Porter’s Gin has confirmed a deal with When We Are Giants to become its UK & Ireland distributor as the brand prepares to expand in its local market.

Porter’s has already distributes to more than 10 international territories including Norway, China, Singapore and France.

Ben Iravani, co-founder of Porter’s commented “We are very excited to be partnering with the Drinksology Group who generate really strong results across their portfolio. When we met, they clearly understood and loved our brand – and there seemed to be a very natural culture fit. We’re hopeful that this is the start of a successful long term partnership that will help grow Porter’s Gin within the UK trade and consumer market.” 

Mike Beavan, sales director of Drinksology Group - When We Are Giants, said: “Porter’s is a young, fresh and forward-thinking brand with great tasting liquid and striking packaging. It ticks all of the boxes and we’re looking forward to offering it to our clients and seeing results.”
