The company has developed a range of attractive, innovative, premium brands. We own the Stivy’s Original brand, Black Wolf Brewery, and Boe gin. These are sold in all the major UK supermarket chains, in pubs and clubs and are successfully exported to Europe and beyond.
We believe in the power of being different, in standing out from the crowd by being innovative and creative, and in having the courage to make bold decisions. We are dynamic and energetic, with a burning desire to create growth for our brands and customers by delighting our consumers.
Black Wolf Brewery is the company’s craft brewery based in Throsk a few miles outside of Stirling. The brewery produces a range of award winning beers in bottle, cask and keg. In 2014 the company launched a new range of beers and launched Coulls premium craft lager in keg and bottle.
Stivy’s vodka liquer has been a very successful party drink in Scotland and Ireland for over 10 years. A fun, young brand it is very popular with students and drinkers aged 18-30, and people who think they are. It is available in Kola and Sherbet Lemon flavour, and is supported with radio advertising and through social media, in store promotions and promotions in night clubs. Stivy’s cider was launched in May 2014 with two flavours, Kola Fruit and Cherry Berry. Targeting the same consumers as Stivy’s vodka liquer, both cider flavours were immediately listed by a major supermarket and are quickly gaining distribution in the on and off trades.
Boe Gin is a premium gin made with 13 hand-picked botanicals that include wild cassia bark, cardamom and cubeb berries. In 2014, against competition from the world’s premium gins, Boe won silver medal at the World Gin Awards, an outstanding achievement which we are very proud of.
