When was AU Vodka founded?
AU Vodka was founded in 2015.
According to reports, friends Charlie, then 19, and Jackson, then 21, decided to see if they could make their own vodka, so they made one and called it Au Vodka.
They initially produced 2,000 bottles and launched the newly formed drink locally in a few bars in their hometown of Swansea.
Word of mouth around the city gave it a solid reputation and garnered a lot of attention thanks to its distinctive, eye-catching golden bottle.
After Charlie Sloth’s involvement in the brand, AU Vodka caught celebrity attention and the brand took off – today millions of bottles are sold every year.
What is Charlie and Jackson’s net worth?
Au Vodka founders, Charlie and Jackson, who were named the web’s most popular vodka brand by The Spirits Business, entered the Times’ 2022 Young Rich List, ranking 24th with an estimated fortune of £40m each.
Charlie is also the heir to a fortune as his father Martin Morgan is the owner of Morgan’s Hotel and the director of Swansea City.
He is believed to have a net worth of around £65million.
Where is AU Vodka made?
According to AU Vodka’s official website, “Each batch of Au Vodka’s premium vodka starts with the finest grain, grown in the heart of the English countryside, which is then blended with pristine spring water before being filtered.”
However, the bottle is made in Italy.
The website explains: “The bottling process, metallized by hand in Italy, has taken four years of craftsmanship to perfection.
“Each bottle of Au Vodka features a unique metallization and uses the finest pewter labels, sourced deep in the European hills.
“This process means that each bottle has subtle differences, making each bottle of Au Vodka unique.”
