The roadmap was developed by the Irish Whiskey Association and launched on Monday 30 May at Tullamore Distillery by Minister of State Pippa Hackett.
Ireland is a small island, with a large whiskey industry. As the world’s oldest whiskey tradition, and the EU’s second-largest spirit export, the Irish whiskey industry takes seriously our responsibilities to be sustainable, both locally and globally. As worldwide sales of Irish whiskey continue to increase, our industry is determined to work together to decrease our environmental impact.

The Irish whiskey industry will work together to make Ireland the home of the world’s most sustainable distilleries and whiskey brands, making a net-positive contribution to the environment, climate, people and place; and forming an important part of a regenerative and circular economy in Ireland and globally.
