Cooper King Distillery secures listings with John Lewis, Fenwick and High Life Shop

Cooper King co-founders Chris Jaume and Dr Abbie Neilson

Yorkshire’s Cooper King Distillery is toasting a buoyant 12 months on the back of more prestigious retail listings of its sustainable gins, vodka and liqueur.

The eco-distillery has secured a national listing of its carbon-negative Dry Gin in 19 John Lewis stores and on johnlewis.com. Live since September, the listing has been supported by in-store tasting events in the busiest stores: Cribbs Causeway, Bluewater, Cheadle, Trafford and High Wycombe.

Additionally, luxury department store Selfridges expanded its relationship with Cooper King in 2022, with the creation of a Selfridges x Cooper King Earthly Spirits Gin, a jointly branded venture sitting on the retailer’s popular Project Earth sustainability shelf.

Cooper King has also recently secured an opportunity with British designer department store, Fenwick, to create a range of bespoke premium bottled cocktails, including a Spiced English Apple Martini, which is forecast to sell out ahead of the festivities.

And celebrating its first foray into travel retail, Cooper King now has its renowned Sharing Selection Boxes stocked in High Life Shop. Travellers can pre-purchase the boxes at duty free prices, for delivery straight to their seats on all associated short and long-haul flights.

These latest listings complement the Yorkshire distillery’s ever growing customer list, including Natural History Museum, Ocado and Booths.

Chris Jaume, co-founder, Cooper King Distillery says: “With all the turbulence the world has thrown at us recently, it’s enlightening to take a step back to see how much we’ve achieved.

“Our small and dedicated team is fast-growing and ambitious. We’re competing nationally in a saturated market against much larger producers – with bigger budgets! – but we’ve maintained focus and stayed true to our sustainable principles.

“We’re immensely proud of all we’ve accomplished in the last 12 months and want to thank our loyal customers for choosing to drink sustainably and for supporting a young Yorkshire business.”
