UK funds new project aiming to incorporating hydrogen into whiskey production


A new consortium has been awarded £2.94 million in funding with the goal of incorporating hydrogen into whiskey production.

The UK Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy will provide the funds to enable the consortium to scale up the hydrogen-based technology and conduct hydrogen trials at Beam Suntory’s Glen Garioch distillery in Aberdeenshire, Scotland.

Over the course of the 21-month project, Supercritical will advance its technology and complete an industrial hydrogen trial at Beam Suntory’s Glen Garioch distillery, producing approximately 57,000 bottles of hydrogen-distilled whisky.

These bottles will be the first hydrogen-fired bottles of whisky produced on a large scale, according to Supercritical, the consortium’s leader.

Supercritical plans to use the funds to more than double the size of its team, resulting in the creation of skilled jobs and the development of expertise in the green hydrogen sector in the United Kingdom.

Valuable supply chain contributions have been identified across the UK, and work with a variety of product and service providers has begun or will begin soon.
