Last week we headed down to Olympia in London for the UK's biggest indoor vegan market! We were really excited to take our boozy creamy oat milk cocktails to the people of London and spread the Panther M*lk love.
It was a festival of highs and lows!
1st of all we got some gorgeous shiny gift boxes made especially for the event and DPD told us they weren't going to arrive till after we had finished the show. We were absolutely gutted as they looked stunning and would have made the perfect present for those shopping for Christmas gifts.
Then only half the amount of people that were estimated to turn up at the show came, which meant less people to buy Panther M*lk and sadly we were left with lots of stock we had to return back to Glasgow with. I think people are still a little scared of attending large indoor events post- COVID, understandably.
However, we had an amazing time speaking to people about Panther M*lk. Many people said it tasted like 'vegan Baileys' and bought bottles for their family Christmas. The top selling product was our award winning Vanilla flavour and festival favourite Coffee flavour.
It is always a risk doing expensive events like this far away from our Glaswegian base as the price of travel, accommodation, staff time, food all adds up. However it is still always worth it to spread the word on Panther M*lk and to see people's faces light up when they get their first sip of our ferociously smooth cocktails.
