This month we celebrated our fourth birthday.

I looked back at the post I wrote a year ago, going into lockdown with optimism and a sense that it wouldn’t last too long. Little did we know.

It’s a been a tough year on many levels there’s no denying it, and losing the on-trade was a hard knock. However, what I will be taking out of this last year and hopefully remembering in years to come, is how resilient we can be when we have support around us. Thank you to all the people around us who believe in what we are trying to achieve and contribute in so many ways, big and small, obvious and less so.

We are incredibly proud of our small but perfectly formed team. Despite it all, in the last year we’ve managed to keep going, to adapt to drinker’s new ways of buying, to launch a very special limited edition which sold out in a month, and to incubate our beautiful cans that launched earlier this week. Not least, we raised over £5,000 last year for The One Foundation, and whilst we hope to raise much more, we know this is going to make a tangible impact on the other side of the world.

Here’s to the next chapter. We have many plans in the pipeline and I hope – and believe – that our 5th birthday update will be bursting with exciting news.

In the meantime, there is one person we’d like to raise our G&T glasses to, over and above everyone. Thank you to Duncan for his endless support, words of wisdom, guessing which ones were the good days and which ones not so good. The road is much less rocky with you alongside us.
