THIRSTY WORK FOR BIKE COURIER

The Divine Gin micro-distillery in Huddersfield has launched a dedicated motorcycle delivery service for its products. BDN alcoholism editor Lunchtime O’Booze reports.

Yorkshire drinkers who order Divine Gin supplies from the company’s website can now benefit from fast door-to-door deliveries by founder and head distiller Ray Woolhead, employing his KTM 1290 Super Adventure. Woolhead and his wife Rachel (pictured) launched the service to mark World Gin Day on Saturday 13 June.

“We lost around 70% of our trade sales when pubs and bars were forced to close, so we have had to think on our feet to keep things moving,” explained Rachel Woolhead. “We’ve had quite a bit of success with online gin-tasting classes, which have helped drive sales, and we think the courier service is something unique that gin enthusiasts will enjoy.”

Ray Woolhead added: “It’s not often people meet the very person who made the gin they’re drinking, let alone have it delivered to them on a motorbike. So we think this provides that bit of light relief most of us are looking for at the moment.”
