Berry Bros. & Rudd is Britain's oldest wine and spirit merchant and was founded 307 years ago in 1698 on the current site on St James's Street. The business originally traded in tea and coffee and the wine side was developed in the early 19th century. Berry Bros now have shops in London, Hong Kong, Japan, China, Dublin and Basingstoke. Their website is now the second most-visited commercial wine website in the world. Berry Bros regularly wins international awards and in 2009 won Wine Merchant of the Year (International Wine Challenge), Direct Wine Merchant of the Year, En Primeur Merchant of the Year and Rhône Specialist Wine Merchant of the Year, as well as Decanter's Online Merchant of the Year.
