Alcohols Ltd begins multi-million-pound upgrade – The Spirits Business

Third-party spirits producer Alcohols Limited is consolidating its operations as part of a multi-million-pound investment.

The UK-based company, part of the family-owned Palmer Group, claims to make ‘over 75% of Britain’s artisan gins’.

It will move the majority of its operations to a purpose-built five-acre site in Rugby, Warwickshire, England.

The investment will merge the company’s head office, currently in Bishop’s Stortford, with the Langley Distillery in Birmingham and distribution facility in London.

Langley Distillery’s Oldbury site in Birmingham will be retained to support innovation, with an interactive visitor centre to promote the history of gin.

Construction has already begun at the new Rugby site, and basic building work is expected to be completed by mid-2022. The fit-out and new plant should be commissioned by the end of 2023.

Alcohols Limited hopes consolidating the company on a single site will allow the business to introduce new offerings, such as an on-site laboratory, to increase customer services.

Adam Wallis, Alcohols Limited managing director, said: “Because of the heritage of the Palmer Group and Alcohols Limited, our current operating sites have no capacity for expansion and are severely restricting the growth of the business.

“They are in locations which were once rural, but are now surrounded by housing developments. The new Rugby site provides scope for the environmentally sensitive future development.

“Our products, services, technical and customer support will all remain fully operational during the development of the new site and facilities. From our customers’ perspective, this process will be a seamless transition.

“The new site will bring significant manufacturing capability and allow the business to grow and prosper. The excellent transport connections, train and road with A14/M1/M6 are an added benefit for moving to the region.”
