Established in early 2017 by Chris Maddison and Owain Southwell with the goal of supplying premium wines and craft beer from family-owned Australian producers to the independent market.
Australian Family Owned and Operated
In an environment that is increasingly becoming dominated by major retailers creating a generic offering of major brands and driving value out of the market, Pail & Cooper are driven by the passion of the families that are creating outstanding produce and the local businesses (both independent retail and bars/restaurants) that strive to support them.
Supporting Independent Producers
Pail & Cooper proudly represent a diverse portfolio of craft breweries and premium boutique wineries and a cider house all hand-selected for their quality, sense of place and family roots. We pride ourselves on taking a partnership approach with our customers, providing category insights, advice on constructing effective winelists, running consumer tastings and organising winemaker dinners.
In the last couple of years, we have introduced two Social Enterprise brands and are extremely proud that in a short space of time, we have donated over $70,000 to Sisterworks Inc. through sales of munificent wines and funded life-saving nutrition for over 12,000 children in Africa through sales of Goody Goody wines.
