A GDC Tasting Shed inside your existing retail shop? Sensational.

Expressions of interest on a GDC franchise open now

You may have an apparel store, a deli or a high end homewares or gift store. Now imagine if you could supplement that and create a unique customer experience by offering your guests a gin tasting while they browse?

GDC’s tasting shed in Greytown is a destination. It’s a source of fun. It creates excellent conversations and interactive experiences. And it is a sales powerhouse.

We’ve road-tested this concept by setting up the very first GDC Tasting Shed inside the popular Blackwell and Sons emporium in Greytown. In a small 2 x 1 meter space, we generated almost  $500,000 in sales in the first year. And having that facility inside Blackwell and Sons created a new reason to pop in for a tasting and a purchase, exposing the guest to the rest of the store.

Suitable for high end retail

It’s a premium offer for premium stores but it’s versatile enough to work with men’s or women’s apparel, a gourmet delicatessen or food offer, or high end homewares, furniture or gifts.

Liquor licence required

Franchisees will be required to obtain a liquor licence and undergo duty manager training to ensure compliance with liquor trading laws. We can help you understand the process and what’s involved.

We’ll build it for you

We can build a modular unit using our existing design that creates strong visual impact, based on how much floor space you have available. We’ll take care of the installation and initial merchandising, plus full training, POP and POS facilities. You’ll be ready to trade after just a day of working with us. We’ll also support you with social media marketing across all major platforms.

Always fresh and totally exclusive

You’ll be the only one in your region offering premium GDC gins in unique stainless steel flasks and your offer will refresh itself across the year with new gin releases, new merchandise and exciting new marketing materials. You’ll make solid industry margin on our incredible gins and you’ll be the first to access new distilled offers like Bourbon-style whiskey.

Low cost entry

Unlike other Franchise systems, we’ll get you up and running quickly with an accessible entry price and low franchisee maintenance costs. We’ll expect a high standard of execution, but that’s in everyone’s best interests, right? And we’ll ensure you always get the best wholesale price on GDC products available so you can maximise your margin and profitability.
