Bemakers: simplifying distribution

If you’re a spirit brand looking for seamless distribution, sales and market solutions, then look no further than Bemakers.

The Danish firm operates in seven European countries

Moving your spirits brands across European borders should not be difficult – Bemakers’ expertise alleviates the stress and uncertainty around expanding your brand. If your goal is to centralise your European exports or expansion plans, all while retaining oversight and control of your brand pricing, market strategy and customers, then Bemakers could be the perfect partner for you.

Since 2021, multi‐country distributor Bemakers has endeavoured to support companies, big and small, as they navigate the often complex and expensive list of legal, financial and operational requirements to sell across Europe.

“For years, we’ve received requests from Austrian consumers we couldn’t fulfil. Now, with Bemakers enabling D2C in Austria, this is finally possible. The direct model offered by Bemakers is truly a game-changer for us,” says Jonas Schenke, CEO of Mayaciel Spirits.

Bemakers is able to manage the behind‐the‐scenes logistics, distribution, compliance and infrastructure of scaling a business in different European countries. The company is able to automate and simplify all the administration needed to run a direct beverage business.

“We enable a platform for spirits brands to have direct sales/commercial relations with their end customers – whether it’s B2B, D2C, or distributors,” says Morten Stengaard, Bemakers co‐founder and CEO.

If D2C shipping is your focus, Bemakers can help you elevate your e‐commerce strategy and deliver your brand directly to consumers in Europe through customisable online shops.

Alternatively, the B2B arm of the company can optimise orders from on‐trade and off‐ trade buyers of all sizes. Partnering with Bemakers guarantees full transparency for brand owners, as the company keeps full control of its pricing, its customer base, and the data.

“When Bemakers was first started, we thought that we were the partner for craft beverage brands – the smaller brands that do not necessarily have the resources to deal with export,” notes Stengaard.

“However, during the last 12 months, we have seen that our offerings and services resonate with both mid‐sized and larger companies, and it’s both brand owners as well as distributors we work with. We have more than 150 brand partners we work with today from across the world.”

These valued partners include In the Welsh Wind, Arbikie, Skellig, Coconut Cartel, and Spicehaus to name just a few.

At present, Bemakers operates in seven European countries – Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway and Sweden. Brand owners can also list their products on third‐party platforms and marketplaces such as Amazon and the Nordic monopolies. Bemakers has ambitious goals to open up new markets. High on the agenda are Finland, Spain, Switzerland and the UK.

What will always remain constant at Bemakers is the company’s ethos of working with its clients in a collaborative way. Bemakers is committed to co‐developing close relationships with its customers, as well the wider industry and authorities that govern cross‐border spirits shipping.
