Two Drifters Distillery Ltd

Status: Active

Nov 9th 2020 - Dec 9th 2020

Two Drifters Distillery (TDD) is one of the very few British distilleries that makes rum from raw ingredients, rather than importing and flavouring it. It has worked with Climeworks Direct Air Capture technology to remove CO2 from its products. The company's technique won admirers leading to a boost in sales. Since its launch in 2019, TDD converted existing equipment to increase capacity from 80 bottles per week to an estimated 1800 per week. It has also secured contracts from prominent entities including John Lewis (national and online), Exeter Chiefs Rum and Virgin Wines. The company has an active social media community with 10,000+ followers and also conducts weekly distillery tours that see full attendance from its customers. TDD has also received press coverage from media houses including The BBC, The Telegraph and The Independent. It will use the investment to grow its sales and showcase its product at retail outlets, and bring to the masses sustainably-made British products.
