Drinks deal is rekindled

TWO drinks firms are to ‘revive’ their distribution partnership in the UK.

The deal means that international wine, spirit and cider producer, Distell, will return to being the supplier for Angostura Holdings Ltd within the UK on-trade.

The Angostura portfolio includes the company’s Aromatic Bitters as well as its premium rum range.

Fraser Thornton, Distell’s European managing director, said: “I am delighted we have been able to re-acquaint ourselves with Angostura to distribute their exceptional rums and bitters portfolio throughout the UK, supported by events such as the Angostura Cocktail Challenge.

“This further strengthens the range of brands we have to offer the trade and consumers.”
