Responsible Drinking

Drinking alcohol can be an enjoyable social activity, but it is important to remember to drink responsibly. Swan Knight Distillery is committed to making a significant and sustainable impact on creating a more positive role for alcohol in society. Our goal is to cut alcohol misuse, encourage good behaviour and make responsible drinking a valued and enjoyable part of life. Enjoying our drinks responsibly and in moderation is of key importance to us.

​It is illegal to sell or supply alcohol to individuals under the age of 18 in the United Kingdom. It is also illegal to drive while under the influence of alcohol. It is important to be aware of and abide by the law to ensure the safety of yourself and others.

Treated responsibly, alcohol is associated with enjoyment and celebration. However, it is common knowledge that excessive or inappropriate consumption can cause health and social problems, for both individuals and wider society. It is important to remember to drink responsibly and in moderation. Responsible consumption isn’t just about how much we drink. It is also about how and when we drink, and the impact of our drinking behaviour on others. It includes not drinking at all where the effects of alcohol could put someone else’s safety or health at risk.
