Newcastle-based premium alcohol gifting business The Gin & Rum Warehouse is aiming to double the million pound turnover it has achieved in its first year and create more than a dozen new jobs after moving into larger premises.
The Gin & Rum Warehouse began trading in March 2020 as a bottle delivery business in Gosforth and quickly added personalised gift sets to its offering.
It now offers a range of gins, rums and vodkas, as well as a growing number of smaller boutique and emerging British brands, and has so far sent out around 25,000 gift sets to customers across the UK.
Having initially taken a small warehouse in Newcastle to manage growing demand, the Gin & Rum Warehouse is now trading up to a new 7,000sqft facility on the New York Industrial Estate in North Tyneside.
Up to 14 new jobs are expected to be created while the business is also set to launch on the UK’s leading platform for independent retailers, Not On The High Street.
