The distilling industry in Scotland is steeped in tradition and its products are revered, enjoyed, collected and exported throughout the world. But the energy-intensive processes used to make this ‘uisge beatha’ are not conducive to the collective will to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and meet the Scotch Whisky Association’s target of net zero emissions from its own operations by 2040.
