Last call for Drinks Retailing Awards entries

Entries close tomorrow, Friday, August 7, for the independent categories of the Drinks Retailing Awards.

It is free for all independent retailers to enter at

The awards offer the opportunity for finalists and winners to raise their trade and consumer profiles both locally and nationally.

We want to hear from the best all-round specialists and c-stores, shops with a dedicated focus on beer, wine, spirits and cider, and hybrid on/off venues.

For the first time, there are awards for the businesses that excel in social media and who have run a single outstanding drinks promotion.

The gala awards night is in London next February, but we have a long and through autumn of judging ahead of us. More about how this works and how to enter at
