The long way to the top: meet Scotland's slowest distillery

Whisky lovers are now spoilt for choice with an ever-increasing range from Scotland, Ireland and Tasmania available on their local bottle shop shelves and in cocktail bars.

Glengoyne - with a history dating back to 1833 - are the first whisky producers to announce a 100% recyclable and smart re-usable packaging solution.

With Loch Lomond in the distance, the Glengoyne Distillery is just 25km north of Glasgow and all of the new packaging materials have been sourced close to home base and are sustainability approved.

Glengoyne, available at Dan Murphy's and BSW stores in Australia, boasts it is Scotland's slowest distilled malt whisky. Each whisky is matured for a minimum pf six years in custom-made oak casks.

“We are excited to unveil our new sustainable packaging as part of our long-standing commitment to the preservation of the environment," says Martin Howey, Glengoyne business development director.

"We were the first Scottish distillery to adopt a wetlands facility for our liquid waste (home to 14,500 plants and abundant wildlife including two beehives) and we have been powered by renewable wind energy since 2019, earning us the reputation of Scotland’s greenest distillery.

"All of the new packaging materials have been sourced locally, close to the distillery to reduce carbon footprint (apart from corks and capsules which currently come from Europe). The 10, 12, Legacy Series and Cask Strength packaging is 100% recyclable.

“This is a project two years in the making and we are very proud to be the first Whisky producer to introduce a 100 % recyclable and reusable packaging solution as part of our long-standing commitment to sustainability and the future.”

Glengoyne's range includes 10, 12, 21, 25 and 30 Year-Olds, plus the highly awarded special releases including Cask Strength and Legacy Series.
