About Us

Barmans was formed in 1977 and originally started out as an optic refurbishing company. Always looking forwards, we developed several new products for the licensed trade including the multi million selling rota price system. During the eighties Barmans became one of the UK's largest wholesalers of bar and catering supplies and has been at the fore front of IT developments with one of the first online ordering systems for the licensed trade. In 2000 we launched our award winning home drinking website drinkstuff.com bringing the latest innovations in drinking concepts to the home user. This year has seen Barmans celebrate it's 38th year in business with our widest ever range of products online. So it is with great pleasure that we have re-launched our original Barmans site to encompass our growing product ranges and we hope that you will soon be able to find everything you are looking for on this site.

Happy shopping!

Regards The Barmans Team
