Equity Crowdfunding lets you invest in early stage companies that aren’t listed on the Australian Stock Exchange. After a recent and exciting change to the legislation, it’s now available to all Australian over the age of 18. The West Winds Gin is all about two things: our Gin and our customers. Therefore, raising capital through equity crowdfunding was the natural choice as we wanted to give family, friends and supporters the opportunity to join us on this journey.
If you’re not familiar with our story, we’re a merry crew who, since 2010, having been making damn fine Gin in Western Australia. We sought new frontiers using Australian botanicals, with a selection of other more traditional ingredients. Over the seven years we’ve crafted different Gins that have won double Gold three times at the San Francisco International Spirits Competition and Australian Champion Gin three times. We seek perfection and practice precision but we’re adventurous enough to bend the rules along the way, resulting in a range of Gins to rival the finest in the world.
The money that is invested through this capital raise will go towards growing and marketing the business domestically and internationally. Investment starts from as little as A$500 and if you’re a retail investor can go up to $10,000. Sophisticated investors are not limited in their investment.
