Spotlight Target Area: Community Engagement
The Great Northern Distillery understands how important it is to look after our
planet as much as possible and has embraced sustainability to drive continuous
improvement within its business.
In the area of community engagement, the Great Northern Distillery feel it is
important to give back to the local community and supported two charities in 2020,
North Louth Hospice and Home Care Foundation.
In addition, the company also recognised the unique opportunity it could play in
responding to the covid-19 pandemic and produced hand sanitiser on site, as well as
diverting grain alcohol - to assist others with hand sanitiser production while supply
chains were constrained. A large proportion of the hand sanitiser produced at the
distillery was donated to local hospitals, schools, charities and businesses.
