We noticed craft distillers are having trouble growing outside their own region.
The cost of getting your drinks in new markets is extremely high.
Transport, insurance, import & export take up around 80% of all costs when working without one of the big distributors.
So why not work with one of the big distributors? Because it is nearly impossible to get them to care about you. Distributors get most of their business from working with the 'big-alcohol' industry, who are not interested in giving away market share to the craft distillers.
This is why most distilleries will never be able to sell their products outside their own regions.
We have a solution.
We cut out the need for transport, import, export and insurance cost.
Instead of shipping your bottles across the world, we have a network of distilleries that can produce your drink for you, locally.
Dramatic cut in transport, import, export, and insurance costs.
Global reach, instead of local reach, in terms of distribution.
