Berczy Bulletin: The December Edition
So! Here we are, it's the last day of the year and we're reminiscing about what a wild and wonderful year it's been. It's been a fast, and furious one here at Berczy, but the whole team were unanimous in it being one of the best! We've had ups, and we've had downs, but it's certainly been unforgettable. To round off a truly memorable 2022, we thought we'd give you an insight into how the team has seen the year, with all our fun-filled Berczy memories! A big thanks to all of you who read our monthly Berczy Bulletin and we wish you a fantastic NYE, from all of us over here at Berczy HQ.
Nick, chief motivator.
2022 has been an amazing year for Berczy and our team, but not without its ups and downs! The biggest highlight for me was probably Dragons' Den back in February which felt like a once in a lifetime opportunity, although it definitely didn't help with work/life balance! Aside from that, our launch party over in the US was amazing - bringing together friends, family and customers all into one place felt really special, whilst Taste of London this summer, was as fun as it always is. Bring on 2023.

As ever, life at Berczy has been lots of fun, especially our team socials from axe-throwing to nights at Boxpark. That being said, without a doubt the highlight of 2022 for me has been meeting you, our lovely Berczy-drinkers in person. Be that at one of our Planet Organic sampling events or the opportunity to meet our French customers on my exciting trip to Paris at SIAL 2022, it’s always amazing to say hello and to see cans in hands!

2022 has been massive for Berczy! I spent an amazing 5 months in New Jersey & New York, leading our expansion to the US and met a wonderful bunch of new Berczy mega-fans. We had an incredible launch party on the 'Jersey Shore' in June, which was so much fun, and the culmination of a year of work to get Berczy into the United States. We're now in all the major liquor store chains in New Jersey and have our eyes set on some amazingly vibrant new regions to expand into. As we close out 2022, we're hard at work making tweaks to the brand, and inventing delicious new recipes for the UK & US in 2023. Stay tuned.
Georgie, marketing wizz.
It's been another memorable year at Berczy, and we certainly packed a lot in! Highlights for me were launching our new 4 packs, hosting a cocktail masterclass in Wales and seeing our billboards live in New Jersey! I also loved getting involved with UKHarvest, our charity partner in the UK, and volunteering at some of their events in the kitchen.
As we head into 2023, we have been working hard to create some new delicious flavours and I can't wait for you to try them next year!
Matt, token American.
It's hard to say anything other than this year has been a rollercoaster but I could not be more proud of what we have accomplished in 2022. This is just the beginning and I can not wait to see what 2023 has to bring. I want to thank every single person who has supported us through this journey by simply just enjoying a Berczy with good company. Seeing that is what makes me happiest!
