Hello and welcome to The Gin Venture!
I guess you’re wondering what we are all about. We are The Gin Venture, we are here to change how the world sees the gin industry!
How are we going to do this?
Are you tired of going to the supermarket and seeing the same old gins on the shelf with the standard brand labels? We certainly are! So to conquer this, we are planning on mixing it up. With our subscription service you will get a bespoke distilled gin each month, two months or quarterly from our master distiller, Lewis, featuring a custom designed label from our talented artists, Alex and Lydia.
Love our flavours or not, don’t worry we are SOCIAL. This is a joint venture between us and our subscribers, so give us suggestions on email, Facebook or Instagram and we can put it to a vote involving all our Gin Venturists (that’s you!). If they like it, we can make it happen. This is not only for flavours but for your own label designs too.
So how did The Gin Venture start you may ask? It all started well over a year ago as an off the cuff conversation between Patrick and Lewis after a fair few gins at their friend’s stag do. They both wanted to bring their specialities to the table, Patrick with his business acumen and Lewis with his award winning distillery – not to mention their shared love for gin! As you all know, drunken conversations often get forgotten about, until one Christmas when they were both exchanging messages, the collaboration was sealed with “that gin thing, you still up for it?”.
From then on we tried numerous iterations of ideas that would work, which included a customise your own gin site (customiseyourdrink.com), which actually got pretty close to launching. But after numerous calls and debates, we decided to focus on the art of gin and what we like about it, what drives someone to pick a gin at the bar (the label) and experimenting with interesting flavours.
After a poll for name choices, Patrick started ‘The Gin Venture’, which collaborated with Lewis’s company, ‘Distillutions’. Unfortunately Patrick and Lewis aren’t too talented in the graphics design department, so here comes Alex and Lydia and The Gin Venture collaboration with ‘Alex and Us Designs’. On seeing the original and stunning designs Alex and Lydia have done on their website, Instagram and products including cards, prints and wedding invitations, there was no question about who Patrick wanted to design The Gin Venture labels.
And there you have it, a year later, we are here.
Gin just got social.
