1000 Trades Distillery is a new independent small batch craft distillery, based in Birmingham. The distillery has recently launched with a new signature gin and vodka both made from start to finish in the wonderful city of Birmingham. The distillery also now produces a hand sanitiser in different pack sizes. A sloe gin has just been released for the festive season with a spiced rum following shortly. They also have a number of new brands and collaborations planned for 2021.
1000 Trades is also delighted to announce, alongside Garage Creative, they have won a silver medal in the prestigious Harper’s Wine & Spirit Design awards 2020 for 1000 Trades Gin.
Phil Warren, Founder, experienced in the drinks industry, is responsible for launching a number of new brands into UK on & off trade since opening distribution company Novus in 2009, said.
“2020 has been a hugely successful year for us, we are really proud and delighted to have achieved so many things in such a short period of time. Launching in a global pandemic has not been without its challenges. We have had to adapt how we run the distillery due to the effect’s lockdown restrictions have caused. The design award is a great achievement for the team at 1000 Trades and Garage Creative. It was a zoom driven project – a first for all! The results have been fabulous. We created zesty and spicy gin to reflect the diversity of Birmingham. We wanted the label to sing Birmingham, too. It’s the ‘spirit of our city’ in both name and inspiration”.
He added: “It is important to us to grow roots in our local community and give the trade and consumers of our area a brand and drinks they can relate to. As we expand, we will also be creating jobs in the local community for 2021 and beyond. Our signature blends are available to the trade through local wholesalers Swallow Drinks and Inn Express. They are also available direct to the public through our own online store, as well as Amazon. A number of new products and collaborations are planned for 2021, which will be an even bigger year”.
