WOW, what a summer we had…
We attended local events all over Warwickshire, the Midlands, and further afield, serving thousands of drinks in the great British sunshine and a few in the rain too!
Some of our highlights were Fawn on the Lawn at The Stag – Off Church, Rockingham Castle Food & Drink Festival and the Common Wealth Games.
It doesn’t stop there… we have a very exciting new rebrand coming and a lemon gin joining the team VERY soon, more on that soon.
We also celebrated our birthday!
Rugby Distillery started off from what seemed like a crazy idea in the throes of lockdown and a period of huge loss as our brother Ian passed away. We felt we needed something positive to move us forward as a family and Rugby Distillery became just this.
On 2nd January 2021 we began to turn a barn into a distillery, and our dream became a reality, then on August 6th 2021 we launched the Rugby Gin range. We started with an unbranded gazebo at Harborough Magna Village Fete and since then we have been to hundreds of events, hosted bars at concerts, festivals and sports games and we are proud to finish our first 12 months at the Commonwealth Games.
The support we have been shown from our local community has blown us away. To all the bars, restaurants, pubs, farm shops, wine shops and local wholesalers who have helped us gain coverage that we needed as a new business, thank you. And to our friends who have helped us out at every turn, who we genuinely wouldn’t have been able to achieve what we have without them, thank you for your kindness and ambition.
From us to you, cheers.
