Cocktail firm in bloom with new Edinburgh distribution centre

King Bloom Cocktails, the ready-to-drink cocktail company set up by Edinburgh entrepreneur Calum Mckinnon, is gearing up for expansion with the letting of a new warehouse to handle manufacturing and distribution.

The business has completed a deal with landlord IPIF to let a refurbished unit, totalling 1,895 sq ft, at West Telferton Industrial Estate for five years at an annual rate of £13,500.

Based in the East End of London, King Bloom Cocktails deliver original ready-to-drink cocktails to a range of stockists, bars and online retailers across the UK. The new unit in Edinburgh will support the business’s ambition to expand its distribution and acquire new customers in Scotland.

West Telferton Industrial Estate is located approximately 3.5 miles east of Edinburgh City Centre, comprising 11 units, totalling 29,000 sq ft. Other tenants include Rentec Autocare, Stoats Porridge Bars and Easter Road Plastics. There is only one remaining unit available on the site, which has recently been refurbished, and is available at a quoting rent of £7.15 per sq ft.

Geoff Ferguson, Graduate Surveyor, Industrial and Logistics for JLL in Scotland, said: “West Telferton Industrial Estate offers King Bloom Cocktails a great base for its manufacturing and distribution plans in Scotland, providing them with a good quality refurbished unit, well located just outside of the City Centre and close to the A1. This location, combined with the high standard of refurbishment delivered by IPIF, has resulted in an increase in enquiries from potential tenants looking for premises outside the City Centre. We expect the estate to be fully occupied soon.”
