About this business for sale in Auckland Surrounds

Blush Gin. NZ Award Winning Premium Craft Spirits Company.

Exceptional opportunity to acquire a New Zealand success story and a front-runner in the NZ craft spirits market.

This well-established business has made significant waves in the craft spirit market and the product sits proudly on many a liquor outlet’s shelves next to very high-profile international brands.

Blush was founded some 6 years ago by owners Chris & Elliot who had a common passion for the wine and spirits industry and a love for great food. Hundreds of hours of infusion and experimentation later and the pair came up with the magic recipe and the first batch was produced in 500ml jam jars!

The company has grown to enjoy annual sales of over $1.2m (ex GST).

A LITTLE MORE ABOUT BLUSH GIN

Blush is serious about making a quality Gin. It’s triple distilled and hand-crafted. From the flavour to the bottling and labeling, every detail has had attention paid to it. There is something to be said for being locally made. 

In the last few months, the company has launched a new range called “Weekender” at a price point that allows distribution through a network of liquor outlets where the premium Blush range would not fare so well.

In addition to Gin, the company also produces 2 lines of Rum and there are recipes and plans for other products.

THE OPERATION

Blush Gin is situated in a warehouse on Auckland’s, North Shore. Here, the company produces the syrups and infusions that then go to a third-party distiller where the final product is realised. Bottling and labeling is all handled off-site and the product is then sent to wholesalers and liquor stores around the country.

The 2 owners run the operation and that’s all that’s needed! Everything else is outsourced.

WHO WILL BUY THIS BUSINESS?

You possibly could be from the liquor industry, but it is more likely that you are attracted by a very well-established, NZ brand that is going places!  Use your transferable business skills and choose your own role in this attractive business.  Will it be Sales?  Marketing? Operations? Maybe you just want to oversee the whole thing and put someone else in a role.

WHY WOULD YOU BUY THIS BUSINESS?

Well, just look at the brand! How cool would it be to own a slice of the NZ craft spirits market and with such a cool ‘on trend’ product.  The reviews are sensational and Blush mostly wins any taste test it is entered in to.

Significant assistance and support is available from the current owners and – here’s the really great thing – one of the owners may look to stay on for an extended contract.  Absolute peace of mind for you, then!
