What a great year for Club Belmont and Xpresso Martini!

Posted on

Wow what a year this has been for us! This time last year we were just an idea in mixologist Sam Aird’s mind and now we have a brilliant product in multiple stores and on some huge websites.

We started the year with a bang with a wildly successful Crowdfunder campaign

We hit our target easily thanks to fantastic support from a wide community of people and that allowed us to start our first production run.

Whisky Exchange were the first online retailer we struck a deal with it, which worked out great as their main warehouse is a mere mile from where we are based in West London.

Amazon was next, with the online retailing juggernaut listing Xpresso Martini in their beer and wine section.

Of course we weren’t happy with being a purely a “virtual product” and this year we got into some excellent shops like Cheers Lincoln and Art and Craft.

Digbys Clapham and Xpress Clapham are two rail station stores stocking our product, which was always going to be a key market considering the nature of Xpress Martini’s ready to drink convenience.

Club Belmont was greatly honoured to be invited to run a pop up at Fortnum and Mason, probably one of the best known brands worldwide in luxury products. It was an excellent chance to introduce our product personally to the Fortnum and Mason range.

We had a fantastic time at the London Cocktail week, and despite competing against professional mixologists with other many huge brands , we sold out and made a lot of new friends and contacts.

We have some big stuff in the works for early 2019 but you might forgive us for taking a wee break for the holidays.

Merry Christmas everyone.
