London Distillery Company appoints GB distributor
Dodd’s Gin producer The London Distillery Company (TLDC) has appointed Boutique Bar Brands as its exclusive distributor for Great Britain.
The partnership will be effective immediately, with a “phased transition” for some customers over the coming months.
TLDC chief executive Killian O’Sullivan said: “We’ve met with many of the UK-based distributors and while many of them do a great job, it was key for us that we find a partner who shared our values regarding spirits education, inspiring bartenders and who wanted to take our range of spirits to consumers beyond London. Doing this at pace and at scale is not something that we could deliver in house.”
O’Sullivan added that TLDC had “taken the time to find” a distributor that “understands” how to address the challenges of the “demanding” GB market.
The TLDC range is currently available in premium on-trade and off-trade accounts in London, but the company is now seeking its “next phase of growth”.
The group recently signed new deals to export its products to Hong Kong and Macau.
