Gin distillery raises glass to growth with Newcastle city centre premises

A gin distillery has announced the launch of a new retail unit in the centre of Newcastle.

WL Distillery is set to launch a new store at STACK Newcastle in the heart of the city this weekend.

Situated at unit 20 of the Northumberland Street site, WL Distillery will stock its own range of gins as well as other brands from across the region.

Ranges from House of Ruhr, the Sunderland-based supplier of handcrafted spirits and liqueur distilled by artisans in Germany’s Ruhr Valley, will be stocked, as well as products from Northumberland drinks firm Artisan Drinks.

Scott Wilson-Laing, founder and managing director at WL Distillery, commented: “I’m all too aware how difficult the last year has been for businesses across the region and here at WL Distillery we managed to adapt our business strategy like many others to field the pandemic.

“We have however, been able to benefit from strong growth which has been supported by securing an array of industry awards over the last few months.

“The opening of the unit at the STACK Newcastle is a great opportunity to further build our visual presence and also a chance to work with key local suppliers and producers such as House of Ruhr and Artisan Drinks to showcase the great range of products supplied in the North East.”

Neill Winch, CEO of Danieli Holdings which owns and operates STACK Newcastle, added: “We are delighted that WL Distillery will be joining us at STACK Newcastle.

“As a North East based business we are passionate about creating opportunities for local entrepreneurs. WL Distillery is an award-winning local success story and it’s great that they’ll be sharing the next stage of their journey with a unit at our site.”
