It all began I when traveled with the British Royal Navy to Tokyo where I tasted the hugely popular alcoholic drink Chuhai.

I loved the taste but back in England there was nothing on the market quite like it and shipping the drink from Japan was out of the question.

Just when things were coming together, the pandemic hit. With restaurants and stores shutting their doors, delivering Chu Lo to thirsty customers proved a challenge.

In no time at all,
Chu Lo was back on track, featuring on TV, winning awards and teaming up with major restaurant franchises.
