Who We Are
Established in 1997, NILWA represents independent liquor wholesalers across Australia.
Our liquor wholesale members are family owned and operated businesses. Their family tradition and strong community ties ensure they range high-quality products and offer adaptable and personalised service and care.
With an extensive knowledge and understanding of the on-premise market, our members have over 28 experienced on road sales staff to assist more than 4,000 customers. They help with purchase and range decisions, back bar and fridge space, drink lists, drinks of the month, wines poured by the glass and more.
