Kentucky distilleries appreciate that the industry’s signature heritage and dependence on natural resources call for a commitment to environmental responsibility. They also recognize that a healthy environment requires everyone to be involved. The Kentucky Distillers’ Association therefore strives to engage suppliers, distillers, and consumers around the sustainable stewardship of wood, water, and grains – natural resources essential to the industry’s growth. We partner with groups like the Beverage Industry Environmental Roundtable (BIER), University of Kentucky’s White Oak Initiative, and Kentucky’s Energy & Environment Cabinet to bring our sustainability plans to life.
