Kinsale Spirit Company has celebrated the milestone of selling 100,000 bottles of its gin at Bradley’s Specialist Off-Licence and Foodstore, North Main Street, Cork.
The 100,000th bottle was purchased by Claire McLaughlin from Blackrock. Claire said: “I am thrilled to be the person who bought the 100,000th bottle. I have loved Kinsale Gin from the very start so it was such a lovely surprise to be part of this monumental moment for the brand, and of course Bradley’s too!”
As a thank you, Kinsale Spirit Co., are treating Claire to a weekend away, in Kinsale, where she will be spoiled with some of the things that makes Kinsale so special to them – a meal from Fishy Fishy, chocolates from Koko’s, and the small batch premium Kinsale Gin.
Michael Creedon of Bradley’s said: “we are delighted to have sold the 100,000th bottle of this fine drink, back here where it’s story all began. In 2016 we put the first 100 bottles of Kinsale Gin on shelf, and it sold out within a week. It’s important to us to stock the very best quality produce from the Cork region – a gin distilled using botanicals hand-picked around Kinsale? You can’t beat it.”
Ernest Cantillon of Kinsale Spirit added: “I’m sure some of the other brands sell a lot higher quantities, but for us this was a very big deal. Our thanks to Michael, Claire, and to all of our customers for the support in getting us here.”
Kinsale Spirit Co., look to be producing 300,000 bottles per annum, producing Irish Whiskey, Gin, and other spirits in time.
