Total Beverage Company. Beer, Spirits, Wine & More.

Arthur “Art” Pepin began Pepin Distributing Company when he was awarded the Tampa Marketplace from Anheuser-Busch in 1967.  He believed that customer service, tending to the employee family and service to the community were hallmarks of good business.  In 1981, Thomas “Tom” Pepin became President and CEO to continue the traditions that his father began.  The company grew in volume and size over the decades and expanded its portfolio to include wine and spirits as well as nonalcoholic beverages serving as the Tampa Bay area’s premier total beverage solution. Today, Pepin remains privately owned with the commitment to maintain and promote the legacy of its namesake. Greg McLeod, a 25+ year industry veteran, is the current President and equity partner in the organization.
