Importer and distributor of the world’s most prestigious craft beer, The BottleShop has bars in London, Margate, and Canterbury. With a current annual revenue of £3.1m having seen £1m annual growth since 2015, the company aims to invest in a fully refrigerated supply chain for higher value imports.
The BottleShop is an importer and distributor of craft beer with bars in London, Margate & Canterbury. We distribute some of the world's’ most prestigious breweries including Omnipollo, Green Flash and Modern Times. This has given us a fantastic platform to develop - with our turnover growing by £1m annually since 2015.
Many American breweries create beers designed to be refrigerated, treating beer like milk, cheese or fruit – it must be kept cool throughout its life. This investment will allow us to refrigerate our London warehouse and offer zero degrees of compromise for our customers.
This will allow us to gain access to more prestigious, high-value beer as many US breweries won’t export without this assurance. We are in discussions with more internationally renowned breweries – but can only import their products when we meet their distribution standards.
Our customer list represents the UK’s most progressive companies including Byron Hamburgers, BrewDog, Curzon Cinemas and Beer Merchants. We aim to open a warehouse/bar in Manchester later this year to directly serve the North of England.
Our Bermondsey tap-room has hosted Mikkeller and Omnipollo tap-takeovers which almost doubled our average 2016 weekly takings earlier this year. We continue to develop a strong customer base and we have plans to open more retail sites to build upon this momentum.
