Zero carbon homegrown British Vodka – Sapling Spirits
Buy one get one tree!
VODKA lovers can enjoy a smooth tasting British spirit which tastes and does good as for every bottle produced, a tree is planted. – making it the ultimate carbon neutral nature-friendly gift.
Sapling Spirits is a British drink brand for the modern-day. They are on a mission to help turn the world’s spirit industry into a natural force for good by planting a tree for every bottle of the vodka which is produced.
By buying a bottle as a Father’s Day or another gift, you are giving something which lasts much longer than intakes to consume a fully recyclable and plastic-free bottle, in a sensible and moderate way of course. As one tree can absorb up to 1.5 tonnes of carbon in its lifetime and making a bottle of vodka emits about 2.5kg of carbon – you could say each bottle of Sapling pays back over 535 times.
Buy one get one tree
For every 70cl bottle produced, a tree is planted. But this is not done in some far-removed way as on each bottle a unique code tells you what tree was planted where and a little about the planting project, and you can track your tree online and in many instances, you may be able to visit it. From fruit trees in London to oak trees in Bristol, it is the local communities who benefit from the planting projects.
Made in the heart of London Sapling use local ingredients to reduce transport emissions. It is four times distilled from 100% British wheat with charcoal filtered, de-ionised water. The high starch content of the wheat leaves a fresh finish and a natural sweetness which makes Sapling easy to sip neat or the perfect ingredient in a range of low carbon cocktails.
Good times need good drinks
Sapling is the brainchild of co-founders and friends Ed Faulkner and Ivo Devereux.
Ed, explains, “We hold two key principles close to our heart; producing vodka of the highest quality and giving back to the earth that brings forth our wheat.
“Sapling is a lovely vodka. It’s clean, creamy smooth and has a touch of sweetness. Forget about that “I’ve just sipped unleaded petrol” experience you might have had with supermarket vodka and in these worrying times you don’t have to tackle supermarket queues or restrictions, you can buy online and have it safely delivered to your door.”
Sapling’s long, strange trip
Friends since school, Ed and Ivo were working on tree planting projects around the UK. They needed both volunteers and money in order to plant more trees, but the worthy approach wasn’t getting enough of either.
Instead, they made a bar in a clearing and threw a party. That worked. The bar grew into a festival and they never looked back. Encouraged, they looked for ways to get even more people into the virtuous circle of good times for a good planet and Sapling Spirits was born.
A 70cl bottle costs £30 from the Sapling Spirits website with postage on top. Other sizes are available as well as a range of mixers and associated products.
