Sustainability

ECO PACKAGING

At Dinorwig Distillery, we’re working on reducing our environmental impact and use of single-use plastics. Instead of having a plastic tamper seal on our bottles, we have a paper watch strap that goes over the cork to secure form tampering. We use biodegradable twine to attach swing tags; avoid vinyl stickers; and, opt for tissue paper made from recycled materials. When you buy a bottle from our online shop, it will come wrapped in biodegradable bubble wrap and a recyclable cardboard box secured for transit with eco tape. Some plastics are still unavoidable, but we are continuously looking for alternatives and working on our environmental impact.

Conservation

We set out to create a gin made with exclusively local ingredients but discovered that juniper is in rapid decline in Wales and across the UK. Rather than contribute to the problem by applying for a licence to pick endangered juniper berries from the hillside, we decided to buy in juniper from a trusted UK supplier. We chose Macedonian juniper for its rich aroma and depth of flavour.

We now grow juniper in the distillery garden and support the conservation of juniper in the UK by donating £1 from the sale of every 70cl bottle of Blue Slate Gin to Plantlife, a British conservation charity working to save threatened plant species.

We also are Business Members of the Snowdonia Society which works to protect the landscape of the national park, conserve diverse wildlife and support the area’s unique cultural heritage.

Dinorwig Distillery

Our tiny mountainside distillery is nestled beneath the slate quarries of Dinorwig, looking out towards Snowdon. Inspired by the brutal beauty of this location, we only make gin using botanicals that thrive here. This palate of rich, local flavours and the purest water from our own mountain well sets our gin apart and roots it in the landscape.
