A. S. Bryden & Sons (Antigua) Ltd. has been in business since 1964 and is Antigua’s largest marketing and distribution company. With a business reputation second to none, Brydens supplies the island with high quality consumer, food, health & wellness products and is a major player in the spirit, wine and beer markets. The late Mr. William “Bill” Minors laid the foundation for the Brydens company and though its original focus was on consumer goods, pharmaceuticals and spirits, the food service division was added in August 2000 under the leadership of its general manager, Gregory Mazely. Mr Mazely instilled a sharp focus on a high level of customer service, transparent and reputable business dealings, and consistently competitive pricing, which still remains unrivalled. Nowadays, the Food Service Division offers same day deliveries and guarantees high quality food products. In 2007 Ms. Frances-Ann Minors became Managing Director of the company and her new role was cemented after the sudden passing of her father. Frances-Ann remained true to the founding values imparted by her father and has continued on the journey to develop Brydens to be an enterprising player within the industry, servicing its customers with a broad range of high quality products and international well-loved brands such as Bacardi, Patron, El Dorado, Kraft Mondolez and Kimberley Clarke.Building upon Frances-Ann’s own passion for wines,she added the Wine Division to Brydens in 2012. Its growing reputation for fine wines and liqueurs has enabled the company to successfully align itself with many deluxe hotels, guesthouses, private villas ,high-end restaurants, and major supermarkets.In a continuous quest for excellence, Brydens Wine Club ‘Cuvee’ was created and its extensive wine collection covers most wine regions of the globe, from established European vineyards to those of the New World. Well known names include E. & J. Gallo and the Barefoot family, Robert Mondavi,Masi, Beni Di Batasiolo, Fantinel, Planeta, and the list goes on and on. Brydens also represents Champagne Billecart-Salmon, which is reputedly one of the wine trade’s best kept secrets, producing some of the most tantalizing and elegant Champagnes. Brydens also carries Champagne Duval-Leroy which is one of the last boutique Champagne houses to remain family-owned.A company that began with just five employees and ten product lines, Brydens can now boast 152 employees and over one hundred different brands and product lines. Their consumer-centric approach to business combined with an unparalleled portfolio of high quality commercial products,means customers continue to come back to them again and again.A better future, a brighter day, from humble beginnings to one of Antigua’s most successful business enterprises, this has been and will continue to be the Brydens way.
