The Drinks Business Green Awards 2021 shortlist

After many hours of impassioned judging on Zoom, we are delighted to reveal the shortlist for The Drinks Business Green Awards 2021.

Now in its 12th year, the Green Awards was launched to draw attention to those drinks businesses that are doing everything they can to reduce their impact on the environment.

Below you’ll find all the companies that have been shortlisted for this year’s awards, except for those entered into the personality categories, the winners of which will be revealed at a live London-based ceremony from 3-5pm at The Club at The Ivy on Monday 29 November.

The Water Management Award and Best Green Initiative will also be announced at the ceremony.

Our judges were particularly impressed at the quality of the entries this year, with one judge declaring this to be the best ever set of entries seen in this long-running awards programme.

The drinks business is grateful to our brilliant line-up of partners for the 2021 Green Awards, which include leading Portuguese cork producer Amorim; UK Champagne and fine wine importer Pol Roger Portfolio, and Welsh water brand Ty Nant.

Read on to find out which companies have been shortlisted. If you would like to attend the awards ceremony at The Ivy next Monday then please register your interest by emailing Isabel Distin at
