Black Isle Brewing Co founder David Gladwin
Black Isle Brewing Co has secured a national off-trade listing with Majestic Wine, the UK’s largest independent wine retailer. The deal sees the organic craft brewer’s flagship beer, Black Isle Organic Blonde, rolled out across all of the group’s 200-plus UK stores, and online shop, in 330ml bottles.
Black Isle founder, David Gladwin, said: “It’s great for an organic beer to get a UK-wide listing with a retailer like Majestic. They recognise the growing demand for high-quality organic beer that offers genuine provenance and sustainability. 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, added: “Black Isle is a fantastic independent craft brewer with very firm beliefs and principles. They care passionately about what they do. That’s something we admire greatly, not to mention the fact that their organic Blonde is an outstanding beer. We’re excited to be the first retailer to offer them a national sales platform and look forward to what the future will bring.”
