Who We Are
Established in 1978, Amathus is a London based specialist drinks importer, distributor and retailer offering a complete drinks solution for the UK. In addition to our online shop, we have four retail stores located in the vibrant and trendy areas around London, offering you access to exclusive events, masterclasses, click and collect service and free local delivery to enjoy as part of your shopping experience.
With our product lines in excess of 3000, we are able to supply a wide range of well known brands. However, our real point of differentiation from other drinks’ distributors are our exclusive agency brands which range from premium spirits such as Flor de Caña rums to Joseph Cartron liqueurs and boutique wine producers such as Idiom and Domain Georges Michel.
Our purchasing and account teams have significant expertise in sourcing and providing product training on our specialist agency brands. We are proud to be the drinks supplier of choice for many prestigious on-trade clients such as Michelin starred restaurants, 5 star hotels, country gastropubs, clubs and trendy city bars. We are also increasingly supplying more specialist retail outlets with our premium agency spirits and growing wine collection.
