It appears that Marker’s Mark to efforts to become more sustainable in 2008, when it incorporated a co-generation system, allowing it to reduce the company’s use of natural gas by 15% to 30%. The facility, designed by Ecovation, anaerobically treats “the liquid portion of the whole stillage and process waters produced during bourbon-making,” to create methane biogas, which is used to help power the process of bourbon-making (click here).
There also are a number of other sustainable or organic liquors out there, among them: Square One organic vodka, made with 100% organic American rye, 4Copas says it makes tequila using 100% organic Blue Agave, 360 Vodka uses an energy-efficient process to distill it four times and filter it five times and Benromach Organic is an organic scotch certified by Great Britian.
Unfortunately, none of these can be truly eco-friendly until they find a container other than glass that can still preserve the quality of the liquor. The cost of shipping alone puts a large amount of harmful gases into the air.
