    Molson Coors signs distribution deal with Bartrums for Aspall Cyder

    Molson Coors Beverage Company said it has agreed a new five-year distribution contract for its super premium Aspall Cyder brand with the logistics company Bartrums.

    The family-owned firm will be responsible for the UK outbound transport, factory clearance, storage and co-packing operations for the entire Aspall Cyder brand.

    The contract will see Bartrums distribute over 28 million litres of Aspall Cyder and vinegar every year for Molson Coors.

    The deal comes as Bartrums completes in the construction of a new 70,000 sq ft, fully racked warehouse and two-storey office block at its headquarters in Eye, Suffolk.

    “We’re excited to be embarking on this new venture with such a like-minded local business. We’ve continued to invest in the Aspall brand and the Aspall Cyder house, and like us, Bartrums is committed to its own growth while maintaining a strong presence in its home county.”
