How MVR technology paves the way for reaching carbon neutral distillation

Chivas Brothers, the Scotch whisky business of Pernod Ricard, is working to achieve carbon neutral distillation by 2026. To reach this industry-leading target, the implementation of enhanced heat recovery technologies is key. For both upgrading existing and equipping new plants, Chivas Brothers relied on PILLER VapoFans, which in a vapor compression heat pump system, delivered a COP of 12 in this project.

Chivas Brothers is the Scotch whisky business of Pernod Ricard. Chivas Brothers’ award-winning portfolio features some of the world’s most revered Scotch whisky brands including Chivas Regal, Ballantine’s, Royal Salute, Aberlour and The Glenlivet, comprising 13 whisky distilleries, one bottling facility and more than 300 warehouses across Scotland. As both a traditional and a future-oriented company, the Scotch whisky experts work towards the goal of producing "sustainable Scotch" and are therefore taking appropriate steps along their entire value chain.

In line with Pernod Ricard’s 2030 Sustainability and Responsibility roadmap, this includes the elimination of waste and reducing carbon emissions in the growing of natural ingredients, packaging and transportation – as well as transforming the distillation process. In this area, Chivas Brothers has set an industry-leading target of carbon neutrality by 2026.
