The 4th World Whisky Forum – taking place 21st to 23rd June at Stauning Whisky Distillery, Denmark – will highlight its focus on the importance of sustainability within the whisky industry, with important distillers and stakeholders from around the world set to attend the event.

Topics within sustainability will include the impact it has on the whisky industry (from production to consumption), the sustainability of cereal crops and supply wood, an in-depth look at the design of next-generation whisky distilleries, and the future of packaging.

Whyte & Mackay Master Whisky Maker Gregg Glass commented on the event, saying: The World Whisky Forum offers an exciting opportunity to meet with likeminded individuals across our industry from around the globe. It’s an honour to have been invited to discuss the use of finite resources. Last year, at Whyte & Mackay we announced our Scottish Oak Programme, through which we’re helping to establish the use of native oak across distilleries in Scotland. It’s an ongoing and rewarding project and I’m proud to be able to share our insights at the World Whisky Forum.”

The first day will include introductions, scene setting and a keynote speech with Tommy Rahbek Nielsen of sustainable energy provider Vestas Wind Systems, while day two will feature two study sessions exploring the future of sustainability within the industry.

The forum was co-founded by Jan Groth, Ingvar Ronde and Dave Broom, the latter of whom shared his thoughts on the event: “The role of the World Whisky Forum is to be a place where anyone working within the category can come, listen, debate, learn, and share. It is an example of the industry at its best, a collegiate space where everyone's opinion is valid, no matter how big or small your operation may be. No topic is more important than sustainability and navigating this complex area successfully will only be achieved by collective action and debate. I am looking forward eagerly to see what emerges at Stauning and encourage anyone interested to either attend in person - or virtually.”

The three previous World of Whisky Forums have taken place in Sweden, the UK and the US, with this year’s marking the first trip to Denmark. Attendees can also participate virtually, including panel discussions and distillery tours, with tickets available here.
