“We are protecting the land here at Slane, not owning it,” Alex Conyngham, Slane Whiskey

"From providing its own produce for diners at the Gandon Room Restaurant in the castle to drinking whiskey at Browne’s Bar, self-sufficiency and sustainability are key themes that strongly run through the estate’s ethos. We spoke to Alex Conyngham (the Earl of Mount Charles), son of Henry Conyngham (Lord Conyngham), about the farm, distillery, renewable energy and the estate’s impact on the environment." - https://www.fft.ie/we-are-protecting-the-land-here-at-slane-not-owning-it-alex-conyngham-slane-whiskey/28520
