Since 1988, "Respectfully, with Mother Nature and on her behalf… "
Nature is a way of life and our production methods are based on this core value. Through the years, for our own needs, we have implemented very efficient ecological solutions, such as the rainwater collection and the Canadian well that tempers and ventilates our installations. Since 2012, we have also been experimenting with "compost-thermia" and litter flush dry toilets, as promising solutions based on the valorization of our distillery’s residue, muka, or any other biomass. We now wish to share these problem-solving experiments through a project called the "Circular Habitat", launched in 2014.
Everyone must remember: Nature never produces waste, only resources for all creatures.
