Our international drinks business owns an exciting portfolio of outstanding heritage brands and trademarks that we are rejuvenating back to market.
The range of premium brands we have acquired are steeped with history and tradition (some dating all of the way back to the 1820s) - authentic, familiar brands, each with a story to tell.
After the success of our first product, Horse Guards Gin, we are working through our portfolio, bringing each high-end brand back to life efficiently, effectively and in a way that resonates with consumers.
Innovatus Drinks has already built a prestigious UK customer base and is exporting to Abu Dhabi, France, Italy, Sri Lanka, Spain and Austria. We own the unique recipe for all our products. Now, we’re looking to expand even further.
With already 3 brands launched, and two new brands purchased, in the coming months, we expect to bring 3 new brands to market for Whiskey, Vodka and Mescal.
We already launched our 'Ready to Drink' cocktails and these have been an immediate hit and one of our our fastest selling products. The convenience and portability of the pre mixed drinks means barriers are removed for consumption environments.
Innovatus Drinks is disrupting the way that multi-brand businesses work. We use an agile business model, allowing us to rapidly bring our brands to market. Despite the quick turnaround, we ensure a premium process is in place for our high-end brands.
Using our extensive experience as a core team, with essential support from our advisors and smart outsourcing wherever possible, we are able to provide all of the marketing support and respond quickly to consumer demands and market conditions. And we always ensure that the consumer comes first – every step of the way.
