We started out as a group of friends in Stockholm who shared a deep passion for great drinks, and went on to establish an import business in 1997. Our vision was to supply the Swedish beverage market with a better choice of high-quality beers, spirits and wines. This still remains our ambition to this day.
We do our research, we travel to countries around the world to find exciting new taste experiences. We go to the source, we create friendships – and then we bring home the very best drinks we can find. Today Galatea is the importer of an impressive range of international brands from some twenty countries, covering a wide variety of categories.
Even in our early start-up years we had a vision of producing great drinks in our own right, so we invested in some exciting brands like Three Towns Independent Brewers, Arboga Beer and Hannas Cider. Around 2010 we expanded into the booming craft beer market with S:t Eriks Brewery and Sigtuna Brewhouse, as well as the liquor market with Good ol’ Sailor.
In 2020 Galatea acquired Domaine Wines in order to become a full-range wine supplier to the HoReCa and Systembolaget channels.
Together with our customers and our amazing partners around the globe we are continuously shaping the world of drinks in Sweden. Join us on our journey, contact us today to see what we can do together!
