Slàinte Mhath! Sale Guru's UK Supports Scottish Drinks Brands
Updated: Jun 13, 2022
It's been a successful nine months for the business relationship between Sale Guru's UK and Wild Thyme Spirits, who are now firmly on the menu at drinks wholesalers, restaurants and bars across Scotland.
Wild Thyme Spirits is based in the Southern Hebrides, on the remote island of Colonsay. Their signature spirit, Colonsay Gin is multi-award-winning and is hand crafted using traditional distillery methods. It's best served with premium tonic. The Wild Thyme Spirits range also includes a liqueur, vodka plus a ready-to-drink cocktail.
Sales Guru's UK have worked with Wild Thyme Spirits since August 2021. Our team was initially brought on board to help the drinks brand with on trade support - assisting with the growth of their wholesale drinks sales into on-premise venues such as bars, restaurants, hotels and nightclubs. Since then we have managed to really drive this family owned drinks brand forward, increasing wholesale national distribution throughout Scotland.
We have succeeded in getting Wild Thyme Spirits listed with Inverarity Morton Wholesale, an on trade wholesaler with an extensive drinks portfolio. Founded in 1945, this Scottish drinks merchant sets the bar high; currently distributing over 3,000 drinks products to on-premise venues across Scotland, cementing their reputation at the forefront of the food and beverage industry.
Another success for Sale Guru's UK in the past 9 months involved getting Wild Thyme Spirits on some of the best menus in the area.
The Colonsay Peated Vodka features on the Martini menu in Rabble Edingburgh; the 'Classy yet Casual' bar & restaurant that 'pays homage' to light, fresh and carefree cocktail culture.
"Where we can, we will use local, Scottish products; aiming to give a special mention to new, independent businesses."
The Colonsay Vodka now also appears on the vodka martini menu at Tigerlily, a boutique hotel and restaurant in Edinburgh. Bar Manager Gabriel Cavallera ensures that every member of his bar team has a full understanding of taste & flavour. Using elegant glassware and gorgeous garnishes, they pride themselves on providing a full-on sensory experience when drinking their cocktails.
And finally - we were very pleased when National drinks wholesaler Matthew Clark and Master of Malt, the multi-award winning online spirits retailer, both announced that they were extending their range of Wild Thyme Spirits in 2022. We look forward to continuing to work with this fabulous drinks brand over the coming months.
