Dunns acquires premium spirits business Hot Sauce Drinks

In a deal involving two Glasgow wholesalers, Dunns Food & Drinks has acquired premium spirits business Hot Sauce Drinks for an undisclosed sum.

Dunns managing director Jim Rowan said: “This acquisition is bold, but we like that. It says to our customers that we’re constantly trying to keep at the forefront with regards to consumer trends.”

Operating from a 65,000 sq ft depot, Dunns, a member of Country Range Group,  covers the whole of Scotland with its 28 vehicles.

Operations director Julie Dunn told Cash & Carry Management: “Not including Hot Sauce Drinks, we have a turnover of just under £30 million, around 60% coming from food and 40% from drinks.

“Among our biggest customers are Dobbies Garden Centres and The DRG restaurant chain. We also deal with lots of independent operators.”

The Hot Sauce Drinks site has been closed, the business now operating from Dunns’ Blantyre head office.
