Laphroaig whisky owner moves to restore Scottish peatlands

THE company behind the Laphroaig and Bowmore whisky brands this week unveiled a plan to restore Scottish peatlands.

Beam Suntory has entered a partnership to restore peatlands in Ayrshire as it works towards the conservation of the equivalent amount of peat used to make its single Islay malts.

The partnership between Beam Suntory and the conservation organisation the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds is part of the Peatland Water Sanctuary initiative, a £3.5m conservation project launched in 2021.

Beam Suntory will provide £385,000 of funding to restore and regenerate peatland at the Airds Moss reserve in East Ayrshire.

The work will take place over four years covering approximately 160 hectares of land owned by RSPB Scotland.
