At Whitby Distillery, our gin and rum don't just offer an exceptional taste; they serve as a reminder of the beauty and inspiration we draw from our planet. We're delighted to share that our dedication to the environment goes beyond our distillery walls. Through our participation in the 1% for the Planet movement, we've been able to make a substantial contribution to two esteemed organisations: the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust and Surfers Against Sewage.

But what is 1% for the Planet, you might wonder? It's a global initiative that encourages businesses to commit to donating at least 1% of their annual sales to environmental causes. This commitment translates into tangible support for organisations working tirelessly to protect our landscapes, oceans, and the very ecosystems that fuel our creativity.

And here's where you, our cherished customers, step into the spotlight. Each purchase you've made has played a pivotal role in allowing us to make these generous donations. It's a testament to the power of collective action – when individuals and businesses unite for a shared cause, remarkable transformations occur.

We recognise the challenges that come with navigating rising costs, but our dedication to a healthier planet remains unwavering. The Yorkshire Wildlife Trust and Surfers Against Sewage align closely with our values, and contributing to their essential work is a priority for us.

So, here's to more than just a drink; here's to a toast for change, for choosing to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with us as we work towards a future where our planet thrives. As the tides of change continue to roll in, your support allows us to create waves of difference. From the heart of Whitby Distillery to your glass, we raise it to you, our valued customers, for embarking on this inspiring journey with us. Together, we're crafting a legacy of sustainability and impact. Cheers to you!
