Spreading our story from Zagreb to Dubrovnik


roatia has got it all: mountains, beaches, islands, historical cities (Dubrovnik!) and one of the most beautiful national parks in Europe… After setting foot in Slovenia earlier this year, we now hop over to neighbouring Croatia for a brand new but equally exciting partnership.

For those of you who have visited ‘the land of a thousand islands’, the praise above won’t come as a surprise. Over the years, Croatia has become a popular holiday destination for a reason: the country at the crossroads of Central and Southeast Europe offers the best for each and every type of traveller. And as of now also for each and every lover of delicate and versatile gin, because Brza Distribucija has joined the flamingo family as our new distributor in Croatia.

Brza Distribucija is a well-known and well-respected wholesaler and importer of wines and spirits, combining extensive knowledge of local products with a strong passion for unique and high quality import products. The company, founded and led by a group of ambitious friends, has built a strong network in all segments, from on trade and off trade to e-commerce; Brza Distribucija runs two of the leading wine and spirits websites of Croatia, tipsy.hr and wineandmore.com

Brza Distribucija is eager to start promoting and distributing Sir Edmond throughout Croatia, says Dario Drmač, CEO. “We are delighted that we will have the opportunity to present this product with an unusual character to the Croatian market. In the process of finding a product to import and present to the Croatian public we did an extensive research and Sir Edmond Gin was one that ticked all the boxes for us. It is a high quality product, with a great story and awesome people behind it. We are certain that together we can make Sir Edmond one of the most recognizable Gins Brands on the Croatian market. We are looking forward to everything ahead of us.”

Sir Edmond co-founder Dominique Makatita can’t wait to get started on spreading the story of our Bourbon vanilla-infused gin in Croatia. “As we continue on our journey throughout the world to highlight the uniqueness of our signature botanical Bourbon vanilla, I am delighted with this fantastic opportunity to bring Sir Edmond Gin to the emerging Croatian market. It’s such a beautiful and authentic country and we are thrilled to be present from the capital Zagreb in the North all the way along the irresistible coastline to Dubrovnik in the very South. I look forward to working together with the Brza Distribucija team, who combine a lot of experience with true entrepreneurial spirit!”

“We are confident that Brza Distribucija is the right partner with a fantastic team to introduce Sir Edmond Gin in their market”, adds Sir Edmond co-owner T-J van der Drift. “Together with our own team at headquarters, we will undertake all the necessary steps to support Brza Distribucija to the fullest, as we are in this together.”

(Oh, and in case you were wondering about the national park we mentioned earlier: it’s the Plitvice Lakes National Park. A park of rare beauty that you should definitely visit when you get the chance. We promise you won’t regret it one bit…)
