About Borough Wines Imports

Borough Wines Imports is the wholesale arm of award–winning independent merchant and green retail pioneer, Borough Wines.

We are wine on tap specialists, supplying high quality wine in kegs to restaurants, bars and venues, with an in–house cellar tech team providing expert installation services and ongoing support.

Borough Wines Imports also provides a unique consultation service for independent retailers, creating bespoke wine retail packages called Borough Wines Corners, in farm shops, delis and convenience outlets nationwide.

If you sell wine (or want to), get in touch to find out more about what we can do for you.

Wine on Tap

We source wines from around the world, transport it in bulk to minimise environmental impact and put it into kegs at our specialised east London facility.

Stored in keg, this wine stays perfectly fresh and flavourful, while the tap technology delivers a consistent, high quality serve, from the first, to the final glass (and all 190 glasses in between!).

Borough Wines Imports is approved by the Sustainable Restaurant Association and our wine on tap system can be found in restaurants, bars and venues across the UK.

The benefits of wine on tap

Wine on tap is much more environmentally friendly than serving by the bottle and has many business benefits too:

Better for the planet

  • Each 24l keg = 32 bottles (75cl), saving 16kg of glass from being produced and disposed of
  • Less packaging and reduced transport requirements mean a smaller carbon footprint
  • Our unique keg collection and refill service means each keg is reused again and again

Better for the wine

  • Kegs keep wine fresh and in perfect condition – no cork taint, no oxidation, no flat fizz
  • Wine served at the ideal temperature
  • Consistency – wine quality maintained from the first to last pour

Better for business

  • Better margins
  • No more wasted wine
  • Speeds up service
  • Offers a striking point of difference
  • Ease of use and simplified logistics

Better for the customer

  • Lower production costs mean smaller overheads and better value for money
  • Flexibility to buy by the glass, carafe or bottle
  • Better choice and better wine

Installing wine on tap

Borough Wines Corners

Borough Wines has over 15 years’ experience on the retail front line. Over that time, we have developed unique insights into the market, its trends and demands. In short – we know what it takes to make a profit in the bottle business.

We used these insights to develop the Borough Wines Corners – complete wine retail solutions for independent shops and delis.

These tailored, full–service packages give non–specialist retailers access to the expertise of a specialist wine shop, access to a bespoke bottle range and ongoing sales support.
