island2island has a national sales infrastructure with offices in every state and manages international logistics though a partnership with BevChain Logistics. The brand distribution strength of Angostura aromatic bitters allows i2i to offer unique leverage into the Australian Liquor trade in both on-premise and off-premise areas. Angostura aromatic bitters enjoy 100 per cent distribution throughout the Australian liquor trade making it a truly unique offering.

In 2011 island2island's brand portfolio expanded.

Through our expanding portfolio of premium brands we also offer a strong presence in the premium on and off-premise markets with sound relationships with some of the most prestigious on-premise venues in town.
