Blakemore Fine Foods is targeting the growing interest in British beer, cider and spirits, by launching a catalogue that features more than 400 drinks sourced from across the UK.

Over 80 British distilleries, cider mills and breweries will be listed in the distributor’s new brochure, which will be circulated to 1,500 retailers and independent pubs. Key lines will also be sold into SPAR stores and the Blakemore Wholesale cash & carry estate.

“Our catalogue reflects the latest trends by showcasing traditional long-established producers such as Yorkshire’s oldest brewery, Samuel Smith, right through to relative newcomers such as Tiny Rebel, creators of Cwtch, which was recently awarded the title of Britain’s Best Beer by CAMRA,” said Fine Foods trading controller Patrice Garrigues.

The range of spirits on offer will include Penderyn Welsh Malt Whisky, Two Birds Absinthe, Chase Marmalade Vodka and Southwestern Distillery’s Cornish Pastis.

The full range can be ordered online or over the phone with a minimum order value of just £150.

“Britain now has more breweries per person than anywhere else in the world and we want to help raise the profile of these producers and give them access to a wider market,” said Blakemore Fine Foods commercial manager Caoire Blakemore.

“The craftsmanship demonstrated by the manufacturers that we have listed is of the highest quality and helps explain why consumer demand for such products is growing faster than ever before.”
