One of the most iconic names in the food and drinks sector; Glenmorangie uses water from the surrounding Highlands to give its Whiskies their distinctive quality. In line with this crucial link to the landscape, the company also has an approach to their environmental responsibilities which is both visionary and sustainable.
In 2014 Glenmorangie forged an ambitious partnership with Heriot-Watt University and the Marine Conservation Society known as the Dornoch Environmental Enhancement Project (DEEP). Treated effluent from the distillery is discharged from the facility and further purified by a native European oyster reef that has been placed in the Dornoch firth.
In addition, the treatment incorporates an Anaerobic Digestion (AD) process, with green energy generated as a by-product which is returned to the distillery. This not only enhances Glenmorangie’s already strong sustainability credentials; it is an environmental first for a distillery.
