Description

Description: 

This UK based company has been producing hand-crafted gin and other gin products with special emphasis on customer tastes saw them move to develop different flavours. What began as a hobby for the company's owner has now turned into a full time job and trading company. This company has now been trading successfully for the past few years and is looking at expanding the business.

The company predominantly creates three different types of gin. A recreation of a once famous gin back in the 1890's and two premium flavoured alcoholic drinks made from gin. The two flavours are rose petals and parma violets. However other products include a sweeter version and a stronger alcoholic percentage gin. The packaging of these products are dependant on the type of gin and its backstory allowing a more unique experience.
