We start our sustainability journey from where others hope to be. Our distillery intends to be carbon neutral from the start and, very soon thereafter, carbon negative.
We aim to be leaders in the sector of sustainable distilling and will set ourselves ambitious goals to meet both our internal strict criteria as well as those of the B-Corporation.
The market’s ambitions for tomorrow are The Wiltshire Whisky Distillery Company’s goals for today.
It was the importance of sustainability that led us to choose the Fonthill Estate for our distillery.
Every ingredient within every drop of our single malt and grain whiskies originates from the estate upon which the distillery stands, providing us with the platform to create whisky that really reflects the ‘terroir’ of Wiltshire.
We will also produce a range of gins and botanical spirits inspired by our beautiful surroundings.
Our gins will be made from neutral grain spirit produced in our own stills at above 96% ABV. We will produce a selection of gins from a number of recipes.
We will be working closely with UK charity Plantlife (plantlife.org.uk) to establish, grow and maintain stocks of juniper, the base botanical for gin, on the chalk downlands of the Fonthill Estate.
Our botanical spirits will be made from the new make spirit that would have become whisky had it been left to mature in a cask for at least three years.
This new make spirit will be re-distilled with a range of botanicals and aged in oak casks for a few months to produce a spirit drink helping to drive the establishment of a new category.
The Great Bustard, prominent on the Wiltshire flag, will be a key creative asset
of our brand identity.
These birds are a missing piece of UK wildlife heritage, artificially removed from the ecosystem due to over zealous trophy hunters. They were extinct in the UK from 1832 but have been re-introduced to nearby Salisbury Plain in Wiltshire where a breeding programme is now underway.
Amazingly, the Great Bustard was found on the Fonthill Estate for the first time in late February this year.
