Cooper King Distillery becomes the first in England to create Carbon Negative Gins

Sip, sip, hooray! Yorkshire-based Cooper King Distillery’s award-winning signature Dry and Herb Gins are now carbon-negative, meaning you can love gin and love the planet in equal measure.

For every bottle of these beautiful eco-friendly gins created, Cooper King removes more carbon from the atmosphere than is emitted[1] and plants 1 square metre of native UK woodland. Choosing to buy sustainable spirits allows you to reduce your impact on the environment by lowering carbon emissions, saving natural resources and reducing waste.

Cooper King’s classic Dry Gin (42% abv) features rich cardamom notes married with juicy citrus and floral layers of local honey to deliver a fresh, vibrant gin of exceptional character. Serve with Indian tonic water and a fresh rosemary sprig to create the delicious Garden G&T.

The eco-distillery’s cold-distilled Herb Gin (40% abv) has notes of fresh basil, beautifully balanced with fragrant lemongrass and aromatic clove which creates a bright, herbaceous gin. Perfectly served with light Indian tonic water and a fresh basil leaf for a refreshing Spring G&T.

Distilled with 100% green energy on efficient and innovative vacuum gin stills, before being bottled in a lightweight bottle made from 55% recycled glass at Cooper King’s distillery in Yorkshire, every bottle of Dry Gin and Herb Gin is delivered in plastic-free packaging.

Cooper King’s Dry and Herb Gins are both £39 for a 70cl bottle, available with free delivery from

Chris Jaume, Co-Founder, Cooper King Distillery said: “Producing flavour-driven, sustainable drinks has always been at the core of what we do, because we believe drinking good spirits needn’t cost the Earth. We’re delighted that we can now give people an extra reason to enjoy our signature gins, raising a toast to the planet as they enjoy the nation’s favourite tipple.”

The distillery has on-site beehives and a botanical garden to produce its own honey, basil and lemongrass, with spent botanicals composted on site or sent to a local bakery to be upcycled into delicious breads. Zero waste is sent to landfill. As part of its commitment to long term sustainability, the Cooper King team also recently planted juniper bushes on site to further reduce the carbon footprint of its future gins.

Cooper King Distillery values people, planet and prosperity. Turning its signature gins carbon-negative is a significant step in the team’s plan to become a carbon-negative distillery.
