Bernheim Distillery recognized with superior energy performance

We are excited to share that two Heaven Hill Brands facilities have received the EPA’s first-ever ENERGY STAR certification for distilleries in recognition of superior energy efficiency and performance. Our company’s historic Bernheim Distillery in Louisville, Kentucky and Deep Eddy Vodka Distillery in Buda, Texas were both awarded.

Cultivating sustainable and thriving communities is important for our employees, our partners, and our neighbors. Our company’s energy efficiency programs improve community resilience by reducing emissions and lessening the load on the area’s energy infrastructure.

Distilleries recognized by the EPA earned a score of 75 or higher using the ENERGY STAR’s Energy Performance Indicator (EPI) which facilities can use to benchmark their performance on a scale of 1-100.  We are honored to receive this certification from the EPA as it recognizes our commitment to innovation in utilizing energy and responsibly using all the natural resources that support our business.

Heaven Hill has implemented a variety of projects over recent years, including completion of multiple boiler efficiency and insulation projects to reduce energy needs, replacement of light fixtures with more efficient LED bulbs, and tree plantings around our facilities. These are all crucial steps in our company’s larger environmental and sustainability strategy. Over the course of the next decade, both corporate and branded initiatives will continue to be announced to support our goals as the long-term vision takes shape.
