Welcome to the Team!


Laura joins the Cooper King team

Laura Bartram has joined us as events and development manager to support the distillery in the coming year.

Laura, who hails from Pickering, has an array of experience in the drinks industry, having established and managed a speakeasy-style cocktail and gin bar for the last three years.

Laura’s main duties at the distillery are managing a number of on- and off-site events, developing cocktails for the distillery bar and new releases, and assisting with production of spirit.


We’re delighted to have welcomed Laura to the Cooper King team; this has been an extremely exciting year for us and it’s fantastic to have Laura joining the journey. We were immediately impressed with Laura’s experience and she has already proven to be a real asset to the team; it’s a real pleasure to have her on board.

Laura told us:

“I am thrilled to be working for Cooper King Distillery, an exciting start-up company with such an inspiring story behind it. It’s great to be able to apply the industry knowledge I’ve gained into a company which is continuously focused on having a positive impact on the environment, and creating fantastic, innovative spirits.” 

Our small team has grown just as we discovered that our Dry Gin scooped triple bronze in the UK Bartender Brand Awards, as well as a finalist nomination in the Spirit of Gin category in The Gin Guide Awards 2019. This award category is not open for entry and is nominated by writers, bloggers and influencers in the industry. We received multiple nominations based on our approach to green energy and environmental initiatives, which you can read more about here.
