Bargain Booze is Britain's 30th-largest mid-market private company, according to the Sunday Times Top Track 250 league table.

Other drinks suppliers and retailers in the Top 250 include William Grant (23, £353 million) Edrington Group (58, £279 million) and Direct Wines (66, £271 million). London wine merchant Berry Bros came next (88, £246 million), followed by Halewood International (109, £230 million) and brewers Charles Wells (210, £165 million) and Daniel Thwaites (214, £162 million).

The Sunday Times' Top Track 250 complements the newspaper's Top Track 100 - a chart of the 100 largest British-owned companies - listing the next largest 250 companies by annual turnover. For full details, see fasttrack.co.uk.
