Edrington’s Supplier Awards are a yearly highlight in the Spirit Industry calendar, where the premium spirits company’s suppliers are recognised for their performance and support throughout the year.
This year, Ardagh Glass Packaging (AGP)-UK collected the Best Sustainability Supplier of the Year award for its continuous improvement focus on The Macallan single malt Scotch Whisky glass bottle. AGP-UK has supplied the iconic glass bottle for ‘The Macallan’ brand since 2022 and has recently reduced the bottle’s weight by 85g for more sustainable production and transit, while maintaining its high quality.
Lesley Robinson, National Account Manager at AGP-UK, said, ”We use recycled commercial flint glass cullet to produce The Macallan bottle, which lowers carbon emissions. Our colleagues at Edrington have been delighted with the resulting quality and clear colour of the glass, as well as its improved sustainability credentials.”
AGP-UK also collected a gold award in the Supplier Conformance category, which recognises suppliers for their quality performance and customer service throughout the year.
