Leaving our legacy
Since our opening in 2014, we have been working on establishing a number of juniper plantations across our estate, planting approximately 1000 plants a year.
Juniper is not only critical to gin production, but the majority of the UK's juniper species is currently under threat from a pathogen, so we decided we simply had to try and help.
Along with juniper plants we’ve planted 1000's of hedges, peas and oak trees. Growing oak trees will take at least 50 years, but Arbikie Distillery is a long-term project of creating a legacy family business and this oak will allow us to have our own new oak casks for maturing whisky in the future when the next generation is running the distillery.
"Our ethos at Arbikie from our inception has been to try and create world-class premium spirits where all ingredients are grown on our Single Estate farm. Minimising our carbon footprint and working with the wonderful home grown ingredients to create one of the world’s most sustainable distilleries.”
