Bloomsbury Wine & Spirit Company Profile

The Dagenham, Essex-based retailer focused mostly on wholesale wines and spirits during its 17-year operation, but also offered the occasional whisky bottling of its own.

Most were single casks at natural strength with the occasional vatting of two casks, and many of its bottlings now fetch considerable sums when they appear at auction – a testament to the quality of this bottler.

Most releases were for the UK market although some were also released for Japan.

The company also produced Bloomsbury 45 Lemon and Orange gins under its own label.

Bloomsbury Wine & Spirit Company History

The company began trading in October 1993 under the understandably short-lived title of the ‘Superoften Company Ltd’ – it was quickly updated to Bloomsbury Wine & Spirit the following month.

The majority of its whisky bottlings were produced between 2000 and 2005 and although they received praise from the whisky community, Bloomsbury Wine & Spirit dissolved in 2010.
