Suffolk brewer and retailer Adnams opened the doors to its fifth Cellar & Kitchen store in the East Anglian region yesterday (Monday, July 23).

The latest addition to the company's successful wine and kitchen retail brand is located in Harleston, on the Suffolk Norfolk border.

Adnams' retail director Rupert Farquharson said: “The Cellar & Kitchen store has been hugely successful in Southwold for many years and since 2005 we have taken the concept to Holkham, Woodbridge, Stamford and now Harleston.

“Our plan is to expand the Adnams Cellar & Kitchen store concept into several more hand-picked locations. Our strategy for outlet selection is to focus on locations where there is a core base of regular local trade, supplemented by tourist visitors and second home-owners.”

The key to the stores' success, he added, was to attract high-end consumers looking for interesting wines that are not generally stocked by the supermarkets.

Alex Clack, manager of the new Harleston store, said: “Our extensive selection of over 400 wines is personally selected by Alastair Marshall and the wine team based in Southwold. Alastair's buying philosophy is based on buying wines he truly loves to drink - most are from small-scale producers and are made in an environmentally respectful manner.
