Jacques Scott Group is incorporated in the Cayman Islands, British West Indies, and is the leading wholesaler and retailer of beers, wines and spirits in these Islands. It also distributes soft drinks, food and food service products to the hotel, restaurant, supermarket and retail outlet sectors.

From modest origins more than a half century ago, Jacques Scott has become a major Caymanian company serving the territory’s domestic market and foodservice sector. Its four operating divisions employ some 90 people. The company started out as a beer and spirits importer, with a limited range of food products, wines and champagnes. The company has built up a portfolio of excellent relationships with many of the world’s leading suppliers and therefore leads in most categories of product ranges.

Known locally for its strong commitment to the community and support for many different charities, Jacques Scott remains equally dedicated to growing its business in Cayman and beyond.
