Teerenpeli Distillery is one of the oldest Nordic distilleries established in 2002. Thanks to its own wood pellet power plant, the calculated carbon foot print of Teerenpeli Brewery & Distillery is only about 10 % compared to using natural gas or oil on its production. As part of the sustainability actions, the single malt whiskies are matured in former sea containers at the distillery. Read more about the sustainability actions at Teerenpeli Distillery here.
