Black Isle secures Majestic Wine listing
Black Isle Brewing has secured a national off-trade listing with Majestic Wine, the UK’s largest independent wine retailer.
The deal will see the organic craft brewer’s flagship beer, Black Isle Organic Blonde rolled out across all of the group’s 200-plus stores and online shop from today.
Founder David Gladwin said: “It’s great for an organic beer to get a UK-wide listing with a retailer like Majestic.
“We believe everywhere that sells beer should have at least one organic choice, and of course, we want that to be Black Isle. Our message is drink great beer and help the environment at the same time.”
Beth Pearce, buyer at Majestic, said Black Isle offered the sort of principles Majestic admires.
“We’re excited to be the first retailer to offer them a national sales platform and look forward to what the future will bring,” she said.
Black Isle Brewery is the only organic brewery in Scotland. It exports to 15 countries, including Hong Kong, Japan, Sweden, USA and Russia.
