J. C. Ribeiro was proud to collaborate with Scotch Whisky Association (SWA) in the production of the COP 26 limited edition blended Scotch Whisky bottle.
The whisky, which has a run of just 900 bottles, represents the Scotch Whisky industry’s commitment to sustainability from grain to glass, and was presented to world leaders, delegates and visitors to COP 26 climate conference, gathering in Glasgow last November.
To support this initiative we developed an innovative sustainable cork stopper based on the circular economy principal. The Cork-Wood top was produced using cork waste from the cork industry and wood waste from our wood top suppliers making it fully recyclable and environmentally friendly.
DIRECTOR OF BRANDS PACKAGING, EDRINGTON
J.C. RIBEIRO HAS SUPPLIED CORK STOPPERS TO THE MACALLAN FOR MORE THAN THIRTY YEARS. DURING THAT PERIOD, WE HAVE NEVER FAILED TO BE IMPRESSED BY THE HIGHEST STANDARDS OF QUALITY AND SERVICE, AND WE HAVE SOURCED CORKS FOR OUR OTHER BRANDS, SUCH AS HIGHLAND PARK, GLENROTHES, BRUGAL AND NAKED.
THE FACTORY IS A MODEL OF EFFICIENCY AND CLEANLINESS, AND THE WORKFORCE IS CLEARLY COMMITTED TO THE SAME VERY HIGH STANDARDS.
WE LIKE THE FACT THAT CORK IS A NATURAL, SUSTAINABLE MATERIAL, AND THAT J C RIBEIRO CAN TRACK OUR CORKS AT EVERY STAGE FROM THE CORK OAK FOREST TO THE STOPPER WHICH THEY SUPPLY TO US.
THE LABORATORY IS EXTREMELY WELL EQUIPPED, AND THEIR TESTING PROTOCOLS REASSURE US THAT EVERY CORK HAS PASSED THROUGH MULTIPLE QUALITY STEPS TO ENSURE THAT WE CAN ALWAYS RELY ON CONSISTENT PERFORMANCE.
NEW PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT IS A BRILLIANT SERVICE, WHERE NOTHING IS TOO DIFFICULT, WHERE EVERY CHALLENGE IS WELCOMED WITH ENTHUSIASM, AND WHERE CREATIVE AND PROACTIVE DEVELOPMENTS ARE DELIVERED EVERY TIME, ON TIME.
WE LOOK FORWARD TO MANY MORE YEARS OF PARTNERSHIP.
