Inchdairnie Distillery in Glenrothes is one of 17 businesses in the UK to be awarded government funding to go green.
The Distillery, operated by John Fergus and Co Ltd, is to receive over £70,000 from the fund to explore the use of hydrogen to decarbonise processed heat.
The £10 million Green Distilling Fund was launched by the UK Government last year to support the introduction of innovative low-carbon energy sources in the country’s whisky distilleries. Eleven distilleries across Scotland and six in England received funding from the first phase of awards to scope and develop a feasible pilot demonstration project. Later this year, the 17 distilleries will be invited to bid for Phase 2 funding to develop and demonstrate their projects.
