Distributor BBC Spirits bringing Japanese spirits portfolio to UK

Drinks distribution company BBC Spirits is launching its portfolio of Japanese products in the UK and Republic of Ireland.

Based in Bordeaux, France, BBC Spirits - named for its founders Bogdan and Bertrand - has been trading in the wine and spirits industry for more than a decade. It exports more than 60 products to 30 countries worldwide and currently works with 15 partner distillers to promote their spirits internationally.

The company specialises in Japanese gin, rum, whisky, vodka, sake, shochu, brandy, liqueurs and awamori. Its portfolio includes Kurayoshi whisky, gin brand Etsu and Eiko vodka.

To support its expansion BBC Spirits has appointed a new sales director, Greg Kimber. He has 15 years' experience in sales and marketing in the leisure, hospitality and drinks industries.

Of his appointment, Greg said: "I am delighted to be joining such a fantastic company with world-class products. With the increase in consumer demand for Japanese spirits and the Tokyo Olympics taking place in Summer 2021, what better time is there to be talking about Japanese products? Watch this space as Japan has just landed."

President and CEO of BBC Spirits, Bogdan Tanasoiu, said: "Every year we extend our distribution network across the globe and we are establishing ourselves as a specialist in our field, selecting the most suitable channels for brands in different countries. We are extremely happy to have Greg on board as his experience and expertise in the spirits sector will allow us to successfully launch our brands and business in the UK and Ireland this September."
