We understand the importance of preserving drinking water, which is one of our treasures
We are aware of our responsibility to address climate change
We are committed to eliminating our ecological footprint on the land
The alcohol production process requires a large amount of potable water, especially during the initial stages of grain processing. It is mainly used for malting and fermentation in vats. It is added directly to our products and even becomes an essential element in their elaboration. The losses are minimal or even negligible.
Côte Des Saints Distillery, since its conception, has been vigilant to implement strategies to reduce the carbon footprint on our environment.By locating our own fields adjacent to our production sites, it becomes possible to control all stages of production, restrict the use of fertilizers and eliminate long transports between the fields and our silos. At each stage of the production, we have selected the most appropriate energy source, favoring renewable or less polluting energies at every turn. Côte Des Saints Distillery also looks to give a second life to barrels that would otherwise be destroyed.The use of barley as the main ingredient allows for a significant amount of carbon to be fixed as the useful sugars of this crop have a favorable footprint compared to other cereals used by other distilleries. The limited amount of carbon we produce does not have to go very far to be reabsorbed....
As an artisanal producer, Côte des Saints Distillery generates very little waste from its distillation processes.
Côte des Saints Distillery is proud to say that all consumables purchased are sorted and recycled before disposal.
Further, all organic waste such as brewery tank residue is collected and provided free of charge to local farmers to feed livestock as it is a quality food rich in protein. Côte des Saints is proud of this program, as it meets our corporate goal to minimize the impact on the environment and helps us to give back to the land and in the end, also supports our local community.
