It’s true to say that Manchester Gin has become one of the great success stories of the area, with a variety of award wins and rapid expansion in the space of 3 years. It now has the Spirit of Manchester Distillery which is a state-of-the-art distillery capable of producing a million bottles a year. It’s an amazing achievement.
With a specialist business like this, it’s important that their insurance cover is the right one and the technical experts advising them on this are the best. And that’s where Carl Abbot our Head of Commercial Insurance comes into his own. Carl has been working with Manchester Gin for a couple of years after going in to review their insurance and identifying gaps that were rectified with a premium saving.
Carl says “Manchester Gin is a rapidly progressive business and it’s important to me that I know I’ve provided the first-class service to them. Face-to-face is always the best as I can get to know the business. In this case, I attended the insurer survey, that way I could be assured nothing important was missed.
My job doesn’t stop there, as due to expansion there have been a number of changes throughout the year, so their policy regularly needs reviewing and keeping up to date.
For me, working with our clients is about much more than making sure they get the right cover. It’s about understanding where they are, aim to be and how I can help them to have peace of mind that they are covered in the right way at the right price”.
Jennie Wiggins, Co-founder and Director of Manchester Gin says “LIFT-Insurance are unique due to their attention to detail, level of client care and understanding of commercial businesses and the realities of how they operate. Thank you to Carl for his time and patience in helping us get commercial insurance for our business”.
