Blakemore Fine Foods has released a new edition of its Best of British alcohol catalogue.
The brochure, which was printed in May, features more than 470 British ales, ciders, wines and spirits from more than 75 distilleries, cider mills and breweries from across the UK.
“The UK off-trade beer market is now worth £3.7bn, with craft and premium ales outperforming standard lines by 32.5%,” said Blakemore Fine Foods commercial manager Patrice Garrigues.
“As a result, 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.”
Blakemore Fine Foods said the new catalogue features an increased number of single-pick spirits to enable retailers to try more lines without ordering a vast amount of stock.
It also features a number of new gin lines to reflect the popularity of the spirit and the rise of UK craft gins.
“We are doing what nobody else is currently doing in the marketplace by bringing such a comprehensive range of quality British alcohol together, with customers able to order bulk, gift packs or single-pick bottles,” said Garrigues.
The catalogue will be distributed to 1,500 retailers and some lines will be sold into Blakemore Wholesale’s cash & carry estate.
The entire range is available to order online or by phone.
