Kingsland Drinks Group is a premier independent UK creator and supplier of wines and spirits, specialising in providing a complete drinks category solution. Kingsland Drinks Group, comprising Kingsland Drinks Limited and Ten Locks, services UK supermarkets, independent drinks shops, hospitality, wholesalers, convenience retail, and the travel and export sectors.
The firm has over 100 brands from around the world in its portfolio, including The Hidden Sea, Baron De Ley Rioja and Corte Molino Prosecco, RTD brands Vin Crowd and Mix Up, as well as Spanish red wine Campaneo.
The company is proudly powered by its people; it became employee owned in 2021, placing its 400+ strong team in the driving seat, all working with a real stake in the success of the business.
It was the very first company in the UK to import and fill wine in bulk and has since invested significantly in its infrastructure to create world class, industry leading capabilities at its site in Irlam, Greater Manchester. Additional production line machinery to boost its bag-in-box wine capabilities and a new canning line were added to its offering most recently, joining a carbonation line, onsite winery, high-speed bottling lines, and a laboratory focused on future-thinking and insights-driven product development.
In 2020, the firm supported the launch of sister company Ten Locks. With industry stalwart Becky Davies at the helm, the Ten Locks team is born out of hospitality and focused on creating, curating and building a premium portfolio of spirits all striving for positive change.
In 2021, Kingsland Drinks Group doubled down on its sustainability commitments with the launch of Thirsty Earth, a new, in-depth programme which includes a long-term project linked to the UN’s sustainable development goals. The initiative will set out clear and measurable targets to safeguard society, the environment and the economic health of the industry.
