But in order to truly be a product of high-quality, it isn't just the raw ingredients or time-perfected processes that matters — increasingly important is how companies and brands put systems in place to ensure limited environmental impact of production, while creating sustainable practices at distilleries across the world. John McDonnell, COO of Patrón Spirits International, makers of Patrón tequila and other ultra-premium spirits, will discuss some of the industry-leading, high-investment technology and methods at his company's distillery in Mexico, and present examples of other spirits companies that are committed to this important issue.
