Let us introduce you to Abi, our dedicated Market Place point of contact.
"I am thrilled at the opportunity to work with The Epicurean Club and in turn some of your fantastic pubs and inns in the Collection, some of which I have been lucky enough to visit recently.
Matt, Tom and I have spent a great deal of time working with some of our very best brand owners who can all provide something special to help support your venue. As you would expect, there is a focus on British brands and current market trends along with some fun activations, all of which can help to drive your sales revenue and margin. Our products will be available to you at special Epicurean Market Place prices when you join Matthew Clark through our partnership.
I hope to meet some of you very soon!"
Matthew Clark - Customer Development Director
The greatest drinking experience naturally requires the best selection of drinks. With over 4000 different product lines, they have enough to stock your pub or inn to meet any order, whatever your request. A range of spirits are available in no short measure, from good quality house pours to the most premium. A flowing assortment of craft beers, ales and ciders and an extensive range of soft drinks. Plus a range of over 1400 carefully sourced wines have been selected with the On-Trade in mind. If they haven't got a product you are looking for, perhaps a local favourite, just ask as they will endeavour to meet your full product needs.
Together, the Epicurean Club and Matthew Clark, both believe a truly great drinking experience is also about how it is sold and served to your customer. Which is why they offer so much beyond timely supply and reliable delivery, they are also here to help with your day to day business.
