The Hampshire based brewery announced earlier this year that it had entered into administration.
However, the company has closed permanently, with its Companies House page now listing its status as “Liquidation”.

Red Cat Brewing’s goodbye post on Facebook said: “Thank you and goodbye….
“Red Cat Brewing has entered administration, but I would really like to thank everyone that has been with us along the way, and I mean EVERYONE… customers, staff, friends, family and the awesome open day crew, you have all been amazing during the journey.
“However, like many others, unfortunately we didn’t make it.
“We have had some amazing times along the way, we have had some great laughs and made memories that will stay forever, not to mention making some great friends. We may have enjoyed a pint or two along the way.
“I really hope that everyone out there remembers Red Cat fondly, and I hope we made at least one beer that you enjoyed.
“Thank you ALL once again.”

The business has appointed administrators for Babylon Group Holdings and one of its subsidiaries, Babylon Partners.The business and assets, including the GP at Hand app, have been sold to US digital healthcare company eMed Healthcare.
Administrators who are working with the Babylon Group said the sale “secured the future of the Babylon UK operations, which provides technology-driven preventative healthcare services, alongside other traditional healthcare activities, with over 700,000 patients having had access to Babylon’s platforms in the UK”.
They also added “The appointment of administrators over Babylon’s UK business to facilitate a sale to eMed ensures the least possible disruption for Babylon users, which should continue to operate as normal.”
