Video: Meet the businesses you lend to: Bramley & Gage


Bramley & Gage was started 25 years ago by husband and wife, Edward and Penny Kain. Their son, Michael, has since taken over the family business which manufactures award-winning fruit liqueurs and gin in Thornbury, Gloucestershire.

Their fruit liqueurs which include strawberry, elderflower and plum, have won numerous prestigious drink awards and their 6 o’Clock Gin is now stocked in Waitrose stores nationwide.

In May, they took out a peer-to-peer loan through Funding Circle for £25k to buy a new gin still to help them increase their production. This was funded by 248 people in 7 days. In this video we explore how the business started and became what Bramley and Gage is today. Edward and Michael also share their experience of Funding Circle as a small business borrower.
