The Way Forward
We live in a world of limited resources and intense industrial impacts. Sure we’re having fun making our spirits, but we also keep our eyes open to the externalities of our production.
When you open a bottle of Bluewater spirits, you set in motion a number of positive effects:
- You show your support for organic agriculture, meaning no GMO’s or chemical pesticides.
- You support in-sourced manufacturing jobs with our American-made bottles.
- As a member of 1% for the Planet, you contribute to a range of effective environmental and social organizations.
- You support a community-focused independent business.
Bluewater is certified organic by the Washington State Department of Agriculture, covering all aspects of our operation. We are proud to support agriculture which is cultivated without chemical pesticides, synthetic fertilizers or genetic engineering. Organic farmed land is simply better for the environment as well as the people who work in the fields.
Our spirits are Proudly Bottled in American Glass, providing support for domestic industries while minimizing transportation impacts brought on by overseas shipping. With an entire industry choosing cheaper imported glass, we choose to insource. Look for our American Glass icon, emblazoned on all our bottles.
