BOUTIQUE spirit Caorunn, distilled in the Balmenach Distillery on Speyside, is now the second-biggest super-premium gin in the UK.
Figures just released from the International Wine and Spirits Report, for sales in 2013, show Caorunn has overtaken Tanqueray Number 10, moving up the ranks from third best seller in 2012.
Caorunn Gin global brand manager, Ibolya Bakos-Tonner, commented: “Our new status as the second biggest super premium gin in the UK is a major stepping stone for Caorunn Gin and a huge success considering the competitive category and great investments of larger brands.
“It is a very exciting time for Caorunn Gin and we look forward to further expanding distribution in the UK and increasing penetration globally.”
Caorunn Gin is listed by Waitrose, Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Harvey Nichols, Fortnum and Mason, Oddbins, The Conran Shop, Spirited Wines, The Whisky Shop and specialist delicatessens and spirit stores.
The RRP is £28.49.
