Master of Malt
Master of Malt is a multi-award-winning online drinks retailer that uses advanced technology to empower its passionate band of spirits lovers and beer nuts to deliver the world’s best drinks buying experience. We (re-)started MoM because we were fed up buying from companies who were poor, knew it, and didn’t care.
We were fed up with all the things it seems you have to accept when dealing with online businesses – unanswered emails, being passed from pillar to post by an IVR system that seems designed to make you hang up, and policies which ensure that when you finally do get through to someone, they are powerless to help you. We were fed up with being treated as if we didn’t matter, by people who didn’t care..

Berkmann Wine Cellars
Berkmann Wine Cellars is the UK’s leading independent agent/wholesaler. We supply the country’s restaurants and retailers with an unbeatable range, from household names like Duboeuf and Antinori to the most recherché small producers.
With national buying power and four regional branches, we combine competitive pricing with local knowledge, wherever your business is based. The company was founded in 1964 in order to supply Joseph Berkmann’s group of restaurants with Bordeaux, Burgundy and Beaujolais – this last being so successful that Berkmann was awarded the exclusive agency for Georges Duboeuf in 1972.
Duboeuf has since been joined by an all-star cast of agency suppliers, and the portfolio has expanded to over 1,000 wines and spirits from all around the world. In 1982, the restaurants were sold, and the wine business was set on the path of expansion.
While the focus was initially on London, 1987 saw the acquisition of Pagendam Pratt in Yorkshire, giving the north of England access to our portfolio without sacrificing the benefits of local service. This has proved a successful model, with Chippenham in Wiltshire being established in 1997 and Churchill Vintners in Birmingham being added in 2007.
As a family-owned company with roots in the restaurant trade, our goal remains the same as it always has been: to supply wines of outstanding character and typicity that are made to be drunk with food. Our vision is to develop our business and our range without compromising these values, and we choose to work with suppliers who share this philosophy, most of which are family-run themselves..

Veeno was born: a place where everyone could enjoy great wines and the most authentic Spuntini – platters of meats, cheeses and other appetisers imported from strictly selected Italian producers.
