Tipple Box founder Sonny Charles has been named Young Entrepreneur of the Year at the Buchanan Business Awards.

The event recognises some of the best micro businesses in Edinburgh and culminated with an award ceremony at the Royal Bank of Scotland Conference Centre at Gogarburn.

Established by Capital City Partnership, the awards celebrate the legacy of the late Tom Buchanan who was chair and convener of the Economy Committee of the City of Edinburgh Council.

Tipple Box was established in 2014 delivering cocktail and premium small-batch spirit boxes to your door.

The kits allow you to overcome the challenges of cocktail making at home by providing everything you need to create the perfect drink.

With almost 10,000 boxes delivered across the UK to-date, Tipple Box was recently named as the UK’s number one cocktail kit by The Independent, alongside its previous award wins including the Scottish EDGE Young EDGE winner.

Speaking of the Buchanan Awards win, Tipple Box Founder Sonny Charles said: “We’re absolutely delighted to have been awarded the Young Entrepreneur of the Year award. None of what we’ve achieved would have been possible without our amazing customers and supporters who have helped us build something really special. We are still growing and I want to take Tipple Box to the next level as I know we can build something extraordinary.”

Following its recent successes, Tipple Box has launched an equity crowdfunding campaign to support the growth of the business to allow the introduction of new products while adding essential team members.

Tipple Box is aiming to raise £80,000 via Crowdcube, the world’s largest equity crowdfunding platform.

Investors can join the campaign from as little as £10 to invest in one of the UK’s most exciting and innovative businesses.

Each level of investment features various rewards, ranging from cocktails for life to Class A shares and voting rights.
