SUSTAINABILITY

WE RESPECT, NUTURE AND SUPPORT. WE TAKE OUR SUSTAINABILITY AND ENVIRONMENTAL COMMITMENTS SERIOUSLY.

At Clonakilty Distillery, our passion is to work in harmony with nature, respecting the purity of our land and sea, to craft spirits that feed the soul. We work closely with our colleagues and the local community in Clonakilty while constantly seeking improvements to implement best practice so that we at Clonakilty Distillery can make our own difference in helping to shape a better world.

We take our environmental responsibilities seriously, prioritising sustainable actions where possible. These actions can be summarised under the following headings, Our Environment & Community, Energy & Resource Management and Grain to Glass.
