Last weekend (23rd – 25th September) saw us attend our first ever exhibition! The Scottish Home Show 2016 saw us take part with over 200 other exhibitors for the weekend and it was a great experience!
As well as having our own stand we were asked to supply whisky and gin tastings for Dandara Homes, who were the main sponsors of the event. This saw us serving the best of our local Spirits in the centre of the arena, including Glen Garioch, Glendronach and Ardmore whiskies and Porters, Esker, Teasmith and House of Elrick Gin.
The stand was a hive of activity and was a great platform for us to promote our business to a larger audience than ever before.
We were also offering pre-orders for the upcoming House of Elrick Gin – which went down a storm (you can continue to pre order the gin Here!)
Also on offer was our great Friday Giveaway – run by the Scottish Home Show – the prize was an absolutely fantastic hamper of 6 Spirits, Porters, Esker, Glen Garioch, Glendronach, Ardmore and an exclusive one-off bottling of The Teasmith Gin! An overwhelming response to the competition saw countless entrants enter via Facebook. The winner was Karen Inglis – Well done Karen – I’m sure you’ll enjoy your prize!
The event was certainly a learning curve for me and all the staff at the shop and after starting some hopefully great and successful business links with Angus and Oink, House of Elrick, Aberdeen Whisky Shop, Windmill Print, Rock Rose, Daffy’s Gin and many more, we’ll definitely be back next year!
