About Us


Our History

Imbibe Melrose has been in the drinks distribution business for over 30 years. We started out as Gandhi Wine Suppliers Ltd in 1985 and as the company steadily grew and expanded into multiple markets, we became Imbibe Drinks (from Latin “imbibere” – to drink in). In 2012 we merged with Melrose Wines, and today we take pride in being London’s premier drinks supplier.

We have an effective team at Imbibe Melrose with the experience and “can do” attitude to look after our customers. From advising on quantities, sourcing a specific product, providing gift sets, or simply delivering on time, this is our customer service proposition.

Our network and relationships with the major brewers and brand owners means we can offer choice and variety in our range of beers, wines, spirits, and drinks. We understand that our customers have a commercial need, so our range is designed to suit all budgets and requirements – we will help you “crunch” the numbers to ensure your business can grow profitability. We are also the sole agent for several respected brands such as Sylvius Gin, Prosecco Fiorita, Bavarian Gold
and Mongoose Premium Beer.

Our many years in the industry means we will stay on trend so we can recommend and provide helpful hints along the way to create and/or refresh the perfect drinks menu for your establishment. We are large enough to be competitively priced, but small enough to still offer a personal and attentive service.

What We Care About

Looking after our customers is at the heart of everything we do. Our aim is to:

  • Provide excellent service to our customers every time, on price, quality and delivery
  • Develop our product range and relationships with the breweries and brand owners
  • Promote our Company’s reputation as a trusted, reliable supplier to the on-trade business

We have a small, dedicated team ready to do their best for you.

“Imbibe offer a fantastic range of products paired with top customer service”
