One of the most important elements of fine dining is ensuring that you have an impressive collection of wines and other alcohol available for your patrons. This is because it will compliment the palate when combined with certain dishes and will certainly add to the overall experience of your customers, leading to fabulous reviews and fantastic sales.
In order to understand why you should procure wine from wholesalers, you must understand the three-tier market system, which is prevalent in various countries including Seychelles. The first tier of the system, right on top, includes your producers. Producers, in case of alcohol, are essentially the distilleries, breweries and wineries that manufacture the products in the first place. Sometimes, importers are also included in this tier. This is where the supply of the alcohol comes from.
The second tier includes the wholesalers. These people are responsible for taking the products from the producers and selling them to retailers such as off-premise sites, which includes food stores, pharmacies and package stores or on-premise sites such as restaurants, bars, clubs, and other venues. As you can guess, retailers make up the third tier of the system.
Keeping this in mind, buying wine from wholesalers comes with a whole host of advantages as you will not only be connected to some of the best producers in Seychelles but will also be able to avoid the hassle of waiting for certain products to be stocked in stores or dealing with your demands not being met. Economically speaking, it is also far cheaper to purchase alcohol from them as opposed to from stores as you will have to pay not only the market rates but also an extravagant tax as well.
Most wholesalers are also well acquainted with the pros and cons of different types of wines so if you are a novice when it comes to them, you can always ask them for help. You’ll be surprised to see that they can devise a fantastic wine menu for your restaurant and ensure that the drinks go very well with the food you are going to serve. This is more important than it sounds because through this, you can ensure that your customers have a fabulous time no matter what they end up ordering on the menu. You should train your servers and waiters to recommend the right type of drinks to compliment the food once it’s ordered.
