The three siblings behind new English spirits brand Bucks Brothers Gin are hoping to reach new heights in 2021 after a successful launch.
Max, Jake and Gus Derry, who were born and raised in Buckinghamshire, decided to start their own gin brand to further their education in and love of gin.
Since launching their Buckinghamshire Dry Gin in October 2020, the brothers have sold more than 1,500 bottles and signed deals with more than 30 stockists. In their first eight weeks of business alone, they turned over £40,000.
Eldest brother Max, 28, says: “People love our product. The response has been unbelievable. We’ve had loads of repeat customers, with many people saying it’s the only gin they want to drink now.”
Off the back of its early success, Bucks Brothers has launched a second spirit alongside its signature Buckinghamshire Dry Gin. The brand’s Pomegranate and Sloe Gin Liqueur was released in December 2020 as a seasonal edition, but the brothers have decided to sell it all year round due to its positive reception.
A third gin, the 58% ABV Naval Bucks Brother Gin, is due to launch in early 2021 and a Bucks Brothers Limoncello Gin is planned for the summer.
All Bucks Brothers Gin is made locally in a handmade copper pot still and the brothers hand wax each bottle top.
Once lockdown restrictions are lifted in England, the boys will be taking Bucks Brothers out on the road. They plan to host gin bars at events, festivals and weddings.
They have also had a range of Bucks Brothers merchandise made. Branded hoodies, T-shirts, beanies, ceramic mugs and original artwork will soon be available to buy at bucksbrothers.co.uk.
