White Peak Distillery launches crowd funding programme

The Peak District based distillery, is inviting interested parties to consider supporting the crowd funding campaign that is being run through Crowdcube. As part of the growth around the whisky launch, it plans to add to its team and increase resources across the business.

Whilst the fundraising for the distillery founded by husband-and-wife team Max and Claire Vaughan in 2016, has already hit its minimum target, the team is looking to offer as many keen investors as possible the chance to be part of the Distillery’s future.

Commenting on the news, Max Vaughan, Co-founder of White Peak Distillery, said: “Our journey over the past five years has been incredibly rewarding. We are so proud to have established the Distillery as a recognised, innovative business within the Peak District, whilst winning awards for our spirits within the drinks industry and our visitor experience within our vital local community.”

He went onto say: “Our team is passionate about the business we’re building: our extraordinary location and its regeneration, the heritage we are building upon and the spirits we are curating as a true taste of our homeland. We are all now excited for the next chapter of our story to unfold with the release of our single malt whisky later this year. To make the most of this opportunity and so that we can accelerate our growth plans, we’ve decided to launch our crowd funding campaign and the interest so far has been amazing.”
