Their award-winning portfolio offers you a fantastic range that we firmly believe will add interest to your drinks selection, enable you to create a unique list and offer your customers something new and exciting, whilst of course still offering the value staples where needed - all at special Epicurean Club prices.

Through our partnership, we have set up some great support from wine and premium spirits, beers and soft drinks producers, with a particular focus on the latest market trends. These producers have all committed exclusive marketing and event support to the Epicurean Collection which we will amplify across our channels, all to help drive guest take-up.

A taste of Bibendum

Working with The Epicurean Club

Bibendum is excited to be working with some of the best inns in the country, helping them to curate a drinks list that excites and delights customers.

Supporting you

The Bibendum service doesn't stop at delivering great products. Our award-winning training team, in-house design team, customer marketing and market insights teams all help our customers sell better.

Market insights

Using our tools and expertise, we take data and turn it into information to make your drinks range work harder. We understand every customer who walks through your door, so you can ensure they find the right product, in the right place, at the right price, while also maximizing your profit.

Current trends

MODE, our unique trend-tracker, analyses the lists of the UK's most influential bars and restaurants to discover the hottest new wine trends before they hit the mainstream.

This gives you everything you need to know about what your customers are drinking now and how your list can best capture their imagination.

Training

Our philosophy is simple - we make wine and spirits fun, easy to understand and accessible to everyone. Our award-winning learning and development specialists are experts at designing and delivering training that works for you.

Staff are key to influencing the way wine is sold and our training team will devise bespoke programmes to educate and motivate, with the ultimate goal of increasing both sales and service levels at each venue, whilst at the same time helping with staff retention. This will be a combination of classroom based education, online modules, video content and more formal WSET education for star performers.

Customer marketing and design

Specialists in both drinks and marketing, we can support you with bespoke drinks list design, annual activation plans, merchandising and much more.

Our drinks list design service focuses on encouraging your customers to trade up to something new, exciting, delicious and more profitable. Activations offer ready to go solutions that can be tailored to each venue, combining seasonal food menus and local marketing activity.

Let us introduce you

We have chosen a few of our favourite producers to introduce you to. Whether from Britain or beyond, they all share a love for the British pub and inn and believe in its value at the heart of British culture and have offered special support to the Epicurean Collection.
