Drinks Business Awards 2015: the winners

Best Supply Chain Innovation – Beer

db Awards 2015_HEL7823 copyWinner: Meantime Brewing Company

The judges were truly inspired by London-based brewer Meantime’s creative initiative to bring the experience of brewery-fresh lager into a pub setting. While acknowledging the challenge of finding venues with the right space to install one of these beer tanks, the judges were excited to see the traction this venture has already gained, as well as the concept’s strong fit with the wider craft beer movement. “It’s not just a delivery solution, it’s a marketing campaign, but with the genuine customer benefit of a better tasting beverage,“ remarked one member of the panel.

Winner: London City Bond

Fine wine may represent a niche part of the global wine category, but this UK bonded warehouse business has positioned itself as the place for those seeking long-term storage for their investment-grade wines. LCB has invested over £1 million to transform its 200,000 square foot Vinotheque facility into a state-of-the-art, fully humidity and temperature controlled warehouse, tailor-made for preserving wine in perfect condition. The judges welcomed such a “visionary step” as a “very bold” commitment that provides invaluable support for the many merchants and private collectors who help to make the UK such a hub for the world’s fine wine.
