Kuro gin adds Harvey Nichols to its retail distribution

Japanese-inspired gin brand Kuro has increased its distribution base in a listing deal with Harvey Nichols.

The gin was launched earlier this year and is being distributed by Hammonds of Knutsford.

Kuro has silver birch bark, spruce needles and bamboo-activated charcoal among its blend of botanicals.

It is made at the Langley Distillery with production limited to 3,000 bottles a batch.

Kuro managing director Craig Fell said: “We’re thrilled to have secured a place for Kuro among some of the world’s most desirable products in one of the UK’s most popular department stores.

“This is a big step to establishing Kuro among discerning gin drinkers’ favourite tipples.”
