Wholesale Beer


A brief introduction from Colin Gilhespy of our parent company

Started by my father 30 years ago and now run by my sister Louise, and I – Cave Direct is a family owned business and, although we are expanding rapidly, we pride ourselves on our unrivalled personal and knowledgeable service.

We are a wholly owned family business, started in 1979 to source and distribute top quality beers from all over the world – many of which are very hard to find in the UK and all from craft brewers who are passionate about quality. We employ 15 people, working to supply these fantastic beers to pubs bars and restaurants in the London area, as well as further afield in the south and south-east. We work hard to communicate beer; we take pride in understanding where the beers have come from, how they are made, and where they are best presented.  Thanks to our close relationship with many of brewers, centred on Belgium, we are able to offer our beers at keen prices and guarantee good supply.  We reinforce our position in many ways, both traditional and modern, including opportunities for staff training, beer event presence, and fundamentally presenting the beers in a way that the brewers themselves would want.  Our reputation is founded on offering beers from Belgium, a founding father of the speciality beers much duplicated elsewhere in the World and their current well-deserved and dramatic rise in popularity is due to an appreciation of their complexity and excellent quality.  Besides the better-known mainstream brands we support, CaveDirect aims to continuously source lesser-known beers from smaller, more artisan brewers. We are always reviewing and updating our beer listing, and have recently expanded our premium quality beer range from other countries.
