In this interview, we had the opportunity to sit down with Hugo Hodgson & George Blurton, Co-Founders of Long Shot Drinks.
The business was created when in 2019, the pair who were from a corporate background, saw a gap in the market of canned cocktails and drinks for a reduced sugar and cleaner option which then become Long Shot Drinks.
Long Shot is a no-nonsense blend of fruit juice, alcohol and sparkling water. A British take on the American ‘Hard Seltzer’ trend that kick-started a multi-billion dollar industry; championing classic British flavour combinations to create a lighter, more refreshing way to drink. The duo like to challenge traditional drinking norms and encourage our drinkers to take their own Long Shot and try something new today.
During the interview, they share more about their story, how the business overcame challenges, best marketing strategies and how they think there will be a more health conscious focus within the industry.
