Europe’s largest drinks warehouse

Europe’s largest drinks warehouse, in Avonmouth, Bristol, can store 35.96 million liters of the tipple – enough to fill 15 Olympic-sized swimming pools.

The warehouse accounts for 15 per cent of the UK’s total wine and alcohol market and took three years to build.

Covering 858,000 sq ft – with a roof big enough to park 4,000 cars – the internal volume of the building is equivalent to 14,000 double decker buses.

The complex can hold enough wine to give one to every adult in the UK with nearly 11 million bottles left over.
Laid end-to-end, the bottles would stretch over 9,000 miles – the distance from London to Perth, Australia.
