Roner was the first distillery in Italy to have an environmentally friendly, low-emission steam boiler system installed. This burns the waste that is leftover from distillation, such as drained fruit pomace or apricot stones, for example, and converts it into clean energy.
At Roner, the processes of distilling, filling and heating are carried out using renewable energy. Only water vapour is emitted from our chimney, posing no threat to the environment.
The water used at Roner comes from the company's own cisterns. The utmost care is taken when it comes to water usage.
To save energy, the company's headquarters were built in line with eco-friendly regulations.
The preservation and respect for the environment has entertained another issue in recent years: biodiversity.
The logic of the market is leading to the disappearance of many rare and traditional fruits. The traditional Gravenstein apple variety, quince, rowan berries and elderberries, for example, are getting harder and harder to find. They are being superseded by others for which demand is greater, which grow more easily and are thus more profitable.
At Roner, we are always on the lookout for these types of fruit and encourage anything that supports biodiversity and the continued cultivation of them. Otherwise these precious, traditional flavours are in danger of being lost for good. Losing the taste and smell of our home is, in our opinion, something we simply cannot allow.
Finding these rare fruits has literally become so difficult that we now grow some of our own; Gravenstein apples in particular. Hence we can preserve the diversity of tastes and aromas and prevent these plants and fruits from disappearing altogether.
