The Underwood Story

Wine & Spirit Merchants since 1886!

How it all began....

From Grandfather to Father Morris John Underwood and his two brothers Michael and Tony had the first dedicated drinks cash and carry in the Midlands, which suffered under the rise of larger supermarkets.  

Using our generations of experience, we bring the best regular wine supply to our esteemed clients, nationally, from our Warwickshire base. We also supply wholesale to the trade. We can design and supply bespoke wine lists and have a variety of pubs and restaurants who we work with regularly. 

Men are like wine. Some turn to vinegar, but the best improve with age!!

John Thomas Underwood laid our alcohol infused foundations when he began transporting whiskey from the Johnny Walker Distillery in Kilmarnock in 1886, combining the cask with the naturally soft local water to 'break down' the whiskey from 136 to 78 proof. 

And Now....

Tim and Nick have run the business together since 1980. Underwood Wines is now extremely proud to be in it's 40th year! We moved Underwood's from our much loved base at The Old Pie Factory, in 2017 to The Hanger, where we can be found today.

An event isn't an event without Underwood's Bars and Mr Pimm's in attendance! We can often be found at private events, local fairs and street parties supplying wine, beer and spirits from our portable outside bar. For the winter months, you can rely on us to bring the mulled wine! 

Underwood Wines offer specialist Old & Rare wines for your pleasure. We can advise on wine rack dressing, cellar dressing, cellar valuations, cellar clearance along with a unique international specialist wine and spirit brokerage service for a single bottle or two that you may have acquired over the years. Please get in touch if we can help. 

The Hanger is a great place to visit. Call in and browse through hundreds of wonderful wines and spirits. While away an hour or two! Individual wine tastings for pre purchase can be arranged on request. Explore your wine hobby while admiring our classic car collection in a beautiful, quiet, relaxed location. Bliss!!
