Maxxium takes on luxury gin

16 May, 2011

Maxxium UK will take over distribution of No 3 London Dry Gin from June 1.

The gin is currently handled in the UK by Inspirit Brands. It is owned by Berry Bros & Rudd, whose malt whisky brand, The Glenrothes, is already distributed by Maxxium UK.

Maxxium said No 3 will be positioned at the top of the super-premium gin category and is targeted at the luxury end of the on and off-trade.

The product is made in traditional copper pot stills with three fruits and three spices.

Maxxium UK managing director Huw Pennell said: “We are delighted to strengthen our relationship with Berry Bros & Rudd with the addition of No. 3 London Dry Gin, a perfect strategic fit for Maxxium UK.”

Wine is a liquid time capsule. Drinking older vintages not only recalls the weather conditions and winemaking styles of the past, it encourages us to reflect upon our own histories. Such reminiscence often inclines towards romanticised nostalgia. Especially after the second bottle. But looking back is a great way of learning about the future.
