Hercules adds a further string to its bow in Kent

25 June, 2010

Kent-based Hercules Wine Warehouse has opened its third branch in the county.

Directors Kevin Dodd and Andrew Lomax established the operation after spotting a gap in the market for a high-quality independent wine merchant in Kent. The chain now stocks some 300 wines.

Dodd said: “The success of our first two operations is due to our wide range of affordable wines, sourced from small to medium-sized producers not represented in multiple retailers.

“Our customers appreciate our friendly and personal service and advice.”
