If the saying ‘you’re a product of your environment’ is true, then we’re lucky our environment is beautiful Scotland.
We don’t think there’s anywhere better in the world to make beer and we’re on a journey to make sure future generations can still enjoy Tennent’s in the same stunning country we all live in now.
David Attenborough is right, plastic’s not fantastic and by 2021 we’ll be single use plastic free. This will take 150 tonnes of plastic out of the environment each year (that’s the same weight as a blue whale. A nice wee fact for ye, there).
But that’s not enough.
So, by 2025 not only will we be completely plastic free, we’ll also be carbon neutral. And our new CO2 recovery system will take the equivalent of 27,000 flights to London of CO2 out of the atmosphere. Because we all need to do a bit more for our big, wide world.
Loch Katrine provides us the fresh highland water needed to make Tennent’s Lager — a source that’ll never run out given it gets handily topped up by the glorious Scottish rain. And we’ve also reduced annual water usage at our brewery by 24.3 million litres. That’s 42 million pints. Cheers to that!
We work with more than 100 Scottish farms, many for generations, to provide another key ingredient, our golden barley. Harvested from the Borders to the Black Isle, we’re committed to only ever using the best of Scotland to make Scotland’s best.
We’ve always wanted to bring you the very best lager we can. But that doesn’t mean just making a great, crisp, refreshing pint. It also means wanting to do right by Scotland and working towards bettering our environment.
Because life is bigger than beer.
