Partnering opportunity

A French manufacturer of craft gin and cold brew offers distribution services agreements


A SME from France which manufactures under its own brand craft gin and cold brew is looking for new partners in order to place its products under distribution services agreements.

Partner sought

Due to an increase of its output, the SME wishes to work with new partners out of France to increase its export sales turnover. It is therefore searching for importers who have a wide network of : - wine shops, - restaurants, - bars, - delicatessen which would be able to provide their customers these high-quality beverages.


As part of its growth strategy into international markets, the French manufacturer would like to find new distributors for two products : craft gin and cold brew. Their gin is premium, as made from highest quality French wheat alcohol. The special flavour of this gin is due to each botanical component (8 among which Croatian Juniper, Spanish Orange Peels and Italian Orris Roots). Maceration takes place directly in an alembic in an optimum mix of alcohol and water. Slow distillation by flame allows to produce the most aromatic gin. After distillation an essence is added made from local apples to harmonize the gin. The company managers who are issued from hospitality and sommellerie sectors have also developed their own recipes to drink their gin whether neat, in a cocktail or classic gin and tonic. Gin bottles are 70 cl. Alcohol content is 40°. Cold brew, a quality coffee liqueur is the lastest beverage created by the SME further to a recent partnership with a local coffee roaster. A cold infusion and a drop by drop process ensure the maximum flavour is extracted. The searched partners should be importers with a significant network (wine shops, restaurants, bars, delicatessen...). E-commerce sales are also possible via their website, but only for individuals.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
