Trading update

Distil plc (AIM: DIS), owner of premium drinks brands RedLeg Spiced Rum, Blackwoods Gin and Vodka, Blavod Black Vodka, Jago's Cream Liqueur and Diva Vodka, is pleased to provide and update on trading for the first quarter of its current financial year.

Unaudited year-on-year first quarter (April - June 2018) revenues increased by 27% and volumes increased by 21%.

Due to Easter falling in April last year, sales in the first quarter of 2017 included Easter promotional activity whereas much of the Easter sales in 2018 came through in March. To remove this phasing imbalance, we are also providing the unaudited six-month performance figures to 30 June 2018; year on year revenues increased 28% and volumes increased 27% over this six-month period.

Don Goulding, Executive Chairman of Distil, said:

"Growth momentum of our key brands continues at a healthy pace, supported by marketing and promotional activities at the point of sale. The gin and rum markets remain buoyant. Our brand performance within these categories is strong and in line with our expectations."
