Cooper King Distillery launches England’s first net zero energy whisky… and it sold out in ten minutes!
3 November 2023
Yorkshire Mark member, Cooper King Distillery, has produced the first whisky in England distilled using net zero energy. They kicked off their first ever whisky Expedition Series with First Edition – Fruit + Spice, and all bottles were sold within ten minutes of going on sale!
With just 589 bottles produced, this bottle reflects ‘a journey of discovery through the finest casks in the warehouse’ and benefits from hand-mashed, floor-malted heritage grains, which were copper pot distilled, matured and bottled at the distillery in Yorkshire.
The exceptional whisky is the result of six years of dedication to sustainability including carbon footprint reduction and is 27 years ahead of the UK Government’s 2050 net-zero target. Reinforcing the sustainability credentials of this exceptional single malt are its lightweight bottles made from 55% recycled glass, biodegradable cellulose tampers, innovative stopped derived from renewable sugar cane and labels printed of FSC certified paper.
The self-built, award-winning distillery are donating £5 from every bottle of the series to Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust to fund life-changing apprenticeships for young people in rural areas, to help protect vital UK habitats. Cooper King aims to raise £17,250 for the trust in the next 12 months.
