Talisker gets sustainable packaging makeover

Diageo Scotch whisky brand Talisker has introduced new sustainable packaging for its 10 Years Old expression.

The packaging makeover has been undertaken as part of Diageo's wider 2030 sustainability action plan, with the wider Talisker portfolio set to follow suit later this year.

The redesign has increased the recyclability of the Talisker 10 Years Old bottle to 99.8 per cent, while the amount of plastic components has been reduced by 86 per cent - including replacing the original plastic stopper with a premium wooden alternative.

It has also reduced the packaging weight by six per cent, which is expected to reduce the total amount of materials used in 2021 by 28 tonnes.

Pranay Chandra, Diageo malt whisky marketing manager, said: "Made on the shores of the Isle of Skye, Talisker is committed to its drive to protect the planet, ensuring our whiskies are produced sustainably. The new packaging will increase the recyclability of the Talisker portfolio significantly and we’re continuously seeking ways to achieve our sustainability goals.

"Consumers are increasingly conscious of their own environmental impact, and we are dedicated to supporting and being a part of this. We understand that there is still more to do, however this is a significant step towards our goals of making all Talisker packaging recyclable by 2030, as well as working towards zero waste across our supply chain."
