Broker’s Gin celebrates record year

– 75% increase and more duty free listings –

 Broker’s Gin grew by well over 75 per cent in 2010, boosted both by new distributors and by winning one of the industry’s major accolades – the Chairman’s Trophy at the Ultimate Spirits Challenge, New York.

The premium brand saw sales rise to over 21,000 cases (9L equivalent) with the US, Canada, Spain, Russia and Greece taking the lion’s share. 

During the year the company also laid the ground for future expansion by increasing its global footprint to 40 markets and adding duty free listings in Turkey and Southeast Asia.

Having gained 9,000 cases in the last year, Broker’s plans to sell more than 30,000 cases in 2011 and consolidate its position as the world’s third fastest growing premium gin brand (after Bombay Sapphire and Hendrick’s), as announced in the IWSR Drinks Record Dec ‘10/Jan ‘11.

Launched in 1998, Broker’s Gin has succeeded through a combination of word-of-mouth and personal promotion by the owners Andy and Martin Dawson wearing their trademark bowler hats – symbol of its London Dry style and featured on every bottle cap.

The gin itself is made in small batches, five times distilled in a traditional mini-still.  Its flavour and character are based on a classic 200 year old recipe using ten botanicals.

Shepperton, Surrey, England – March 2010

For the fourth year in a row, a small Shepperton-based company, Broker’s Gin Ltd, has snatched the ultimate accolade from under the noses of the gin-making giants.  This latest award is the spirits equivalent of winning an Oscar in Hollywood.

Broker’s London Dry Gin was created in 1998 by brothers Martin and Andy Dawson.  Despite being a small family business, Broker’s Gin continues to knock spots off other well-known brands the world over.  With a score of 97 points out of a possible 100, Broker’s is the first gin awarded the Chairman’s Trophy in the Ultimate Spirits Challenge based in New York.  To win the trophy, Broker’s trumped Tanqueray and Tanqueray Ten, Beefeater and Beefeater 24, Plymouth, Hendrick’s, Citadelle and Citadelle Reserve, and many others.

“Sue and I were delighted that Broker’s wowed the judging panels.” – Founder, Sue Woodley and Judging Chairman, F Paul Pacult – Ultimate Spirits Challenge.

“… a world-class product, and at a price that is not insane.  Broker’s makes a simply superlative gin.” Keith Brant Berube, The Well-Dressed Gentleman.

“This is the best gin I’ve ever had in my life and I’m 61 years old.  I just bought a bottle the other day and I’m ‘converted’.” – Dr David Posner, Rabbi of the world’s largest synagogue, Temple Emanu-El, New York.

Broker’s Gin is handcrafted in the heart of England. Ten classic gin botanicals, sourced from around the world, are distilled with pure wheat spirit in a traditional copper pot-still, named “Constance”. Broker’s Gin is distilled a total of six times using a recipe over 200 years old.
