About Us

Marblehead is an entrepreneurial brand development company that has given vital momentum to some of the most famous premium spirits brands ever launched in the UK, including Absolut, The Kraken, Maker’s Mark and Zubrowka, steering them to become leaders in their category.

Now owned by Quintessential Brands, Marblehead has expanded its portfolio of premium, third-party brands from a number of International Brand Owners, to include Ypióca Cachaça, Don Papa Rum from the Philippines and Crown Royal Canadian Whisky. In addition the company also represents many of the Quintessential Brands, such as Opihr Oriental Spiced Gin, Berkeley Square Gin, The Dubliner Irish Whiskey and Feeney’s Irish Cream.

The company’s brand development skills and collaborative partnerships with Brand Owners are reinforced by the relationships the company enjoys with the UK trade, including national/regional wholesalers, on-trade, innovative independent free trade outlets and all of the UK’s major multiple retailers. Working with the trade to help consumers engage with brands, Marblehead’s pioneering and creative approach to brand building sits alongside a complete UK distribution network, offering solid sales, marketing, distribution and logistic support to provide a total route to market.
