A Yorkshire based spirit company are celebrating their 10th year in business by launching two new products along with a whole new look.
The Little Red Berry Co, based at Ripon in North Yorkshire launched back in 2011 with a passion for creating great tasting spirits using locally grown and foraged ingredients.
Since it’s creation, the award-winning company, who launched the range with their first product, Raspberry Gin Liqueur, has changed hands and the new owners have set about updating the company’s look as well as developing some exciting new flavours.
Bought by Noel Johnson in August 2020 from the original owners, the company is now run by the Johnson family who have been working on developing the brand over recent months including major rebrand which has seen the creation of new bottles and labels to reflect their proud Yorkshire heritage.
Bethany Johnson, Manager of Operations at The Little Red Berry Co said: “We approached by an agent selling the LRB back in 2019 and arranged a visit to have a look round. We knew straight away that we wanted to inject new life into what was already a fantastic, award-winning Yorkshire company that had appeal and personality and just needed someone to give it a push.”
Using locally sourced ingredients and working closely with regional growers and producers, The Little Red Berry Co have expanded their range over the last decade picking up a number of prestigious industry accolades along the way.
To celebrate the businesses 10th anniversary, the new team have spent the year designing and launching two new products including their signature Pink Gin which is blushed with Yorkshire raspberries and strawberries and their new London Dry Gin, both of which a proving popular with new and existing customers alike.
Bethany continues: “Our moto at The Little Red Berry Co is ‘enjoy the little things’ and it’s why we love taking our range of Yorkshire made products and sharing them with people across the country.
“We’ve worked hard on our rebrand over the last year which has been really exciting and has enabled us to put our own mark on the products and reflect the direction we’re taking.
“Because The Little Red Berry Co is so proud of its Yorkshire roots, we wanted to incorporate our heritage into our labels which now feature the Yorkshire Dales which is at the very heart of where we source our handpicked, foraged, and locally sourced ingredients wherever possible.
“We hope our new style labels can take us forward through the next ten years and we’ve already had some fantastic feedback from customers and stockists alike.
“Going forwards we are really keen to focus on sustainability and being as environmentally friendly as possible so all our labels are now recyclable and made from recycled materials and this ethos will continue throughout the business as we retain our hands on approach from bottling to packaging and steering clear of artificial colours and preservatives.
“As well as the environmental focus we also have some really exciting plans to launch new products next year which will complement our existing range and we also can’t wait to get back out to markets and shows again and be able to meet our customers in person again.”
