We are very excited to announce that Marble Distilling Co. & The Distillery Inn was named as a 2017 Green Hotelier Award Winner and the only North American property to be recognized! The Green Hotelier awards received a record number of applicants from around the world this year and properties were judged on their efforts to reduce energy and water consumption, their waste output, their roles as responsible businesses to their employees and in the local community, as well as looking at how they communicate their sustainable and responsible ethos to guests.
Marble Distilling Co. & The Distillery Inn was Highly Commended for 2017 in the Americas. “We really loved your ethos and commitment to sustainability and community and you were a very close second to our winner,” said Siobhan O’Neill, Editor of Green Hotelier.
The Green Hotelier Award comes on the heels of both an article by Sierra Club about socially conscious spirit entrepreneurs and a Master’s Medal in Green Initiatives, the highest award allotted, from The Global Spirits Masters series. Produced by UK-based The Spirits Business, which has long celebrated the international spirits industry, they created the Global Distillery Masters to celebrate the achievements and innovations of the distilleries themselves, beyond their spirits. “This is an example of what you should be doing” said Judge David T. Smith, Founder of the Craft Distilling Expo.
“We are honored to receive these prestigious awards, and that people are beginning to realize that you can embrace sustainable business practices and systems to create unique offerings,” said Co-Founder & Head Distiller Connie Baker. “Not only do we distill first-rate spirits and provide guests with a unique luxury travel experience, we are saving 4.1 million gallons of water annually and recapturing enough energy annually to power 20 homes.”
It’s Time – People are starting to notice our sustainability initiatives, in addition to our amazing spirits. Marble Distilling Co. received a Masters Medal for Green Initiatives (the highest award) from the UK based Global Distillery Masters. Judges stated “the figures for water savings are astonishing.” In March, The Denver International Spirits Competition awarded ALL FOUR […]
