The International Alliance for Responsible Drinking (IARD) is delighted to announce global premium spirits business William Grant & Sons as a new member.
William Grant & Sons join 11 of the world’s leading beer, wine, and spirits producers, who have come together to combat harmful drinking and set new standards of responsibility for their wider industry.
Welcoming William Grant & Sons, IARD CEO and President Henry Ashworth said:
“We are delighted that William Grant & Sons has joined IARD. As a family owned business founded in 1887, they place long-term thinking and sustainability at the heart of all they do. These values, alongside a commitment to tackling harmful drinking, are shared amongst all IARD members.

IARD is keen to work with other producers, private and public sector organizations and communities to help move from a shared agenda to shared solutions on harmful drinking.”
