Counterpoint was launched in 2013 and was originally known as Britvic Licensed Wholesale Ltd. However Counterpoint has roots reaching back to 1799 when Augustine Thwaites developed the Thwaites’ Soda Water brand and later in 1852 when Thomas Cantrell invented ginger ale in Belfast, the brand called Club Ginger Ale today. 

Counterpoint are proud to be the brand owners of hugely popular Irish heritage brands like Club Orange, Miwadi, and the recently re-launched Club Mixers. Having listened to On Trade customers Counterpoint are now providing premium and super-premium products to add excitement to their offering and the On-Trade market. 

Recently Counterpoint have launched brands that are category winners at world leading competitions such as the San Francisco World Spirits Competition with Ireland’s most awarded premium gin Shortcross and Kalak Vodka a winner at the Irish Whiskey Awards.
