Is Sierra an ethical spirits brand?

Owned by German brand BORCO-MARKEN-IMPORT, Sierra is a tequila brand which unfortunately does not reach our minimum Ethical Benchmark within the Ethical Spirits sector.

In spite of its below benchmark score, The Good Shopping Guide still encourages Sierra to get in touch and apply for Ethical Accreditation. After receiving its application, we would be able to evaluate Sierra and give it some advice on how to improve its score so it can become one of our best spirit brands.

Do you want to see how Sierra ranks against other brands within the Ethical Spirits sector? Have a look at the Spirits Ethical Ratings Table. Our Ratings Tables can help you to find out more about the criteria that our top-rated brands have met to achieve reaching our minimum Ethical Benchmark. The Good Shopping Guide encourages all brands to follow the example set by our top-rated brands and introduce more sustainable policies before applying for Ethical Accreditation.

What does Sierra receive a top rating for? 

For the categories of Nuclear Power, Fossil Fuels and Animal Welfare, Sierra receives a top score from The Good Shopping Guide due to its lack of negative ratings.

Does Sierra have an Environmental Report? 

Unfortunately, Sierra does not have an Environmental Report and does not share any sustainable targets. It also has not received Organic or Vegetarian/Vegan certification. As a result, Sierra receives a bottom score in these categories.

What can Sierra do to improve its score? 

Sierra’s low score on The Good Shopping Guide’s Spirits Ethical Ratings Table is the outcome of an evaluation of multiple ethical criteria. To see its score improve on the Spirits Ethical Ratings Table, we recommend that Sierra contact us and apply for Ethical Accreditation. By applying, Sierra would receive some advice on how to boost its bottom scores and become a more ethical brand.
