    BBC Spirits was founded in 2010 after a happy encounter between Bogdan and Bertrand. BBC stands for Bogdan & Bertrand Company. The company initially started by exporting wine, and over the years gradually specialised in the import and distribution of spirits.
    BBC fosters an innovative and visionary spirit. Our aim is to discover new brands and support them in their growth.
    We also develop our own brands, closely monitoring market trends to create authentic craft gems. Our creativity and know-how have won us awards on several occasions in different competitions.
    Excellence is central to our strategy. We are particularly attentive to our customers and producers in order to maintain relationships built on trust. To this end, we regularly go to meet them to ensure their expectations are met in the best way possible.

    Every year, we extend our distribution network in France and abroad and are establishing ourselves as a specialist, selecting the most suitable channels for brands in different countries. Our core target remains the traditional network, via independent merchants and chains, as well cafés, hotels and restaurants (the on-trade). We are also developing international markets through retail.
    • Creator of spirits: we have developed our portfolio of own brands with the same core values of authenticity and quality. Our strong, lasting relationships with distilleries across the world have helped us create a large range of premium spirits. We strive to offer innovative products that reflect the very essence of luxury. From American whisky to Russian vodka via Japanese gin, we create each of our products with precision, audacity and distinction.
    • Importer and distributor: it is first and foremost travel and encounters that have forged the portfolio of BBC Spirits. It is a comprehensive portfolio boasting more than 60 premium products. BBC scrupulously selects the brands we distribute and helps them develop internationally.
