Welcome to Slake Spirits. My name is Tom and I started Slake in 2016 and today I’d like to talk to you about Slake Rewards. Everyone deserves to drink better for less. Fancy a digital gin loyalty card? Sound too good to be true? Well then, this just goes to show how much we appreciate the support of our customers and how much we love your loyalty. ❤️
Since we started selling our gin at local markets in 2016 we’ve almost exclusively relied on the good ‘word of mouth’ spread by our customers. Nothing has changed in that regard, but as we’ve grown that word has spread further and through different channels like online and social media. Often largely due to some really vocal and dedicated supporters (thank you!).
How does it work?
As a small independent distillery we’re always looking for ways to reach more discerning gin & spirit fans, particularly if we can do that through our online shop, so we can spend more time making tasty stuff in the distillery! That is why we created Slake Rewards, a digital gin loyalty card and craft gin refer a friend scheme, to encourage our customers to become Slake brand ambassadors and spread the word. It really is a win-win! *cough* CIN-CIN!
I’m really excited about our reward & referral scheme. There is a walkthrough or how to video above, but basically it’s a great way for us to say thank you for all the support we recieve from our most loyal and frequent customers and for you to help us by recommending Slake to your friends, family or followers.
The referall code link is limited to previous customers only (i.e. you have to make a purchase via our website to activate it) that have made a purchase because we want recommendations by genuine customers that love our products just as much as we do. You can also create an account during the checkout out process with just one click.
Currently the membership is limited to 100 and the idea is to reward our most loyal, vocal and frequent customers, as such inactive accounts may be removed at our discression. If there is the demand for it, we may increase the membership in the future. But at the time of recording this video, there are already 67 members. So, don’t wait too long if you’d like to join the fun! 🍸

Hello and welcome to Slake Spirits. Today I’m just going to do a quick video to show you how to sign up to our Slake Rewards program. If you go https://www.slakespirits.com and you look across on the homepage to the right hand side you’ll see that there’s this little rewards tab. If you click on that it will take you through to a page which encourages you to create an account, and you do need to create an account in order to join the rewards scheme, but by doing so you’ll earn 200 welcome points that you can spend in the online store. If you click on create account it’ll take you through to a registration page where you just pop in your username and your email and once you hit register an email will be sent from Slake to your email address.
You can click on a link in that email to set your password and you can head back to the rewards app and sign in, this will take you through to the my account page https://www.slakespirits.com/my-account/ This is where you need to go and you can also access it from a link in the footer, and basically, once you pop in those details you just created, the username or email address and the password, you can log in to your account and once you’re logged in you can you can do various things in here. You can log out for one, if you need to, but also you can you access your reward points, look at addresses that you have stored and previous orders, but the main thing is if you look across to the right now you’ll see that the rewards tab actually has the points displayed on it that you’ve accrued and so now you’re ready to use it.
You can click on the reward tab and pop in here where you can actually earn extra points from doing various things like subscribing to our newsletter telling us how you like to drink your Slake gin, watching videos and bit of social media, so you can earn some points doing that. You’ll get a hundred points or every ten pounds you spend in the shop, so that’s effectively a 10% discount for just being a member of the reward scheme. You can also refer friends and family or followers and with a referral code that will be generated here as soon as you’ve made a purchase on the store. The idea is just that we want people to to refer from their own experience, having actually tried the products. So, hopefully you’ll enjoy it and you’ll want to tell your friends or family about it and this is how you do that.
There’ll be a little code and links at the bottom for you to share on Facebook or various other channels and, basically, it offers 10% off the first order for your friend or family member and you actually accrue some points as well that you can spend in the shop. There’s no limit to this, you can refer as many people as you want and it’s a great way to get the word out. Most important though is the claim tab, this is where you go to spend your points. So, we’ve got options for immediate redemption for coupons which would generate a code to use in the checkout or if you’ve got enough points you can just redeem them straightaway for a product as well. So, that’s it, that’s how it works and I hope see you in the shop soon and thanks for listening!
