05 Jan Whisky Frames taste success
Kristen and Ross Hunter, co-founders of Whisky Frames, which creates photo frames out of reclaimed whisky casks, have generated over £30,000 turnover and sold almost 3,000 frames in their first four months of trading.
The company was born when Kristen brought a photo frame made from a reclaimed whisky barrel back from the USA to use to remember the couple’s dog Tess. The husband and wife duo saw a gap in the UK market for Whisky Frames and joined the Entrepreneurial Spark business accelerator programme in August 2016 to develop their idea.
After attending the Scottish Trade Show recommended by fellow Chiclets at Entrepreneurial Spark Powered by Royal Bank of Scotland’s Edinburgh Hatchery, Ross and Kristen secured over 50 new stockists, including Edinburgh Airport and Jenners.
Working with Enabler Gill Rattray has helped the couple to considerably grow and scale their business, which has recently hired three new employees to cope with demand. Ross and Kristen are aiming to double revenue annually over the next five years using a #GoDo mindset, targeting international markets to continue business growth.
