Founded in 2015 by business school-friends Jon Hulme, 42, and John Burke, 39, Craft Gin Club charges a monthly subscription to send its members specialist gins, tonics, mixers, food snacks, and its magazine. The London company says it is the first club of its kind in the world and curates gins exclusively for its 42,000 members. It secured £75,000 from Sarah Willingham, 44, on BBC television series Dragons’ Den in return for a 12.5% stake in 2016, and plans to test its subscription model in Ireland and Germany. Sales were £6.5m this year, and are forecast to reach £10m in the year to January 2019, supported by 29 employees.
