Symposium was created in 2020 by James Hayman, Justin Shore and James Macdonald to provide a fresh and independent approach to the UK Spirits Market.

Based in the heart of London we pride ourselves on being truly independent and on placing the customer at the heart of everything we do. We appreciate that different customers have different needs and so use the flexibility of our portfolio to provide tailored solutions.

We offer a wide range of truly independent brands, all of which have been carefully chosen with a focus on delivering great tasting products with wonderful versatility. As our growing portfolio continues to expand, we enjoy discussing exciting new brand opportunities for the UK market with customers that share our ethos.

Sustainability and protecting the planet for future generations is a key value of Symposium and at the heart of all our decision making, including developing the industry’s first sustainable rum. As an independent company, we have the ability and agility to be adaptive and quick to respond, providing our customers with a truly personalised experience.
