B Corp certified, they use only organic Scottish barley in a distillery powered only by renewable energy. The whisky is bottled in an a 100% recycled clear glass bottle, and 99.97% of their waste is diverted from landfill.

History

Founder Annabel Thomas started Nc’nean to change the way the world thinks about whisky from Scotland. Her mission was to create a whisky which could exist in harmony with this planet we call home. After leaving her job in London in 2013, she spent four years raising funds and building the distillery from the ground up on the west coast of Scotland. In 2017, Nc’nean started distilling their very own organic whisky, and in 2020 their first bottle was released.
