About Berry Brothers & Rudd

With two Royal Warrants, 300 years of history and eight Masters of Wine, Berry Brothers & Rudd is Britain’s original wine and spirit merchant.

Services including a Wine Club, Cellar Plan, Tutored Tastings, Private Wine Events and a Wine School, we provide the closest link between those who make the wine and those who drink it.

They offer a selection of over 4,000 bottles to wine and spirit-lovers in the UK, Hong Kong and Japan through our stores, warehouses and outlets, and to people across the world through our award-winning website.

While they embrace progress, they also value our traditions. They are still run by members of the Berry and Rudd families and continue to supply the British Royal Family, as we have done since the reign of King George III.

Most importantly, they still believe that everything you should look for in a wine or spirit comes down to one simple question: ‘Is it good to drink?’
