent supply of good quality water, obtained without detriment
to other users. Used water must be safely returned to the
environment. Water is a valuable resource, and we are committed to
using it efficiently.
Copper stills are essential to whisky, uniquely influencing the
spirit's character. Above certain levels, however, copper may be
harmful to aquatic animals and plants. The industry works hard to
minimise copper presence in discharges and it is essential to
maintain that commitment.
