ABOUT US

Drinks Retailing Awards


The Drinks Retailing Awards is an exclusive and unique ceremony. It brings together the top-level decision-makers in the UK off-trade to celebrate and honour exemplary retailers and reward excellence within the licensed retail market, with particular attention to drinks retailing. The competition is the most respected for supermarkets, wine merchants, independent specialists, convenience stores and wholesalers. 

The Drinks Retailing Awards are the most prestigious in the industry because they have the most rigorous judging process. There are 25 award categories in total to reflect the diversity and dynamism of the take-home sector. For judging purposes, the awards are split in two category areas: those open to just multiple retailers and those open just to independent retailers.

On the night we have in attendance more than 350 guests, comprising retailers with buying power. All finalists are invited to attend the awards as guests of Drinks Retailing magazine. Plus for all independent finalists there is a paid-for overnight stay at a London hotel. Winners will be announced at the awards ceremony on Tuesday February 2, 2021 at London’s Dorchester Hotel on Park Lane.
