Burleighs Gin almost doubles £250k investment target

English brand Burleighs Gin almost doubled its £250,000 (US$322,425) crowdfunding target to raise just under £500,000 (US$644,850) worth of investment in one month.

The month-long fundraiser on Crowdcube received more than 291 investments ranging from £10 to £250,000.

Burleighs Gin will use the funds to accelerate its global plans, expand the company’s staff numbers and establish the brand in the US and Asia.

Matt Payne, managing director, said: “Crowdfunding has been an excellent opportunity for us to connect even closer with our loyal customers.

“Our achievements have always been driven by the end consumer and we are excited to share in our future success with those who decided to invest.”

Distilled in Burleigh, England, Burleighs recently launched Marilyn Monroe Pink Gin.
