New Option for UK Distillers to Sell Direct to Consumer


Feb 04, 2013

Dominic Roskrow, Director of Craft Distillers’ Alliance, in the UK, informed us this week about a new initiative benefiting small, independent UK whisky producers, allowing them to sell even a single bottle of whisky directly to British consumer and trade customers.

The project was launched by Glasgow-based Bondeau, a storage, logistics and distribution company, in association with Roskrow, providing an alternative route for the UK market, including extensive bonded warehouse space, full transport and distribution facilities, even a marketing, PR and events service for organizing tastings, launches, events. Roskrow explains that a key “win” of this launch is, “that the lion’s share of the income generated from sales goes back to the distiller.”
