The British Bottle Company is the first company to specialise in the export of premium British drinks.
Founded by food and drink entrepreneur Red Johnson, the company represents a portfolio of suppliers in three categories including English Sparkling Wine.
Red is supported by an Advisory Board that includes leading names from the drinks industry including his father, wine writer Hugh Johnson, wine industry veteran and English wine specialist Mike Paul, author and spirits expert Ian Wisniewski and beer expert and author, Pete Brown.
Together, they have assembled a portfolio of twelve of Britain’s most exciting and respected drinks brands; including ‘World Champion English Sparkling Wine’ as judged at the Champagne and Sparkling Wine World Championships, Digby Fine English and Camel Valley, produced by Sam Lindo, who was nominated for IWC Sparkling Winemaker of the Year 2014.
Based in Hampshire, The British Bottle Company provides a full service export facility for its suppliers including market analysis, distributor matching, marketing, logistics and administration.
Red says: “Even large producers can struggle to find the resources and expertise to manage export effectively. We essentially act as the in-house export team by managing the entire process, from strategy and sales to the nuts and bolts of export. It’s all we do and we are out there in the market representing our suppliers all the time”
Camel Valley winemaker Sam Lindo says: “We are absolutely delighted to be working with The British Bottle Company. This unique approach is exactly what our fledgling industry needs to help us pool resources to enter new export markets. Red has a great team with a lot of experience in all aspects of export.”
