About ATOM Supplies

Atom Supplies Limited is a rapidly growing, online, wholesale and distribution business including Maverick Drinks and the United Kingdom’s premier online spirits retailer Master of Malt. Our portfolio has a particular focus on spirits, including our award winning brand Ableforth’s whose products include Bathtub Gin and Rumbullion!

The culture here is one of hard work but also great fun. We like to think of our business as a creative, driven, fast-paced, informal place to work. You can turn up in fancy dress for all we care, as long as you deliver results, and with a relatively small workforce everyone is given big responsibility and trust and this means you can be a real driving force for us.

Too many companies think customer service is just about answering the phone and responding to an email within 5 days. At Atom Supplies, there is so much more. Our service team is responsible for a range of crucial functions that make our business tick and keep our customers happy. You'll be learning a whole lot about whisky, gin and other spirits, dispatch and logistics, international shipping compliance and handling fraudulent orders, marketing and event support in addition to much more.
