Wine and spirits business The Waverley Group is merging with on-trade drinks wholesaler The Beer Seller to create one supplier serving the whole drinks trade.

The two operations, which are both owned by Scottish Courage, will be known as Waverley TBS and will be headed by Jeff Jamet, The Beer Seller’s former MD.

Scottish Courage took on the Beer Seller when it bought Bulmers last year and had been expected to sell it on.
