The Drinks Bakery’s full range of delicious snacks made to compliment your favourite drinks are now on sale in UK Waitrose stores, as well as online.

Stuck for a delicious snack to enjoy alongside your favourite tipple? The Drinks Bakery has you covered, with its award-winning and ‘dangerously addictive’ range of Drinks Biscuits now available in Waitrose stores across the UK, as well as online.

Founder and Chief Biscuiteer Andy Murray (not the tennis player...) is raising a glass to his company’s new partnership with Waitrose, which is now stocking the full range of moreish savoury snacks at the deli counters of 230 of its stores across the UK.

Established in Edinburgh in 2016, The Drinks Bakery offers four mouth-watering flavours of savoury biscuits which are expertly flavour-profiled to match different drinks from around the world. The biscuits are baked in the Highlands and are packed with specially sourced cheeses from world-renowned Edinburgh cheesemonger I.J. Mellis.

Flavours include: Parmesan, Toasted Pine Nuts and Basil – perfect with craft lagers and fruity white wines; Lancashire Cheese and Spring Onion – delicious paired with Speyside whisky and bitter beers; Pecorino, Rosemary and Seaweed – superb served with a G&T or gin cocktails; and Mature Cheddar, Chilli and Almond – the ideal partner for ciders and Malbec style red wines.

Online reviewers have praised the snacks as ‘dangerously addictive’, ‘divine’ and ‘the most delicious biscuits [they] have ever tasted’. The brand has won over many of fans since its 2016 launch – not least Dragons’ Den stalwarts Deborah Meaden and Peter Jones, who both tucked into a share of the business in 2018 when Andy appeared on the programme.

Welcoming the news of the Waitrose deal, The Drinks Bakery founder Andy Murray said: “I keep having to pinch myself that this is all really happening, it’s going to be fantastic to see our Drinks Bakery range on the Waitrose shelves and online...

“I’m a lifelong foodie, and growing up my mum would make her own savoury snacks to pair with the aperitifs she and Dad would enjoy. My vision in founding this company was to raise the bar on the common savoury snack and create thoughtful and delicious snacks to match and complement different drinks, from wine and whisky to gin and craft beer...”

Dragons’ Den Investor Peter Jones said: “The Drinks Bakery is one of the best brands I’ve ever seen in the Den and Waitrose is a perfect match for Andy’s delicious Drinks Biscuits.”

Deborah Meaden said: “Drinks Biscuits are fabulous products and I have no doubt that they will quickly become a favourite among discerning customers.”

The Drinks Bakery has landed several coveted accolades in the eight years since its inception, including many Great Taste awards, Scotland Food & Drink Excellence Awards and The Best Indulgent Snack at the World Food Innovations Awards 2021.
