About Us

Atlantic Spirits and Wines is truly the first independently owned full service alcohol beverage sales agency in Atlantic Canada.

It is the result of the merger of two companies with over 50 years experience in the beverage alcohol industry; Atlantic Spirits and Wines 2003 and Charles R. Bell Ltd.’s beverage alcohol division.

A company which is committed to mutually beneficial partnerships with key strategic suppliers, allowing for focus and a dedicated effort towards the tasks at hand.
