Distant Lands

In Search Of The Perfect Flavour

Distant Lands began back in early 2019 after founders Ed Read & Sam Adamson joined forces to source and distribute some of the world’s best independent craft drinks across the UK.

Ed’s extensive background in beer & wine wholesale, and Sam’s experience in hospitality and operations made them perfectly placed to identify what they wanted in a great drinks distributor. Flavour and quality to the fore and a passion to build relationships between our suppliers and our great trade customers. We aim to create long term partnerships built on friendships and the love of the product.

From supporting brands on our social media, to events, collabs and tours we aim to bridge the gap between brands and trade. All with a personable and understanding touch.

We have a national distribution network across the entire UK so rest assured, your delicious drinks will be sent to you with the utmost care as soon as you need them. We’d love to chat, do drop us a line

We supply into all manner of channels from the food and drink on and off trade, small independents to larger groups as well the digital domain. Need curation? No problem, we’re happy to chat about how we can build, maintain and service your taps, fridges and shelves in the best possible way.

We believe in servicing the best quality drinks into the market at the best possible price.
