One of Speyside’s oldest whisky distilleries will become one of Scotland’s greenest distilleries as well via a £3 million biogas project announced yesterday. Balmenach, which is also the home of Caorunn Scottish Gin, said work had already started on the project, which will significantly reduce the distillery’s carbon footprint. The owner, Inver House Distillers, said it had commissioned a new anaerobic digestion system, which breaks down the co-products of whisky production using micro-organisms to produce clean, methane-rich biogas to power the site.
