Crafting a Sustainable Future

As stewards of American Whiskey, we see it as our job to make sure there is high-quality whiskey available for years to come. This means it’s also our job to be good neighbors and stewards of the natural resources used to create our whiskeys.

From Bark
to Bottle

Cork is a 100% natural material that’s sustainable both environmentally and economically. It also happens to have much more in common with American Whiskey than you may think.

Investing in Oak’s Future

Bourbon needs oak barrels. To help ensure a sustainable supply of white oak for generations to come, we've partnered with Independent Stave Company (ISC) and started at the source: loggers.

The stakes are huge for
white oak. We have to start
managing it now in order
to have a sustainable source
for future generations.
