  • Best Drinks Company of the Year

  • This is the most coveted award in Asia. Under scrutiny: your business development and diversification, sales/profit growth, employee management, new product development, market penetration, brand development and corporate responsibility… line up brand owners, agents and producers, it could be you!
  • Best Retail Award
    (Wine, Spirits & Beer)

  • The winner of this award will have no equal and will define excellence in drinks retailing during the year. You will have achieved significant sales growth in your respective Asian market(s) and will have an impressive display of value and range for your customers.
  • On-trade Supplier of the Year

  • Judges will take into account the recommendation and opinion of customers and look for evidence in high standards of service, including 24 hour delivery, flexibility and adaptability to the strains of the restaurant and hotel business. They will also award on-trade suppliers on the quality of their range and pricing, plus attention to environmental issues in a high carbon impact business model.
  • Fine Wine Retailer of the Year

  • This award recognises top sales and profit performance amongst fine wine retailers who specialise in selling wines priced at HK$ 300+ both in-store and online, to Asian consumers. Judges will be looking for information that illustrates diversity of wine regions, unequalled specialisation in given regions, excellence in customer service and education, quality of wine tastings and dinners.


  • Best Drinks Event

  • This category is designed to encompass a range of events, from annual tastings by companies or generics, to exhibitions, masterclasses or seminars, that happened in Asia.
  • To succeed in this category please clearly illustrate what made your event successful (include both physical and virtual events). This should include an explanation of the initial concept, how it was planned and promoted, what it set out to achieve before clearly stating the results. To help us ascertain the level of success, please include visitor numbers, attendee feedback and revenues generated. Ideally, the entry should include a summary of the aims, the timeline, the costs, and, most importantly, the results, all expressed succinctly in an initial awards pitch.
