Yarm based Revelry Spirits has agreed a 12-month collaboration with Teesside International Airport. Following a five-figure investment by Revelry Spirits co-founders Liam Price and Katrina Rosser, the distillery has agreed a package which will see them represented in the airport’s Transporter Bar and Goosepool Bar.
Following a successful initial year in business, the small-batch craft distiller recognised an opportunity to increase their exposure and expand their corporate connections by advertising exclusively in the airport’s bars whilst promoting their premium gin and vodka.
After undergoing a multi-million-pound redevelopment, Revelry Spirits will now feature in the brand new Goosepool Bar and renovated Transporter Bar and Kitchen located in the terminal building’s departure lounge.
Additionally, passengers will view a series of Revelry Spirits promotional videos displayed on digital LCD screens throughout the airport. The advertising package also enables the distillery to gain traction through branded signage that has been installed at the bar areas.
Discussing their new venture, Liam Price, co-founder of Revelry Spirits said: “We are proud of our heritage and are always looking for new ways to support the local area. It’s great to see Teesside International Airport back up and running and it’s been a highlight for our brand to be a part of the airport’s redevelopment.”
Katrina Rosser, co-founder of Revelry Spirits added: “We are thrilled to partner with the airport to promote our new handcrafted spirits. The airport will allow us to gain international exposure from passengers from around the world which aids our ambitious growth plans.”
The partnership demonstrates the airport’s commitment in supporting local business, Ben Houchen, Tees Valley Mayor said: Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen added: “It’s great to see such a fantastic example of innovation in another brilliant local business. I’m delighted Revelry will be available alongside other amazing local firms and products in our airport.
“Small businesses are the lifeblood of our local economy and as we continue to recover from the impact of the coronavirus it’s more important than ever that our budding entrepreneurs have the chances to promote their products.
“By partnering with this local distillery we are able, once again, to keep the money we spend in our region and put it back in the pockets of local people from across Teesside, Darlington and Hartlepool.”
The local distillery situated on Danby Wynd, Yarm High Street, distils, bottles and labels every product in-house and has recently launched their own premium naturally filtered vodka. All spirits are distilled using Swale Valley Spring Water from Richmond, North Yorkshire, filtered through limestone rock in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales. Revelry Spirits’ partnership with the airport adds to their portfolio of collaborations with global companies including Fujifilm and Sofia Windfarm.
