Idea

We founded Cotswolds Distillery in 2013 with the aim of building an appealing 'destination distillery' in one of Britain's most beautiful regions, within reach of the country's largest population centres, producing spirits of the utmost quality, character and authenticity.

With capital from our founder, local investors and a previous crowdfunding round we have built solid foundations for our business: a highly capable distillery, award-winning spirits, including our Cotswolds Dry Gin and Single Malt Whisky, and a stream of thousands of enthusiastic visitors. We now have the capacity to produce 1 million bottles a year to meet future demand, and are recognised as one of the most highly rated craft distilleries in the world. We continue to experience strong growth; our sales increased 75% to £3.1 million for calendar year 2017. By comparison, the UK gin market grew 27% over the same period.

Now we want to make sure our products and brand are reaching the largest possible consumer audience in a busy market, both here and abroad.

With your with your help we aim to:

- Build our brand by accelerating investment in advertising and promotion

- Deepen our sales and distribution network

- Build an inspiring new visitor centre to be our 'brand home'
