We love Gower and we try everything we can to protect the environment. Sustainability governs all the decisions we make and we are constantly reviewing our processes.
All of our packaging is recycled and recyclable and we have eliminated plastic in all packing.
We forage for botanicals using the Foraging Code as this helps keep Gower special for everyone. Our base grain spirit is Soil Association organic, our rum is Fair
Trade and organic and we buy local and ethically sourced botanicals where possible.
We sell our gin in both bottles (now with 65% recycled content and significantly lighter in weight) and eco-pouches; both glass bottles and the pouches are recyclable, and if you live in Swansea
the bottles can also be refilled in Cheers Wine Merchants in the Mumbles – they are just two different ways of ensuring a circular loop is created for re-using and recycling raw materials to ensure
as much re-use as possible, reducing the pressure on obtaining new natural materials. We know also that many of our gin fans like to up-cycle our bottles into lights, candles, vases and even bird
There are additional benefits for the eco pouches we sell, however, in terms of space and weight, when being carried and transported. This is where the pouches come into their own; they have
less volume and are much lighter than glass so ideal for travelling, al-fresco dining and camping and they take less time to chill. The pouches are recycled via Terracycle UK and converted into
plastic granules which are used to make new products. The important thing for us is to give people a choice and reduce the use of raw materials wherever possible.
We were delighted with being Highly Commended for Environmental Sustainability in Gin Guide Awards 2021 and winning Sustainable Business of the year in the Food and Drinks Awards
