The Wine & Spirits Show
Trade Session - Friday 12th April

The Wine & Spirits Show will return to London in April, offering an unmissable two-day programme of tasting, networking and learning for drinks fans and members of the trade. The show is a friendly, relaxed and informative tasting which successfully gathered 1500 wine and spirits lovers in 2018.

Whilst being mainly a consumer event, our visitors were mainly young educated drinks enthusiasts, the first show was also attended by 350 members of the trade.

The Wine & Spirits Show – what to expect?

  • The Wine Hall will be gathering producers from around the world. Last year we hosted producers and brands such as Santa Rita, Consorzio Delle Venezie, Digby Fine English, New Zealand Winegrowers and more. We also had the pleasure of hosting the Apprentice star Jackie Fast who introduced her Canadian Icewine Rebel Pi and will be returning to our April show.
  • The Spirits Hall will host international spirits brands. Gin was the star of last year’s show with exhibitors such as Horse Guards London Dry Gin, The Darmouth Distillery Co., Masons Yorkshire Gin and Unit Six Gin.
  • The Global Masters Wine Zone. The wines on pour have been selected by a tasting panel composed exclusively of Masters of Wine, Master Sommeliers and top buyers. Our team of journalists will be there to guide the visitors through the award-winning wines.The Global Masters Spirits Zone will allow guests to sample a wide selection of top- performing spirits, as judged by the experts on the Spirits Masters competitions.
  • Also returning to this year’s show will be a New Products Zone, showcasing the latest releases in the wine and spirits industries, keeping attendees abreast of emerging drinks trends in the market
  • Our expert bartenders will be mixing delicious and refreshing gin and tonics at the G&T Bar. They will be on hand to demonstrate how to create the perfect drink with different tonic waters and garnishes.
  • Two rooms will be dedicated to Masterclasses, which will be free for visitors to attend. Masterclasses taking place on Friday will be trade orientated.and for the rest of the show the masterclasses will be for consumers. Hosting a masterclass is the perfect way to introduce your brand and products to an educated audience of wine and spirits enthusiasts.

Amy Hopkins, editor of The Spirits Business, said: “The first Wine & Spirits Show truly was a roaring success, bringing the brightest drinks brands together under one roof. The world is awash with drinks fairs, but few reflect the true nature of drinking as a sociable and occasion-led activity. Imbibers flit between categories but seek one thing across the board: quality. “We can’t wait to welcome even more industry peers and drinks fans to our next show in April. For anyone with an interest in wine, beers and spirits, The Wine & Spirits Show 2019 promises to be an unmissable event.”
