Fiducia Partners Limited has closed a deal for our client, ABH Management, to invest in Aloha ’65, a pineapple, ginger and chilli spirit that has become popular in the South West of England and plans to expand internationally. ABH Management, the private investment arm of an UHNW family with expertise in the agricultural sector, approached Fiducia Partners when it decided to diversify its portfolio, knowing that we specialise in providing private introductions to investment opportunities.
Speaking about its investment, ABH Management’s Chief Operating Office Barry Hudson said: “We are delighted to be part of the Idle Lord’s journey and believe this drink will offer a new taste to the UK market. Fiducia Partners’ involvement, providing the introduction and support, was invaluable”.
This is an exciting move for the family as there is huge potential in the drinks industry, with the latest report from data firm IRI reporting alcohol as the top selling consumer goods category in the UK, worth an estimated £16.1 billion in 2017.
