After a decade working in the world of fine wine, friends Timothy Block and Edward Kennedy founded Hatton & Edwards.
The idea hatched in 2013 with the simple notion of offering solid stock and charming service at a fair price. It proved a simple sell. To date over £7 million of fine wine has found a happy home.
2014 saw the happy chap in the photo above join HEwines to take control of sales, Jack was already a great mate of the boys and schooled at Cheltenham College alongside Edward.
Although the companies heart lies in wine from Bordeaux and Burgundy, Hatton & Edwards stocks bottles from over 50 regions. A commitment to personal service, attractive pricing, not to mention their nose for a decent bottle, is still the foundation of the firm. Do call one of the Team to finds out more.
Someone once said something about friends and business, perhaps it’s the alcohol, but we are enjoying every moment of building Hatton & Edwards into a merchant we are very proud of.
Timothy has spent the past 10 years working in the wine industry. Specialising in the valuing and purchasing of Bordeaux, Burgundy and Italian wines. When Tim is not discovering stunning new cellars he can be found discovering exciting new restaurants.
Edward’s background is in purchasing high value, often rare, goods and matching buyers to sellers. Specialising in Duty Paid “home stored” cellars, Edward ensures the process is seamless, right from valuation through to collection for our clients. Aside from wine Ed is a scratch golfer and surprisingly for a big man, avid ornithologist.
Jack has worked in the wine industry for 5 years, starting out on the Chelsea restaurant scene before moving into retail; managing a prestigious Knightsbridge wine shop. He has been fortunate enough to be exposed to the world’s best wines and the country’s most discerning clientele. Hatton and Edwards is proud to count Mr Boone as its head of sales.
Having graduated from Exeter University with a degree in Law, James has decided to pursue a career in product development and marketing. With experience working in a wide range of startups, James brings with him a wealth of knowledge of modern process and strategy.
After spending the past 14 years working for a successful textile merchant where Duty, Vat and warehouses were common place Jean moved seamlessly into the wine trade. Joining Hatton & Edwards midway through 2016 to run the accounts department – Jean will be pleased to assist you with all accounts related queries.
