Kingsland Drinks lands Cellier des Dauphins

Published:  23 September, 2020

Kingsland Drinks has been announced as the exclusive UK distribution partner for leading Rhône producer Cellier des Dauphins.

The producer, which is a leading AoC brand in France, works across several major appellations in the Rhône, including Côtes du Rhône, Côtes du Rhône Villages and Crus such as Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Vinsobres and Cairanne.

Cellier des Dauphins will still deal direct with a number of existing customers, while Kingsland Drinks will take on some existing accounts, including current stockists Tesco and Majestic, plus all new off-trade accounts.

“We are delighted to add Cellier des Dauphins to our portfolio of high-quality producers. It is steeped in history and at the same time, open to innovation and exciting product and brand development, which makes it a perfect fit for Kingsland Drinks,” said Adam Marshall, buying controller at Kingsland Drinks.

“Our research shows that the Cellier des Dauphins brands have, by far, the youngest and most affluent shoppers of the top French brands, presenting a real opportunity to bring something engaging to the French category.”

In August this year Kingland brought Becky Davies on board from Mangrove Spirits, to head up a new spirits subsidiary to focus on innovation.
