Last year was an amazing year for the Beers, Wines and Spirits (BWS) team. I’m delighted to say that we’ve started 2019 by scooping not one, but two awards at this year’s prestigious Drinks Retailing Awards; Convenience Chain of the Year and Innovative Retailer of the Year.

The Drinks Retailing Awards is the crème de la crème for the drinks industry. To say that we were not only nominated, but selected to win these amazing awards by a panel of industry experts just makes me even more proud of the team.

Over the past twelve months we’ve brought in wine in different formats – my personal favourite being the sparkling Pinot Grigio can. We’re always on the look-out for way to keep our BWS categories exciting and relevant by constantly scouring the world for new ideas. We’re confident that we’ll be able to spring a few surprises in the coming year – watch this space!
