Sustainable Spirits Packaging and Distribution with ecoSPIRITS

The latest episode of “Paris Cocktail Talk”

On this mont’s episode of “Paris Cocktail Talk” we learn how ecoSPIRITS is reducing single glass use in the spirits industry with the world’s first low carbon, low waste, closed loop spirits distribution technology, and the challenges and successes of changing industry standards and practices around alcohol storage and packaging with our guest Constance Moreau-Luchaire of la Maison du Whisky. Constance also shares some of the alcohol brands and bars that are embracing this more environmentally friendly technology so we can support the businesses that are making better ecological choices.

About our topic and guest:

Constance Moreau-Luchaire, Marketing Manager and Strategic Project Leader at La Maison du Whisky is a true wine enthusiast with triple expertise: business development and strategic marketing skills acquired at BCG, knowledge of the world of wines and spirits, both strategic and operational, which she has acquired and strengthened over the past ten years, and a strong scientific background with a doctorate in physics.

ecoSPIRITS is an innovative closed-loop distribution system that nearly eliminates packaging waste in the premium spirits supply chain. By dramatically reducing packaging and transport costs, ecoSPIRITS provides both a powerful cost advantage and a transformative carbon footprint reduction.
