LOCAL VALUES, GLOBAL AMBITIONS

Halewood Wines & Spirits has grown from a small a start-up, to becoming the UK’s largest independent drinks manufacturer and distributor by volume.

In the last three years, the company has embarked upon a huge transformational change. It has created an artisanal spirits and craft beer portfolio via acquisition and organic growth. This has propelled the business forward by focusing on core objectives; building distributional strength, driving vertical integration, identifying trends, rationalisation of low margin brands and creating consumer activations with the core purpose of building strong brand equity. Investment in production capability, especially distilling, brewing and sourcing, has stimulated development of higher quality products with a point of difference.

In creating a portfolio of artisanal spirits and craft beers, Halewood’s core growth focus has been on creating innovative, diverse and exciting brands for consumers. The company’s mission is to be a lead incubator of brands with each demonstrating strong provenance, heritage and dedication to quality.

In addition to the UK, the company has a fast growing international business. Its products are present in over 100 countries around the world. The company has offices and operates its own distribution network in South Africa, China, Thailand, the Republic of Ireland and Romania.
