About South East Bottling
South East Bottling provide a contract bottling service for the craft brewery sector and are based in Broadstairs, East Kent. The company was founded as a result of 3 breweries - Sambrook’s Brewery, Westerham Brewing Co and The Ramsgate Brewery - working collaboratively to meet the bottling needs of each brewery.
South East Bottling's Requirements

We have the flexibility to apply front, back, neck and full wrap around labels to these bottles, all of which is great for the growing demand of the craft brewing sector. The after sales support has been excellent.'
