Alistair Barclay invests in 31Dover

A member of the billionaire Barclay family has invested in online drinks retailer 31Dover.

Alistair Barclay, the son of Sir David Barclay - who owns the Telegraph newspapers, the Ritz hotel and online retailer Shop Direct with his twin brother Sir Frederick – is reported to have invested a six-figure sum in 31Dover.

31Dover, named after its first office in Mayfair, London, is about to launch Onstock, which is a platform enabling it to easily sell to bars and restaurants. 31Dover was founded six years ago by former DJ David Elghanayan and Jimmy and Roger Metta, selling direct to consumers at lower prices than many of its high street rivals.

Alistair Barclay is also a co-founder of online estate agent Yopa. He will join existing backers in 31Dover, including Bertrand Perrodo, whose family owns French oil company Perenco; and film producer Eric Fellner.

In September this year 31Dover launched a new premium spirits subscription business called Off The Still.

31Dover- along with sister company Vanquish Operations - is operated by parent company DMD Ventures.
