Cobees is a Canadian wine and liquor import agency based in British Columbia. We specialize in a diverse range of Korean liquors and terroir-driven wines from underrepresented appellations.
Founded in 2010, Cobees Enterprise quickly established itself as a leading importer of specialty Korean spirits, beer and sake. As the company grew, the portfolio was expanded to include wines that meet our rigorous standards. Cobees now maintains a carefully curated portfolio focused on underrepresented appellations and indigenous grape varieties from six different countries.
Our talented sales team offers our products in all corners of the industry, selling to provincial liquor boards, private liquor stores, and hospitality. We currently operate in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Quebec, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island.
