Here at Brindle Distillery we get many requests to promote with local businesses, it is such a great feeling to be partnering with other like minded businesses and drive the local economy. This last month we got an opportunity to test drive the MINI Electric from Bowker BMW.

Teaming up with a local company like Bowker Motor Group was a great privilege, to do it because of our shared sustainable principles was the icing on the cake. At Brindle Distillery we live by our tag line, ‘Inspired by the past, dedicated to the future’. The past harking back to times and farming stories that created our brand name Cuckoo Gin. We also like to focus on everything that the Holmes Farm has been through and how it has evolved over time. Much like the motor industry!

Being custodians of the land, we have to be dedicated to the future. We make use of the land on the farm to create a product that in turn builds the local economy, creates jobs and tourism for the local area. We strive to be sustainable and green in all aspects of our product production, from using biomass to heat our still, using our own water in production and spreading waste back on our land.

Part of our long term goal includes using electric transport to ship our products and meet customers out on the road. Bowker have introduced us to this technology, and we are massively impressed with the performance of the MINI electric and the range from just one charge. Ideal for both quick drops offs in and around Lancashire towns and villages along with trips our to meet our trade customers on the road. We hope this is the start of a great partnership together.
