Wemyss Family Spirits, operator of both Wemyss Malts and Kingsbarns Distillery, has made a commitment to phase out presentation boxes and cartons across all its whisky brands. The company’s hope is to save more than one tonne of carbon each year and achieve its goal of reaching net zero carbon emissions.


William Wemyss, founder of the business, believes this move will help the company become more sustainable, with the hopes to become one of the greenest companies in the industry.


He said: “From day one, we wanted to create a spirits business that acted with real stewardship and care for the environment. 


“Consumers are rightly demanding more sustainable products so we’re hoping they’ll be receptive to the decision.” 


Wemyss added: “It’s a hugely exciting time for our spirits businesses. We are now applying real focus on the next steps with the aim of reaching net zero ahead of both industry and UK targets.”


Wemyss Family Spirits is set for expansion across 2024, with work to start on 12 bonded warehouses, a bottling plant in Glenrothes and Fife and with an increase in the bottling of whisky produced at Kingsbarns Distillery.
