Monday April 22nd is Earth Day, an annual day created to demonstrate support for environmental protection. While millions of people from all over the world participate in activities and events to make a difference on this one specific day, American Harvest goes beyond Earth Day and supports the environment each and every day.

Here’s how:

Sustainable agriculture: The producers of American Harvest support sustainable agriculture by using organic materials and an organic production process.

Wind power: The American Harvest Distillery supports renewable energy. One-third of the monthly electrical consumption at the distillery comes from local wind generated power. Additionally, unused materials from the distillation process are used as cattle feed along with most of the water.

Recyclable glass: The American Harvest bottle manufacturer is dedicated to a sustainable development approach and to preserving natural resources through the efficient use of raw materials, water and energy. American Harvest bottles are 100% recyclable and are coated and decorated with organic inks and water-soluble varnishes.

In celebration of Earth Day (and every day), raise a glass to the environment and enjoy these eco-friendly cocktails from American Harvest:
