A Toast to Sustainability


Glenfiddich has always been one of our favorite Scotch whiskies (or "malts," as the Scots would say), but now we have even more reason to fill our glasses with it. 

The distillery recently announced it has purchased a fleet of trucks that will run on biofuel created by the whisky's production waste.

Distilleries and breweries have repurposed their spent grains for centuries, mostly by sending them to farmers for animal feed and fertilizer. However, this is the first time a distillery has found a way to convert its waste to a low-carbon, low-particulate biofuel.

No word, however, on if the trucks' emissions smell like Scotch.
