A cocktail delivery business that was launched by Irish businesswoman Natasha Thomas and her husband, former rugby professional rugby player Jack Durling, in April of this year has sold over 10,000 products and generated turnover of approximately £250,000 since it began operating.
Named Lockdown Liquor & Co, the business sells a range of five cocktails in three bottle sizes.
As reported by The Business Post, approximately 30% of the business's online orders to date have come from Ireland.
First Fundraising Round
Thomas and Durling have just completed their first fundraising round, which resulted in an angel investor taking an 8% stake in the business. The money generated by the fundraising round will be used to secure new retail and hospitality stockists for the business's cocktails and hire additional staff.
