Diageos Bulleit Bourbon distillery in Kentucky will be powered by renewable energy

Diageo's Bulleit Bourbon distillery in Kentucky will be powered by renewable energy

The Johnnie Walker owner said yesterday that the new Bulleit Bourbon distillery in Kentucky will be fully powered by renewable electricity. The site, which was first announced in 2018, is expected to be fully operational by next year.

In February, Pernod revealed plans to turn one of its Scotch whisky distilleries into a carbon-neutral site. The Glentauchers distillery in Speyside will be converted to biofuel power within two years.

According to Diageo, the project to electrify operations at the Bulleit plant will result in one of the largest carbon-neutral distilleries in North America. 

"This is a significant step to strengthen our commitment to minimising our carbon emissions and will result in an important reduction of Diageo's environmental impact on a global level," said Diageo's president for North America supply, Perry Jones.

The project will include ensuring that all on-site vehicles are electric-powered. The vehicles will be charged using renewable energy.
