The Buyer
Alliance Wine

Alliance Wine was founded in Ayrshire, Scotland in 1984 by Chris Bouteiller, and remains home to their headquarters and warehousing. From the outset, the mission of ‘creating a better world of wine’ has been at its core.

Today they are one of the UK’s leading, independently owned suppliers of wine to the on-trade and independent sector; led by directors Fergal Tynan MW, Miriam Spiers and Giles Cooke MW.

Importing wines from over 20 countries around the world and representing over 200 producers. They also have a successful stable of winemaking projects in Spain, France, Chile and the acclaimed ‘Thistledown Wines’ in Australia.

Alliance Wine works directly with the on-trade in London & Scotland, and the independent sector throughout the UK. In addition they have a thriving international customer base. Its buying team has over 60 years of combined experience in the trade, seeking out individual and inspiring producers, with a focus on organic and wineries adopting a more sustainable approach.

“We believe that all decisions in making and selling wine should be fair and caring. Making the best wine possible with the least intervention is only the start. It is not only about the environment. It is also about ensuring beneficial relationships for all involved, respecting people, and working with an innate sense of integrity.”
