Last updated: 25 March 2022

Eleven distilleries in Scotland and six in England will receive the first phase of GBP 10 million government funding to go green by harnessing energy sources such as low-carbon hydrogen, biomass and repurposed waste. The funding will enable distilleries to cut emissions by almost a million tonnes of CO2 every year.


The successful distilleries will receive between £44,000 and £75,000 in the first phase of funding, helping them boost decarbonisation research and development, with schemes including the use of hydrogen and biofuel boilers and geothermal energy in their production processes.
