B Better

March was B Corp month, and our social media feeds were full of inspiring companies from around the world whose determination to make a positive mark on the world has earned them B Corp status. 

It's fitting then that March was also the month that saw us submit our very own B Impact Assessment - the epic application form detailing how here at the distillery we are putting our commitment to the highest levels of social and environmental performance into action.

It will be some time until our application is assessed and we find out if we can join the ranks of B Corp certified businesses, but in the meantime we are enormously grateful to everyone who has offered us advice and guidance along the way. The process of filling in the rigorous impact assessment has highlighted the importance of making even the smallest changes to how we work, whether that's taking part in No Mow May or making our spent botanicals available for composting in order to make as positive a mark on the planet as we can.
