BDCo has already supplied some of the biggest names in retail (Majestic, Lidl) and the on-trade (170+ site Loungers Group) and is now seeking to invest in their tap room and double barrel whiskey programme.

  • Proven ability to sell at scale (Lidl, Majestic)
  • First batch of double barrel whiskey available in October 2021
  • Supplier to multisite operators, including 170+ bars in the Loungers group
  • 150+ cover tap room set to capitalise on summer 2021 trading

Idea

In an industry bloated with ‘heritage this’ and ‘tradition, that’, we think there’s room for a brand like us. A brand that sets itself apart in how it thinks, the way it goes about things, the drinks it creates, and how it expresses itself. We are a distilling company that creates award winning drinks across categories and embraces a passion for craft whilst being able to deliver at scale.

We began trading in 2018 having installed at our Bristol home a 500L copper pot still handmade for us in Lincoln, Nebraska. In our first full year of trading we made net sales of just over £600k (EBITDA -£21.6k). Our second full year was 2020 and despite the challenges we were able to grow this by 20% to £723k (EBITDA -£45.3k). We have already achieved major national listings in the off-trade as well as relationships with local independently owned friends such as Left Handed Giant in the on-trade. Most recently we've begun supplying over 170 bars in the Bristol-founded Loungers group.

We now plan to invest in two big things: our double barrel whiskey program (first casks maturing Oct 2021), and our tap room (proven revenue of £200k+ in the 4 months we were able to open in 2020). We will also continue to develop innovative brands that can work at scale in both the on and off trade and work with a whole range of customers at both a local and national level.
