The Botanist partners with Botanic Gardens Conservation International
27 July 2020
All the Rémy Cointreau brands share a deep connection to terroir, and The Botanist Gin is no exception. 22 foraged botanicals are hand-picked locally and sustainably on Islay across an entire growing season to produce our exceptional gin. Protecting the island’s biodiversity has been a concern for The Botanist from the start.
Indeed, sustainability has always been important to The Botanist, which is why they have a long-term vision to be more sustainable in everything they do. Becoming B Corp certified was a huge achievement that helped solidify the distillery long-term commitment, and quantify its impact toward a more sustainable future.
Since its inauguration in 2015, The Botanist Foundation has been supporting plant conservation and environmental projects on Islay. Today, we are happy to announce its partnership with BGCI, Botanic Gardens Conservation International, to support plant conservation and education beyond the island and in our global community. BGCI is an independent UK charity established in 1987 whose goal is to link the botanic gardens of the world in a global network for plant conservation. As plants around the world are increasingly threatened, The Botanist believes it is its responsibility to help support the work the BGCI is doing to raise public awareness and protect plant diversity.
