“I worked with Ken closely at The Lanesborough Hotel to introduce high
quality Grower Champagnes to our guests. I found Ken to be passionate, creative
and very reliable in all business dealings. 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.”

Fitzrovia; O&D has also worked with other wholesalers, discerning

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.
