Webinar – A Good Drink: In Pursuit of Sustainable Spirits
When?: Thursday, January 20th from 3-4 PM Eastern
What?: Sustainability operates on a continuum. There are a multitude of ways distillers can improve their impact on the environment. From expanding relationships with local farms and upgrading their facilities to practicing better waste management and focusing on packaging and the downstream effects of their products.
In her new book, A Good Drink: In Pursuit of Sustainable Spirits, Shanna Farrell goes in search of the bars, distillers, and farmers who are driving a transformation to sustainable spirits. These individuals are part of a growing trend to recognize spirits for what they are—part of our food system. With this revelation she also unveils the importance of spirit makers committing to sustainability.
Shanna will be joined by Scott and Ann from High Wire Distilling Co. in a conversation on January 20 as they discuss the book, give examples of distillers working in more environmentally minded ways, and provide some actionable items that distillers can take to reach their sustainability goals.
