Charitable giving is at the heart of life in the Distillers’ Company. The Distillers’ Charity (no. 1038763) was established in 1955 to carry forward the Livery’s philanthropic work.
To make a difference to young people, including those within the distilled spirits trade, helping them to reach their full potential, improve their life chances, and make a positive contribution to their communities.
To support organisations working in the field of vocational training, alcohol education, and other drinks industry and Livery-related charitable causes. Our work is currently focused on four areas:
- Vocational training: to provide support and education to assist promising, young entrants to the UK spirits trade to develop their knowledge and skills and encourage high standards of distilling practice and service.
- Alcohol-related education: to help young people to enter adulthood having a healthy relationship with alcohol and mitigate potential harm caused by drinking.
- Past or current members of the drinks industry: to address the needs of those suffering mental health issues or hardship.
- The Master’s, The Lord Mayor’s and other Livery-related charities: to support the Master’s charity of the year and the Lord Mayor’s Appeal.
