Cygnet Gin Sustainability Committment

The beauty of our world deserves protection.

Leading The Industry

At Cygnet we recognise that spirits production is an energy-heavy and water-intensive process and we are fully committed to understanding, and reducing, the impact our distillery has on the planet.

Cygnet Gin is produced in Wales, we are proud that all of our production equipment is electric, and we have committed to switching to a 100% renewable energy tariff at the earliest opportunity.

Both Cygnet Welsh Dry Gin and Cygnet 22 bottles are 100% plastic-free, fully recyclable and screen printed using environmentally friendly and organic ink. We are also using a 100% biodegradable seal made from wood pulp in Wales. Thereby avoiding the use of paper and adhesive. Our neutral grain spirit is UK sourced along with a high number of our botanicals.

The Cygnet Bottle

We are particularly proud of our award-winning bespoke Cygnet 22 bottle, which has been designed to be exceptionally lightweight: at approximately 400g it weighs up to 50% less than the average spirits bottle meaning it requires fewer raw materials to produce and less energy to transport. In addition to being plastic-free, recyclable and refillable, our bottle-for-life is also designed with reuse at its heart, encouraging consumers to consider repurposing and extending the product life (from a water carafe to a striking single stem vase the opportunities are endless).

Committed To The Future

We are also committed to further reducing the impact of our packaging by moving bottle production closer to the UK with an ambition to produce all glass bottles in Wales. We are conscious that this is only the beginning of our sustainability journey, but this is a commitment we take seriously.

"I’m pragmatic and recognize that these goals will take time but it’s important to me personally that we stay on that path until the end.”
