Going live way back in the 20th century, drinkstuff.com is proud to be one of the first retail companies that took advantage of the World Wide Web way back in 1998, building our own bespoke e-commerce platform.
Our parent company Barmans Ltd. has been trading in pub wares nationally since 1977, with drinkstuff launching a unique idea to bring pub and bar related items to both domestic and trade users. We supply over 12,000 bar products and classic and creative tableware, suitable for domestic use and professional settings, ready to around the UK, and worldwide.
In June of 2011 we launched our own brand, bar@drinkstuff, which now consists of around 400 diverse products including tableware, cocktail sets, bar equipment and mini fridges. The bar@drinkstuff line of products continues to expand, with innovative new products regularly being sourced and added to the range.
As the company has grown, changes have been made within the drinkstuff building, with a move to a bigger office in 2012 to accommodate more staff, and the addition of a new packing room to meet the increase in parcels being dispatched from our HQ in Melbourn, Hertfordshire.
To allow our business to meet our expanding demands, we purchased external storage space in Mildenhall, Suffolk at the end of 2015 giving us an extra 85,500 sq ft. This combines with the 31,500 sq ft we already have in Melbourn, giving us an impressive 117,000 sq ft to stock even more product lines.
Our annual turnover for 2015/16 peaked at £10 million, giving us the best year in the company’s history, ensuring we can look ahead at the coming year with excitement at further expansion.
Whether you need some branded pint glasses for a birthday present, or you need to kit out your new home bar with various sundries, drinkstuff.com is your one-stop shop. Even if you are a commercial bar owner, we will happily cater to your needs as we welcome bulk trades orders from all over the country.
