I would not hesitate to recommend Ken and his company Smarter Grower Champagne to any establishment looking to expand their Champagne selection beyond the obvious.”

The majority of O&D’s drink products are currently not commercially available in most of its market sectors.


We currently work with buyers where our ‘niche’ premium, artisan drink products best suit the HoReCa market, where our customers wish to offer a small range of ‘hand crafted’ drink products that are creative and stylish and, not readily available in the supermarkets chains. We primarily deliver from our bonded warehouse facility - London City Bond.
