Spring has sprung!

With April nearly done and May fast approaching, life is returning to some sort of normality here at Kin HQ.  With the warmer temperatures (well, on some of the days), our thoughts turn to BBQ's and picnics and of course the odd cocktail or two. One of my personal favourite cocktails is the amazing Toffee Lemon Bon Bon, which has only three ingredients, 25ml Kin Toffee Vodka, 25ml Limoncello and 200ml low sugar lemonade. Or if  you're feeling in a frivolous mood, replace the lemonade with prosecco,  job done, happy days!! Even our event teams are making a tentative return at various outdoor settings, which is so exciting for everyone concerned.  If you see one of our teams out and...

Any excuse, it's Easter !!

As the next chance to indulge is fast approaching, why not start a new tradition and pimp up your Easter eggs with our beautiful Kin Toffee or Toffee Apple Vodka. Whether it's filling the chocolate vessel of  choice, egg, bunny or chick with our toffeelicious Spirit drink and consuming in one, or choosing a more restrained approach and adding to a glass of fizz, you will not be disappointed. Not that I'm suggesting you deprive anyone in your household of their chocolate quota, but I do know of someone that has actually hidden her stash from her Hubby, just ensure she doesn't run short!! Happy Easter

New Iconic Sustainable Bottle Design for Kin

We are launching a brand new range of bespoke, sustainably designed bottles for our award winning Kin Vodka brand.  Made from 50 per cent recycled glass, the new bottles have a fresh new look, which further enhances the our Lake District roots.  Kin’s familiar bird branding – a wren named after founder, Judith Wren – takes pride of place embossed on the neck of the bottles, which also feature an embossed design to mirror the iconic Lakes viewpoint of the Langdales as appears on the Lakeland slate-effect label. Additional embossed stars depicting a clear Lakeland sky adorn the bottles’ base.   The full revamped range was originally due to be on the shelves from late spring 2021, but unprecedented demand in the...

Summer's just around the corner - honestly!

We had some sunny warm weather a few weeks ago, and it was great that we British immediately dragged out our shorts lit the barbecue and mowed the lawn. Unfortunately since then it’s not been exactly tropical but we of course live in hope! In anticipation of another long hot summer being on the horizon we have been playing about with some delicious Toffee Vodka summer cocktails....  And one of our favourites is to add a splash of Old Fashioned Lemonade to our Toffee Vodka which miraculously transforms it into a Lemon Sherbert - great for those upcoming lounging days in the garden. Also, don't forget it's great over ice cream and also to make some fresh pineapple tropical -...

Mind boggling

I’ve always considered myself reasonably 'on it' with social media and the benefits it can bring. Yes I know there’s an army of doubters and although I’m not a millennial by any means, I love universe all these platforms open up to us and how they bring a myriad of worlds to our phones and iPads. My usage has increased significantly in recent years as I’ve embarked on the roller coaster that is small business. Without social media, websales basically wouldn’t exist. Neither would the engagement with those thousands of people who would have passed us by, but for the ‘window’ that is Twitter, FB and Instagram. It’s not all about sales, it’s building proper relationships, spreading the passion that...
