10 years of the db awards: Man of the Year

Last year the drinks business turned 10 years old marking a decade of award winners produced by the annual drinks business awards, now in its 11th year.

To mark the milestone we decided to leaf through the archives and take a look back over the past decade to see which industry professionals were praised for their contribution to the drinks trade throughout the noughties and beyond.

The db awards have grown to become the most authoritative and internationally respected badge of achievement recognising and celebrating best practice in the drinks industry.

Man of the Year is just one category which has seen some of the biggest names in the industry walk away with the title.

Entries are now being taken for the 2014 awards which will see the addition of two new categories, Travel Retail Operator of the Year and Online Retailer of the Year, to an already established line-up of awards.

Entry for all the award categories is £149 + VAT per entry until 24th February 2014, or £179 + VAT thereafter.

Deadline for all entries is 25 April 2014 with the winners due to be unveiled at a ceremony during the London Wine Fair on 3 June.
