The largest independent wholesaler of beers, wines and spirits in the UK.

Established in 1979, LWC has grown from a small start-up to the “fastest growing privately owned drinks company in the UK."

We consider our success the product of our philosophy: not to sell brands on behalf of brand owners, but to buy on behalf of our customers, providing the best service available in the industry throughout every facet of our business, and making a real difference to yours.

After over 40 years of experience, we have developed the expertise to provide the best service in the industry.

With over 8000 different product lines and similarly over 13,500 on-trade customers, LWC delivers the broadest range and greatest service available in the UK drinks industry. We provide fantastic support services which enable our customers to not only maximise their sales but also provide their own customers with a higher-quality experience. This is possible thanks to our team of 80 dedicated account managers, who can advise you on how to amplify your business potential whilst also eradicating any issues you may face.
