CATEGORIES

This year we have the following categories



Drinks Retailing News recruits a panel of industry experts to nominate the best multiple retailers in the land for various drinks categories, such as beer, cider, wine and spirits. We analyse data from Nielsen to discover which retailers are growing market share and driving value into the market. We conduct an extensive consumer survey in order to understand which retailers are impressive shoppers with their BWS offerings. We then conduct a series of store visits to examine the ranges on offer and the various merchandising strategies employed in a bid to discover the retailers that are the most successful. We then consult with industry experts again to determine a winner from the shortlist, using the data we have gathered. There is no need for multiple retailers to nominate themselves.
