Made with sustainability in mind, Two Drifters was brought to life by husband and wife team Russ and Gemma. Their distillery is based just 12 miles west of THE PIG-at Combe, Devon, in an aircraft-style hangar near Exeter Airport. Two Drifters makes their rum using raw ingredients, a small number of British distilleries make rum this way. Before they focused solely on rum, the distillery was also a brewery for their own beer, but after an overwhelming demand for Two Drifters, they decided to convert all the brewery equipment to make even more rum!

Russ’ background before setting his sights on the rum world, was in Chemistry - researching carbon capture, storage and utilisation, trying to make CO2 have value. The duo harnessed their expertise and creativity to develop a rum that avoids making CO2 where possible and considers all aspects of the rum making process to be more environmentally friendly. 

B-Corp certified, carbon reducing trailblazers, Two Drifters' distillery is electric and runs on 100% renewable energy, they have electric vehicles, carbon neutral packing and courier, sustainable merchandise, and their new bottle design creates significantly less CO2! Add all this together and it means that each bottle of Two Drifters saves over 1kg of CO2 from contributing to global warming.

There are some areas where Two Drifters can’t avoid CO2, but the team are always looking for a more sustainable alternative. To help combat the unavoidable carbon, they physically remove it with their partners Climeworks where they work together to remove more carbon from the atmosphere than their entire footprint creates, to give Two Drifters a negative footprint and in turn, carbon negative rum!

It's a voyage towards sustainability that we for one, can get behind.
