Return your Envy bottles back to us!

Return your Envy bottles back to us!

Victoria’s Container Deposit Scheme (CDS Vic) is live. The scheme rewards Victorians with a 10 cent refund for every eligible can, carton and bottle they return. 

Envy Distilling, as a supplier of bottled spirits, is a "First Supplier" - that is, the manufacturer and packaging part. However, the Container Deposit Scheme currently does not include bottles used for spirits, such as our award-winning gin. That's a shame, because we care deeply about our sustainability story, minimising our impact, and ensuring a better future through the Circular Economy and environmental responsibility.

Our customers love our bottles, and so do we. They are beautiful, robust, and very reusable.  And they cost much more than 10 cents!!  So, we're doing one better.

Any customer that brings back an empty Envy Distilling 700ml bottle to our distillery door, in reusable condition, will receive $5 off their purchase of a replacement 700ml bottle of spirits. You get an extra $2.50 for each additional one you bring - or if you just bring one back without making a new purchase.


  • Tom visits us to buy a new bottle of gin, bringing his previous empty bottle.  He gets $5 off.
  • Fiona visits us to buy a new bottle of gin, and brings three empty bottles. She gets $10 off ($5 + $2.50 + $2.50)
  • Duncan drops by, bringing his previous empty Envy Distilling bottle but doesn't buy a new bottle. He gets $2.50 cash.

We're serious about reducing our impact on the world, and also want to ensure our customers are encouraged to come see us again! Together, we can always do better, and we look forward to handing out lots of returned bottle deposits!
