Having just announced the appointment of Claire Smith-Warner and teased at a spring launch date for new products, now seemed as good a time as any to catch up with SeedlipIt’s hard to believe the non-alcoholic spirit, founded by Ben Branson, is only two years old. To date, Garden 108 and Spice 94 have graced more than 100 Michelin-starred restaurants and many of the best bars in the world. It has reigned supreme. But, some companies – large and small – look set to disrupt the status quo.
LoneWolf has joined the Global Brands’ pack in a £40m distribution deal which looks set to make it a ‘massive success in the premium-end of the on-trade’. The distilling arm of BrewDog chose Global Brands because of its nationwide relationship with UK bars, and has lofty ambitions to increase sales by 100,000 cases over the next two years.
Known for its prestigious university and its magnificent cathedral, Durham is not the first place you’d associate with whisky. One distillery, and a £195m city regeneration, might be about to change all that. Already known for its gin and vodka offerings, Durham Distillery is adding a – you guessed it – whisky to its portfolio. Much of the detail is under wraps, but owner Jon Chadwick did sit down with us to discuss the ‘first’ whisky to be produced in the north east of England.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
