Today's Group member HT & Co Drinks has posted a 24.5% jump in full-year sales to £242.9m.

The London-based alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks wholesaler said the increase in the year to 30 September 2010 was down to a "buoyant" drinks market. However, pre-tax profits fell from £4.2m to £4m due to an increase in distribution and marketing, finance and admin costs, according to accounts at Companies House.

"We expect the alcoholic drinks market to remain steady for the financial year 2011," added MD and owner Prakash Thakrar.
