Well its less than two weeks to go until Christmas Day and our elves have been very busy making up our remaining orders for the Gin Gift Sets. My house is feeling very festive this year, I have gone beyond the elegance of nice trees and lights we have straw everywhere thanks to the gift sets!! It seems every day more straw appears, in every Christmas gift I have wrapped there is evidence of straw. I really have taken the festive theme to a new level creating a stable in my house !!
We had a great time visiting all of the Christmas Fayre's, with one to go its easy for me to regard them as a success. Its been great to advertise the business and let people know who we are and also be able to offer a variety of drinks to bring new ideas to peoples gin drinking. We've made many friends at the events and hopefully have formed future business partnerships whilst doing so. It was great to meet everyone!
We have just one Faure left this Sunday at the depot, for this event we will not be offering the full bar service although we will be offering our gift sets and individual bottles of gin. If you're in the are come and say hello, there are some amazing business at this event. Finish...or start your Christmas shopping at the Depot this Sunday.
The word is definitely out that the Gin Tin is about. We've had a great interest from a number of distillers that are interested in working with us in a variety of ways, potentially some very exciting times ahead. Unfortunately some of the discussions are still confidential but will be shouted from the roof-tops should they materialise. Watch this space!
Since announcing the business there has been a massive amount of support from friends and old work colleagues, its truly appreciated. I loved being told by a potential customer that they were in a hairdressers having their hair done discussing with their hair stylist that they were contacting me and another member of staff piped up to say The Gin Tin was her friends business. I loved being the gossip of the salon!!
We have had more enquiries for events next year and a few confirmed bookings, hopefully by the end of January we will have next year all wrapped. If you are considering a date get in touch soon, there are pencilled dates in my diary, first one to make a deposit will secure the date.
So, roll on Christmas, The Gin Tin has had a great start so far, we are already above the expected target that was set, now lets move on to exceeding the first quarter of next year! Woohoo for The Gin Tin!!
Merry Christmas to all, thank you to everyone for your support, it is all very much appreciated.
