Glasgow-based Dunns Food and Drinks has acquired their Scottish peer Hot Sauce Drinks, wholesaler of premium spirits for an undisclosed sum.

After a momentous year in terms of growth in 2017, food and drink wholesaler Dunns is eager to innovate and shake up their offering. Under this move, Dunns customers will have access to an unparalleled range of premium spirits and cocktail accoutrements while previous Hot Sauce customers can look forward to the amazing quality of service from Dunns, the company said in a statement.

Jim Rowan, Managing Director of Dunns said: “ It’s a really exciting time to be a part of the Dunns team. This acquisition is bold but we like that: it says to our customers that we’re constantly trying to keep at the forefront with regards to consumer trends”.

“We take a keen interest in what our customers are doing and we’ve been fascinated by their inventive nature with regards to cocktails in recent times,” remarked Rowan. “It’s a market which we believe will only continue to bloom and having access to such a vast array of premium spirits only encourages our customers to continue creating”.
