Liberty Wines reports record December sales

07 January, 2015

Liberty Wines has reported a record December as it grew sales by 15.8% on the previous year.

It also announced that it grew turnover by around 10%, from £36.5 million to £40.3 million, during the 2013-14 financial year, while profit before tax and other deductions rose 1.8% on the previous year.

Managing director David Gleave said: “In line with the overall growth in the premium wine market, we have posted a solid improvement in turnover and number of cases sold. 

“We expected to see turnover grow at a faster rate than margin as we are now into the second year of our three year investment plan, which started with the move to our new premises. Our aim is to build even stronger foundations for continued future growth, and we are confident of achieving this.”

Gary Wyatt, chief operating officer, added: “These financial results show strong progress in all areas of the business.  

“Providing exceptional customer service remains at the heart of what we do, which is why we have extended our warehouse opening hours, invested in training and made new appointments across our organisation.”
