2017-05-11 00:13:10

Whilst it is true that a lot of the small companies listed on AIM are total junk, there are also some gems amongst them, and I think that Distil (DIS) falls into that category.

I am not a great lover of rum but the US market is much bigger in both absolute and relative to population terms than the British one. It matters.

Buy Distil at 0.8p

2015-05-10 06:00:26

Investment Case: Formerly Blavod Wines & Spirits, this is a company which has been around for ages but has thus far failed to deliver. However, having joined the board as a non-executive in 2010, Don Goulding - previously a senior executive and lastly UK Managing Director at industry giant Diageo - took the full reins in late 2011 and has led the company to exit distribution for third parties to focus on developing owned brands. Although not yet reflected in the financial results, this looks a move of some promise and the shares at a 0.8p offer price, capitalising the company at sub £3.5 million, are a buy.


Distil is looking to cash in on the American Market

2015-04-10 03:55:23

Generally I tend to stay away from the really tiny AIM shares, but recently one has caught my eye that I think has potential.
