D’Aquino’s is a co-owner of NILWA (National Independent Liquor Wholesalers Association), an administration and marketing group operating on behalf of 11 independently owned wide-range liquor wholesalers located in NSW, QLD, VIC , SA, WA and NT.

We are an alliance of businesses dedicated to the liquor industry, our customers, and our communities. The key marketing philosophy is “Customer Service” with the level of service and understanding of our customer needs as the highest priority.

The NILWA shareholders businesses have a strong focus in the “On Premise” market within their selling areas, influencing the market with product placement using relationships with key purchasing decision makers, and are totally committed to the Associations marketing concepts and its long term development strategies.

As an independent group we combine our knowledge and our collective strength to take our position in an ever shrinking Australian distribution network, dominated by multinationals. We have a strong position in the liquor industry because we offer our customers a unique level of client service which benefits their businesses, and helps them trade more efficiently.

The analysis of our information will help NILWA and its trading partners understand the market and launch effective sales and marketing programs in the years ahead.
