The fertile fields in southern Sweden are ideal for growing wheat, with yields more than twice as high as the global average. With this efficiency, less land is required for the production of vodka.
We only use hardy winter wheat, sown during the fall, requiring less crop protection. We work with local farmers to reduce usage of fertilizers and evaluate this every year. All of our purchases of crops are made this way, with care for our precious soil and groundwater.
We also contribute to Project Skylark, introducing non-cultivated patches among the farmland. This creates a healthy habitat for wildlife, such as the skylark and other birds, insects and plants.
