Brockmans Gin secures first Ocado listing
Brockmans Gin has secured a listing with Ocado as the consumer interest in super premium gins continues.
Brockmans picked up a listing with the Co-op towards the end of last year and it is also stocked by Marks & Spencer, Harvey Nicholls and Asda.
The super-premium gin, which is now also available in 40 countries, celebrated its tenth anniversary last October. At the time it announced revenue up 35% year-on-year to £4.7 million. In the UK revenue is up 90%.
The gin is made using berries and botanicals sourced from across the world: juniper from Italy; lemon peel from Murcia in Spain; bitter-sweet orange peel from Valencia; Bulgarian coriander seed; cassia bark from Indo-China; blueberries and blackberries from Northern Europe; liquorice from China, angelica from Belgium; bitter almonds form Spain; and Italian orris root.
Gary Hyde, Senior Purchasing Manager at Ocado, said: "Brockmans Gin, with its unique blend of botanicals and smooth taste, justifies its position within our premium range of spirits.”
Elliott Clark of Indie Brands, Brockmans' UK Distributor, said: "Brockmans is already stocked by a number of major multiples and it is good to be able to bring this gin to customers of such an important online delivery grocer. Although Ocado already lists well over 100 gin labels, this - the ‘gin like no other' - still manages to add an important new offering to the portfolio for Ocado customers due to its distinctive taste profile and packaging."
