Why Enter

The Drinks Retailing Awards are among the trade’s biggest highlight, bringing together the leading lights in retail. Not only is our judging process one of the most rigorous and thorough of all the industry awards, but we are also unique in covering the entire breadth of the take-home market, striving to reflect excellence in as many areas of the trade as possible.

Every year, we look to honour retailers who have delivered excellent service, range and value, to create successful and profitable operations.

For our winning retailers, taking home a Drinks Retailing Award represents the ultimate accolade for their business and is a huge achievement. All retailers who make it to the final round are invited to attend the awards as our guest. The awards are presented at a glittering ceremony on the evening of February 5, 2019 at one of London's most prestigious venues, The Dorchester Hotel.
