Liverpool gin distillery turns to aluminium bottles


Turncoat Gin Distillery has switched to aluminium bottles in a bid to slash its carbon footprint.

The Liverpool-based spirits maker said the new containers were more than four-fifths lighter than traditional glass alternatives.

The reusable bottles will each save 400 grammes of carbon emissions over their lifecycle, according to the company.

Turncoat head of distillery Edward Ridding said: “We recognise the importance of sustainability and are committed to minimising our environmental impact.

“Aluminium bottles also offer a range of benefits for our stockists including reduction in breakages and improved product lifespan.

“This is the first of many changes here at the distillery as we work towards becoming carbon neutral.”

Ridding the move “reflects our dedication to creating a positive impact on the environment”.

He added: “We hope that our partners in the licensed on-trade can work with us to recycle, reuse and reduce their carbon footprints.”
