fall, Kentucky brewers, distillers and wineries come together to talk about the
sustainability efforts currently being practiced in the industry
and to shape future sustainability endeavors. This gathering is known as
the Sustainable Spirits Summit (S3).
Started by the division and the Kentucky Distillers’ Association, the Sustainable Spirits
Summit began in 2011 when a handful of participants met at Wild Turkey
Distillery in Lawrenceburg, Ky. Over time this event has grown in
attendance and matured through participation and collaboration into
Kentucky’s Sustainable Spirits Initiative.
In addition to the summit, the initiative has developed multiple resources to assist Kentucky's brewers, distillers and wineries in their sustainability endeavors. These resources are available below.
