Summary

Summary: 
A SME from France which manufactures under its own brand craft gin and cold brew is looking for new partners in order to place its products under distribution services agreements.

Description

Description: 

As part of its growth strategy into international markets, the French manufacturer would like to find new distributors for two products : craft gin and cold brew.

Their gin is premium, as made from highest quality French wheat alcohol.

The special flavour of this gin is due to each botanical component (8 among which Croatian Juniper, Spanish Orange Peels and Italian Orris Roots).

Maceration takes place directly in an alembic in an optimum mix of alcohol and water. Slow distillation by flame allows to produce the most aromatic gin. After distillation an essence is added made from local apples to harmonize the gin.

The company managers who are issued from hospitality and sommellerie sectors have also developed their own recipes to drink their gin whether neat, in a cocktail or classic gin and tonic.

Gin bottles are 70 cl. Alcohol content is 40°.

Cold brew, a quality coffee liqueur is the lastest beverage created by the SME further to a recent partnership with a local coffee roaster. A cold infusion and a drop by drop process ensure the maximum flavour is extracted.

The searched partners should be importers with a significant network (wine shops, restaurants, bars, delicatessen...).

E-commerce sales are also possible via their website, but only for individuals.
