EDM: Congratulating Glenkinchie Distillery


I was happy to table the following motion in the House of Commons, congratulating the Glenkinchie on receiving a Green Tourism Gold Award.

The motion reads: “That this House congratulates the Glenkinchie Distillery in East Lothian for its receipt of a Green Tourism Gold Award; welcomes the commitment of Diageo to improving the sustainability of its distilleries and attractions; notes that the Distillery has done significant work to achieve that award in the areas of water and energy usage, waste, nature conservation and travel; further welcomes the commitment from the team at the Distillery to continue the work of improving their environmental effect across the distillery complex and as a vital part of East Lothian’s high-quality drink and tourism economies; and looks forward to seeing that improvement in action as the distillery re-opens for business in the near future.”
