Hi-Spirits takes on UK distribution for Toorank’s Sloane’s Gin
Sloane’s Gin is now available across the UK through the distributor Hi-Spirits following a newly agreed partnership between the distributor and Dutch spirits producer Toorank.
The agreement covers distribution of all Toorank brands in the UK and Ireland. This includes private label spirits, challenger brands supplied to major retailers and the independent off-trade, and premium brands, including Sloane’s Gin.
Dan Bolton, managing director of Hi-Spirits, said: “Drawing on Toorank’s expertise in the production of high quality liquid and their supply chain flexibility, we will be able to explore private label opportunities with key on-trade groups.”
Toon Blij, Toorank CEO and owner, said: “We are delighted to be working with Hi-Spirits in the UK and Ireland, our most important markets. When we decided to switch our distributor, we challenged ourselves to create a genuine partnership, and Hi-Spirits matched our stringent criteria. Together, we can get closer to our customers and grow the business for mutual benefit.”
A family owned business based in Zevenaar in Holland, Toorank operates a state of the art production facility in Holland with a further distillery in Poland, and has bottling capacity of 80 million bottles per annum.
