Introduction

In last year’s Wine Selection introduction we talked about the changing face of our Independent On-Trade market. Little did we know at that time that the changes were also going to include the purchase of H.B. Clark & Co. Ltd by the Kitwave Group in November 2016. This is already having a positive effect on our Company in terms of modernising and upgrading our Depot infrastructure and systems to enable us to provide our customers with an enhanced service in future years. In terms of WINE we will continue to provide our customers with specialist, exclusive and interesting choices and this year we have 3 new suppliers being added to give more depth, quality, expertise and innovation to our portfolio.

Possibly the most exciting development this year is our new association in the North of England with Baron Philipe de Rothschild. Their UK agents Waddesdon-Rothschild have identified H.B. Clark as their chosen Company to work with and develop listings and sales of their range including their famous and iconic wines. Our Wine Team and Sales Executives look forward to working with you on this fantastic opportunity to access, taste and sell these wines of top quality and incredible heritage.

We have received a huge amount of praise and positive feedback on the look and presentation of our HBC Wine Selection in the last few years.
We have modified the cover this year and added new features to some of the inside for this year’s edition but kept the successful format and information
to what you now recognise as the H.B. Clark Wine Selection. However we have been very proactive looking for NEW wines this year. Our normal turnover of wine changes in a year is typically about 10% however this year, after extensive benchmarking tastings, we will be altering close to 20% of last year’s listings bringing you better quality, better choice and more exclusivity and specialist focus in certain WINE areas this year.

We continue to put all our sales teams through WSET courses to improve their WINE knowledge and help to provide you with better quality and up to date market advice. We look forward to engaging with you and help improve your outlets profit and turnover on WINE in the year ahead.
