Spirits

Spirit sales are still on the increase for the twelfth year straight. This is not surprising considering the massive resurgence of the ‘mixologist’, such as the award winning Wayne Collins, encouraging bartenders to enhance their own skills. Not only can this provide you with valuable revenue, but will give you credibility among premium consumers.  Our full range of spirits, which comprises of over 300 different products, also contains a selection of high quality and competitively priced house brands.  Speak to us to see how we can help you increase your sales.

Vodka

Vodka

Vodka has a vast history and origins dating back to the 14th century. It is the market leader of the spirits category, with over 8 million drinkers in the UK alone. Lacons stocks over 70 varieties including many brands and flavoured alternatives, from market favourites such as Smirnoff and Absolut through to exclusive premium ranges from Belvedere and Grey Goose.

Gin

Gin

Described by Charles Dickens as "perfectly dazzling when contrasted with the darkness and dirt we have just left...", the 'gin palace' first became popular in the late Victorian era, and was the original name for a lavish bar selling gin. Gin is an ever popular drink that never goes out of fashion, and modern drinkers are becoming more aware of brand selection. While it is important to cater for the palate of this new breed of discerning gin drinking customer, stocking bar staple brands to satisfy the needs of mainstream customers will also improve your returns.

Whisky

Whisky

There is much debate over whether it was the Irish or Scots that were first to distil whiskey. Scotch whisky comes in many different styles, from strongly flavoured to lighter blended scotch, but so does Irish Whiskey. What is clear from the consumer is that a range of whiskey should be offered from mainstream brands such as Famous Grouse and Bells to more refined brands which border on the line of blends and malts.

Blends, Malt & Bourbon

Blends, Malt & Bourbon

Imported brands dominate this category, from spicy, fruity Irish whiskies to aged Bourbon and Tennessee whiskies with stronger flavours of vanilla and caramel.

Rum

Rum

The origin of the word rum is unclear, but in an 1824 essay, Samuel Morewood, a British etymologist, suggested that it might be from the British slang term for 'the best," as in "having a rum time." Rum is often grouped into categories such as white rum, golden rum and dark rum. With its varied tastes rum can be perfect served neat, with a simple mixer, or as part of a cocktail such as a mojito.

Liqueur & Aperitif

Liqueur & Aperitif

Liqueurs are high-alcohol, high-sugar beverages with added flavourings usually derived from herbs, fruits, or nuts. With a stock list of over 30 different varieties of liqueur, we are able to advise you on the right offering for your customer's requirements. Consumers are always on the lookout for new and exciting drinks to try, and using liqueurs in cocktails can make your premises feel exclusive and unique.

Shooters

Shooters

You may think that shots are a relatively modern concept, but in Italy, shots of grappa have been drunk for over 200 years. Choosing to sell shooters from our product range of over 50 varieties will not only provide you with an 'add-on' drink option by encouraging your consumers to purchase more drinks per round, but the exciting new range of flavours for many traditional shot brands have made these drinks popular as a flavour base for cocktails too.
