Strawberry Bon-Bon and Pineapple Cube are among the flavours in this wine supplier’s range of fusion drinks. In 2016, the Manchester-based firm became the first UK bottler to carbonate still wine — hoping to capitalise on the popularity of sparkling drinks and the prospect of a prosecco shortage. Managing director Andy Sagar, 58, saw turnover increase 41% to £229.1m last year, as the company benefited from a full year of trading for its 2015 acquisition, distributor Bottle Green.
