CRAFT GIN CLUB PARTNERSHIP BENEFITS
The Craft Gin Club was borne of a deep admiration for the passion that you, the independent distiller, place in your spirits. The care you instill in your gin’s production, the story behind your distillery and your tasting objectives are all essential elements of fully enjoying your gin, a fact recognized by select consumers. We connect you with these consumers and, just as importantly, guide newly curious gin drinkers to appreciate your pursuit of perfection.
By partnering with the Craft Gin Club, you gain exposure to the customers that matter while giving them a unique experience with every sip.
During your partnership, you will participate in a highly effective month-long campaign to promote your gin and your brand. In addition to sending your gin to the customers that count, we offer the advantages listed below.
Exclusive content production
CGC Members are both gin enthusiasts and those curious to learn more. In each case, we bring your gin to the drinks lovers most interested in getting to know your brand.
Our journalists get to know you intimately and create a content package that includes stories about your distillery, fun facts about your gin, cocktail recipes, tasting notes and much more.
We strive to make our Members your regular customers after your featured month. We help them to find your points of sale and encourage them to share your gin with their friends and family.
Expand geographic reach
Your gin will be sent to Members in hard-to-reach parts of the UK, regions that you may not otherwise have a chance to visit. Coming soon: international distribution.
We know you want to know what your new customers think. We organize virtual Q&A sessions with our members who love to get to know the makers behind their monthly bottle.
