First exhibitors for the Wine & Spirits Show revealed

the drinks business and The Spirits Business are joining forces once again this year to host the Wine & Spirits Show, and now we can reveal our first exhibitors…

Our Wine & Spirits Show is taking place on 12-13 April (from 2pm-9pm on 12 April and from 1pm-8pm on 13 April) at the same venue as last year, One Whitehall Place, London.

The two-day event, open to both consumers and the trade, will bring leading wine and spirits brands together for an exciting programme of, tasting, education and debate.

Some 1,500 visitors are expected to descend on Westminster this spring, sampling everything from German craft gin to Pol Roger Champagne.

We’re also bringing back the G&T bar this year, featuring spirits from Hamburg-based distillery Knut Hansen, Pocketful of Stones – headquartered in Long Rock, near Penzance, and Scotland’s Orkney Gin Company.

While wineries will be out in force at the event, there will be something for every professional and enthusiast at the show, with a dedicated wine hall, spirits hall, beer zone and G&T bar.

Spirits

When it comes to the spirits, one of our previous partners couldn’t wait to come back for our 2nd innings.

Returning for 2019 is independent Scotch whisky producer Angus Dundee Distillers. The company owns both Tomintoul distillery on Speyside and Glencadam at Brechin, in the east of Scotland.

We also have some newcomers this year, in the form of Scottish liqueur producer Stivy’s. The Stirling-based maker has a number of vodka-based liqueurs in its portfolio including Stivy’s Kola Spirit Liqueur, Raspberry Ripple, Sticky Toffee Pudding, and Hot Banana, along with a range of ciders.

Meanwhile, Hamburg-based Knut Hansen Dry Gin will also be exhibiting at the show for the first time, giving visitors the chance to taste its gin, as well as helping our team keep the drinks flowing as one of our G&T bar suppliers.

 

Wine

Angus Dundee isn’t the only business coming back for more. Jackie Fast, the BBC’s Apprentice star who turned her hand to selling wine last year, is returning for 2019 with her Canadian icewine label, Rebel Pi.

Meanwhile, Italian wine company Casa Paladin is also showcasing its range at this year’s show. Paladin has four estates spread across Italy from Lombardy to Tuscany.

Finally, Coravin, the US-based wine tech business, is also coming back to the show in April. Its first product, the Coravin Wine Preservation Opener, was launched in 2011 and pours wine without removing the cork from the bottle.
