As a means to increase sustainability within its business and local community, Three Wrens have announced a new service to allow customers to re-fill their gin bottles directly at its distillery in Cheshire, removing extra packaging from circulation.
Since opening in 2019, the company has pledged its commitment to environmental causes by remaining self-sufficient for many of the botanicals in their gins. The bison grass for its award-winning gin is grown from seed directly on site – in keeping with the company’s ‘garden to glass’ philosophy.
Three Wrens distillery ships all orders in fully recyclable packaging, and work with Ecology to plant thousands of trees annually to reduce their carbon footprint, and achieved carbon neutral status last year.
Owner and distiller Nick Wadeson commented:
“We’ve always been passionate about sustainability and using home-grown ingredients, but we wanted to go one step further and allow our customers to opt-out of packaging entirely. Now those who enjoy Three Wrens gin can do so by coming directly to the source! It’s very important for us to be an environmentally conscious distillery.”
Three Wrens was honoured last year with several international awards, including the Golden Fork award (and 3-star accreditation) at the Guild of Fine Food Great Taste Awards.
You can find Three Wrens’ brand new distillery at Juniper House in Combermere. In a partnership with Go-Too Rural Buses, you can pre-book a journey to the distillery from Nantwich, get dropped off right outside the doors and picked up afterwards, allowing for easy travel to and from the new premises.
There is also ample parking on-site, and customers also get £5 off the price of gin when they refill their bottles.
