Our portfolio of brands includes products from the multinational drinks groups Beam Global, Accolade Wines, Rémy Cointreau, Edrington, McGuigan, Villa Maria, Corona Extra, Corona Light and several others and we are continually adding to our offering, exploring new markets and new products.”

Indeed, the company has just landed the Irish distribution rights to the premium German Pilsner Brand Warsteiner, and hopes to replicate the considerable success it has enjoyed with another German brand – Jägermeister. Barry & Fitzwilliam plans to add several new brands to its portfolio in 2014.
