Stormhoek "In Administration"

Stormhoek, famous for their unconventional marketing via blogging (not to mention an easy drinking, modern style Pinotage) have collapsed "into administration" reports UK's Off Licence News after cash-flow problems.

The administrator is said to be looking for a buyer for the company as a going concern but all ten off the staff, including founder Nick Dymoke-Marr, failed to get Christmas pay cheques and were handed redundancy notices this week.

A truly sad setback for such an innovative business. I wish all the staff the best for 2008.


  1. wow - that is interesting news indeed. i hope everything sorts itself out.

  2. Thanks Peter - all the best for 2008 to you too and thanks for your support, best Catherine
