Image(s) of the Day: Belgrove Distillery, Kempton, Tasmania, Australia

Since today is Earth Day, we thought it would be appropriate to include a shot of the man behind Tasmania’s Belgrove Distillery, Peter Bignell. Belgrove, best known for its rye, is what Bignell calls not a carbon-neutral distillery, but a carbon-negative one. Bignell fuels the completely grain-to-grass operation with biodiesel derived from used cooking oil. In the top photo, Bignell shows off his home-made still, which the biodiesel powers. Below is a look at the idyllic farm on which the distillery is situated. The fields produce the grain for Belgrove’s spirits.
