What We Do

‘Our business is based on a passion for craft drinks and an ethos of supporting small, craft producers and independent stockists.’

Richard Chamberlain - Founder & MD

Quality matters, even in a simple bottle of drink.

Established in 2014, The Craft Drink Co. has gone from a small start-up to a thriving and successful distribution business. We consider our success the product of our philosophy; to dedicate our time and efforts to help you serve your customers and communities to the best of your ability. We do not retail but we help you to retail.

We believe in supporting all things British and most importantly, local. Our ethos is to find a drink that can be supported and celebrated not only for its impeccable taste and creative branding, but also for its locality and origin.

We believe that the drinks we distribute add a quality dimension to any drink offering and will help businesses stand apart from the competition. We help brands serve a wider geographical region along with providing a service to the immediate local area.

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.

We do not charge a listing fee which provides us with complete impartiality and an increasing depth of range and will buy on behalf of our customers in relation to their requirements, their budget and range. Our dedicated team of warehouse operatives and drivers will ensure customer needs are met in a professional and timely manner. As an independent business with a close-knit team, we have the capability and capacity to act quickly and decisively and will do all we can to assist both producer and customer requirements.

Our Drinks Catalogue

We continuously strive to find the next great drinks brand and will therefore always showcase an ever-expanding catalogue. We distribute drinks across the spectrum including beer, cider, wine, RTD’s spirits and soft drinks. Each month we offer a series of new drinks and price promotions on selected varieties to help you boost your sales and the interest.

Our Customers
Our approach to drinks distribution is refreshingly modern and relevant, designed to deliver real benefits through an effective partnership between many different types of suppliers, buyers and us the distributor. Can we supply you?

Our Business

We handle sales, invoicing and delivery from our base in Bourton on the Water, situated in the North Cotswolds. We continuously strive to make it both easy and cost effective for you to stock great craft brands through one trade supplier. We know that you will not always wish to purchase high volumes of drink and therefore our minimum order value is £100, enabling you to manage volumes to suit your budget, storage capacity and trends within the community.
