Your organisations purpose:

We are a craft distillery and fine dining restaurant located in Chatham, Kent. Our purpose is to create great-tasting spirits without compromising on quality. We have a glass-to-grain ethos and produce gin, vodka, and whisky.


What is your impact initiative?

Sustainable spirit-making processes. We use locally sourced grains from the Isle of Sheppey and the Isle of Grain. We have implemented measures in our distilling process to reduce our environmental impact.


The impact your initiative has had:

From a sustainability point of view, we have been able to cut our use of energy and water by improving our distillery processes.


Have you observed any direct benefits to your business or organisation as a result of the initiative?

In the last two years, we have been able to cut our use of service water (wastewater) by three thousand liters a day. We have installed a separate holding tank which allows us to reuse the same water for different steps in our fermentation process. We have also been able to cut water and energy use by installing a water flow meter. As well as being economically better, we do not have to cool the liquids using energy. We also installed an automatic booster system on our gas boiler which monitors the pressure levels in the tanks and switches off the gas that would be unnecessarily needed. All these small changes make a big difference in our environmental impact.


Have you observed any benefits to your visitors as a result of the initiative? 

We have been able to create a more sustainable product for our customers and our experiences can educate our customers on environmental impacts they may not be aware of.


What category/categories does your initiative fall under?

  • Reducing energy use
  • Food for Good – reducing food miles, local seasonal produce, plant-based & organic
