Producer's Policy Statement.
Knockeen Hills supports both the Portman Group's code of practice and the Drink Aware policies on alcoholic drinks.
The Producer of Knockeen Hills Heather 'London Cut' Dry Gin encourages the consumption of alcohol in moderation. As part of this policy implemented at the commencement of the production of the Knockeen Hills Brand labels in 1996, it has as a producer, always declined to directly advertise its products in the media, or the medium of 'advertorials' or provide free stock and remains committed to these policies.
It will also not supply brands free of charge or at discounted prices as a marketing tool. A further example of the commitment to this policy, is that where the Producer is advised that any outlet dispenses a Knockeen Hills Brand at a discounted price or allows it to be sold as 'shooters', which could encourage excess consumption, then every reasonable effort will be made to cease further supplying that outlet.
Environmental Protection Policy
To preserve the earth's finite resources, no unnecessary packaging is used, such as metal tubes or casings commonly used to make the product more attractive. Also, paper product catalogues which would require regulally updating are not produced.
