Specialist gin store in Durham city centre seeks new owner

Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co has brought to the market Durham Ginstitute, a specialist gin store and online business situated in Durham.

Occupying a high street location within Durham city centre, the store offers over 200 gin brands and hosts gin tasting experiences, while the website offers a delivery service of its gins across the UK. Established by the current owner a year and a half ago, Durham Ginstitute is still in its infancy and presents an ideal opportunity for a new owner to take on an established business with the website, fixtures and fittings, staff and trade suppliers in place and tremendous growth potential.

Andrew Birnie, Director at Christie & Co is handling the sale and comments, “Durham city centre attracts visitors from all over the world and families visiting students at the university. Having already established a good reputation among both local residents and travellers who enjoy the special range of gins available, Durham Ginstitute would ideally suit a first time business owner or a licensed business owner looking to add a retail stream to their portfolio.”

Christie & Co is seeking an asking price of £45,000 for the leasehold interest of Durham Ginstitute.
