Irish Distillers: Securing quality ingredients and enhancing biodiversity

Jan 11, 2022

Our business is inextricably linked to the health of the ecosystems that make up our terroirs. Any degradation of these has a direct impact on the natural ingredients we depend on for our iconic brands. WEBWIRE – Tuesday, January 11, 2022 At Irish Distillers, we recognise the need to deepen and strengthen relationships with our spring barley growers. Our distillery in Midleton is located in the part of Ireland where this crop is largely grown, and as such, some of our suppliers are also our neighbours. -CONOR MCQUAID CEO, IRISH DISTILLERS Spring barley is a significant raw ingredient in making Irish whiskeys such as Jameson, Powers, Redbreast, and Midleton Very Rare, but the impact of global warming and land quality deterioration means net barley production in Ireland is predicted to fall. To tackle this issue and to help ensure a sustainable future for the industry Irish Distillers launched a programme to deepen their partnership with barley growers. Launched in 2020 the Sustainable Green Spring Barley Scheme now includes more than 200 barley growers. Easing the transition Recognising that concrete actions must be taken to mitigate current challenges and maintain the quality of production, Irish Distillers launched the scheme to help preserve the land and make progress on sustainability in a way that focuses on mutual long-term benefits for farmers and distillers. The programme is founded on three major commitments: improving the sustainability  of the spring barley sector; supporting farmers in reducing their carbon footprint; and enhancing biodiversity on Irish tillage farms. “We are delighted that more than 200 growers signed up to our Green Spring Barley scheme in its first year, a programme which financially incentivises farmers to grow spring barley sustainably and deliver additional environmental benefits on their farms.” CONOR MCQUAID CEO, IRISH DISTILLERS The Sustainable Green Spring Barley Scheme will evolve year on year with input from individual farmers as well as important industry partners such as grain merchants and organisations like Teagasc, Bord Bia, Irish Grain Assurance and the IFA National Grain. Incentivising farmers to grow sustainably Making the transition to sustainable growing practices comes at a cost so the programme financially incentivises growers who sign up to join the scheme. “:The quality of this barley is exceptional. Achieving this requires significant additional care and costs, which are borne by the farmer. The scheme announced today recognises the role that farmers play in the sustainable production of one of our most valuable agri-food exports.” MARK BROWNE IFA NATIONAL GRAIN COMMITTEE CHAIRMAN When growers meet the requirements of implementing the eight essential measures initiatives, the incentive is an additional direct payment of €15 per/tonne to those growers. Growers in the programme also choose three out of seven initiatives that have a direct and positive impact on biodiversity. In the programme’s first year every single one of the 200 growers who signed up met the essential measures and all of them made efforts to implement the optional biodiversity initiatives.
