For the past 60 years, Kingsland has worked with the world’s finest wine producers to supply branded and own label wines and spirits to customers including Tesco, Marks & Spencer, Co-op and smaller independent retailers. To expand its product range, the company has upgraded its Manchester site so that it can make carbonated and fruit flavoured “fusion” wines. In April, managing director Andy Sagar, 57, led the acquisition of Leeds based distributor Bottle Green, for an undisclosed sum. It has sales of £165m.
