Part Time Rangers, who produce premixed low-sugar and low-calorie drinks and donate a portion of the profits to animal conservation initiatives, has been bought by 15-year-old American spirits company Brown-Forman.
Founders William and Oliver Dean will remain with the company and its mission and commitment to charitable support of wildlife conservation and environmental preservation project will continue.
William and Oliver started Part Time Rangers from their family kitchen in 2018. Since then, it has grown, and now offers a range of six spirits that support organisations that make a real difference to wildlife and the environment. Drinks include the White Rhino (gin, lemon, sparkling water and apple); Brown Kiwi (whisky, ginger, lime & sparkling water); African Elephant (vodka, lime & sparkling water) and Great White Shark (white rum, apple, lime & sparkling water).
"When we started Part Time Rangers from our family kitchen two years ago, we hoped there was a community out there who shared our passion for good-tasting natural drinks that helped make the planet a better place," the Deans say. "Our growth since then has exceeded our wildest dreams, and the sale of the business to Brown-Forman will now allow our mission to grow.
"Our message to the amazing community of Part Time Rangers is simple: we're committed with our new owner's support to making our community and its work stronger and better than ever before."
