What We Do

‘Our business is based on a passion for great British craft drinks and an ethos of supporting both small, craft producers and independent stockists across our region.’

Richard Chamberlain - Founder & MD

The Craft Drink Co is a drinks supply business with a simple aim – to wholesale and deliver outstanding British drinks to our customers, and to dedicate our efforts to helping our trade customers serve their customers and communities to the best of their ability.

We are focused on working with British producers exclusively. Our ethos is to find amazing drinks that can be supported and celebrated not only for their impeccable taste and creative branding, but also for their locality and origin. We believe provenance and quality matter in equal amounts and that the brands we catalogue will add a quality dimension to any drink offering (menu or retail shelf) and will help businesses stand apart from the competition.

We enable both retail (off-trade) and hospitality (on-trade) buyers to access a breadth of craft drinks through a single, efficient distribution point, ensuring suppliers and buyers can build and enjoy a lasting and commercially successful relationship.

Our dedicated team of salespeople, warehouse operatives and drivers strive continually, to ensure our customers’ needs are met in the most professional way. As an independent business with a close-knit team, we worked together to help and advise our customers and drink producers alike. When mistakes are made, we have the honesty and determination to fix them fast. Overall, we seek to be a highly reliable and friendly element with the tri-partnership of producer, wholesaler and trade buyer.

Our Drinks Catalogue

We continuously strive to find the best drinks, adding them to our ever-expanding catalogue. We have curated a range of superb English beers, ciders, wines, spirits and soft drinks from some outstanding producers, all of whom are featured here on our website. Each month we offer a selection of price promotions to encourage our customers to explore the catalogue further, and to help boost their sales and profit on return.
