Diageo will acquire Chase Distillery, the owner of Chase GB Gin and the award-winning Chase Original Potato Vodka. Founded in 2008 by Entrepreneur William Chase, the Chase Distillery portfolio includes seven gins, four vodkas and an elderflower liqueur. In addition to Chase GB Gin, Chase has created a number of flavored gins, including Pink Grapefruit & Pomelo, Seville Marmalade and Rhubarb & Bramley Apple. The portfolio also includes Williams Elegant 48 Gin, made using 48 rare varieties of apple from 200-year-old orchards. The spirits portfolio is distilled from scratch using British-grown potatoes, apples and all-natural botanicals grown on the Chase Farm in Herefordshire. The acquisition is expected to close in early 2021 subject to regulatory clearances.
