There is still time to invest in UK distillers, Burleighs Gin, as funding eclipses their £100,000 investment target!
The business currently valued at £2.3 million has received over 120 investments during their Seedrs crowdfunding raise, varying from £10.00 to £50,000+. The campaign is set to run for a further three weeks and the business is calling on further investors to join the current raise.
Burleighs now plan to diversify their portfolio with the invested funds. Development plans include the introduction of a non-alcoholic gin, allowing entry to the rapidly rising ‘low & no’ growth sector, with further plans for a ‘Ready to Drink’ gin & tonic to be launched in 2021.
Commercial Director, Sam Watson, is delighted by the success of the campaign “Despite the impact of Covid, 2020 has been a year of great progression for Burleighs Gin. The success of our crowdfunding campaign with Seedrs will now allow us to further drive our growth and progress with a number of exciting projects”
Distilled in the heart of England, Burleighs, has successfully established itself in the highly competitive gin market over the last five years with a unique collaborative strategy. Current partners include Leicester City FC, Leicester Tigers RFC and the Marilyn Monroe estate.
Their collaboration partners have this week been expanded as the business launches the official Poppy Gin, in partnership with the Royal British Legion. A limited number of bottles can be purchased directly from www.poppyshop.org.uk
Burleighs are now backing themselves to become a household name in the gin market, with the investment campaign marking an important milestone in the business’ growth.
