2017 was a busy one!
We would like to say Happy New Year to everyone a little ahead of time and extend a massive thank you to all who supported us in 2017! It's been a slightly manic year with many high's and low's but it has also been the best year of FDC's existence so we can't complain!
As is the case in most small businesses, we don't often take time to stop and reflect on all that has been achieved so we figured we'd get into a reflective mood before the madness of tomorrow ensues with all the party preparations for New Year's Eve!
We should note that when discussing our highlights for 2017, the majority of these highlights happen or take place from June 2017 to December 2017. Why? Simply because our Scotch Whisky Cocktails only went into production in June 2017! We can't quite believe that it was only six months ago when we were finally able to hold our finished Scotch Whisky cocktails in our hands after so many months of tastings, design changes and wrapping acetate labels around blank cans! From that month on, it's been a whirlwind of hard work, surprise, fun, sadness, intrigue and a whole lot of learning!
We don't want to take up too much of your time, so here's a list of some of our other highlights from 2017:
-Shortly after production, we won the World(!) Beverage Innovation Award 2017 for Best Premium/Adult drink and flew over to Munich to receive the prize.
-The whole team have been out and about, attending numerous events, samplings and tastings. We have loved chatting to everyone about the brand and we have loved watching people react to the taste of each of the four drinks individually. We have learned a lot(!) from being out 'In the field', chatting to people ourselves and we have loved every minute of it!
-We can now walk into a selection of bars (and some supermarkets!) across Scotland and buy the products we have worked so hard to create, which is very cool!
-We had an incredible staff night out at the Ubiquitous Chip, where one too many beverages may (or may not) have been consumed... that has to go in the highlight reel- right?
These are just a few of the highlights from our 2017 but we are so incredibly excited for an even bigger 2018. You will be seeing a lot more of us and hearing a lot more from us so please stay tuned with all our news and updates via this website or sign up to read our newsletters.
Thanks, we appreciate you!
