2018’s Drinks Business Awards: profiling the recipients

Drinks Event of the Year

Winner

The Whisky Exchange for The Cognac Show

Our judges praised this energetic effort to breathe life into the Cognac category and turn a new generation of consumers into brand ambassadors. They felt that both the consumer and trade elements had been very well thought out and successfully engaged with both groups at the same time by drawing in a compelling line-up of presenters. They were also impressed by the fact that the show made a decent profit in its first year.

Special commendation

Wine Australia for Women in Wine

Noting Wine Australia’s canny ability to innovate, our judges praised this cleverly crafted tasting, which, in celebrating female achievement in the Australian wine industry and shining a light on some of the country’s most talented female winemakers, captured the zeitgeist.

    In terms of the totality of customer satisfaction and lifetime achievement in supporting and upping the ante in the global winemaking industry, Tony’s CBE must be the most deserved ever!

    Well done sir!

    Come to think of it – why wasn’t it a knighthood?

    Best Regards
