End of the road for White Rock Brewery


The White Rock Brewery - known for its popular local craft beers and gin - has gone into liquidation.

Shareholders decided to liquidate the business on 6 August, as it was reportedly struggling to pay its way.

Since then, the brewery has quickly begun to shut down.

Its website - whiterockbrewery.gg - where people could buy products and find out more about the brand is no longer up and running, while its Facebook page was taken down yesterday.

White Rock was a full production brewery and recently installed the island's only bottling machine. It made locally-inspired beers, like Wonky Donkey and Pushang, as well as the multi-award winning Ten Degrees gin.

Last year, the business won a sales contract to supply Stonegate Pub Company, which operates more than 700 pubs across the UK.

 It also had a deal with Waitrose to stock its beer and gin ranges in a number of UK stores.

The company had planned to expand overseas and grow its local offering over the next ten years, but that wasn't to be.

Jamie Toynton and Ben Rhodes of Grant Thornton have been appointed Joint Liquidators and will wind up the company's affairs.

Anyone with claims against the White Rock Brewery is asked to submit details to them before 1 September, while anyone who owes money to the brewery is required to settle their debt with the liquidators by the same date.

Those who currently possess company property can arrange return by calling 753400 or emailing corporate.recovery@gt-ci.com.
