Drinks Retailing Awards 2022 - Winners!

We are absolutely delighted to announce that we were the proud winners of 'Regional Chain of the Year' at the Drinks Retailing Awards 2022 this week. This award is given to the best independent retailer with 2-10 shops that has 'demonstrated its own commercial success and contributed to the overall health of the specialist drinks retailing sector.'

Our fellow finalists for this award were Jeroboams (London) and The Old Garage Wine & Deli (Truro). Last year's winners were Lea & Sandeman (London). We were also finalists for the Independent Spirits Retailer of the Year (along with Scotland's Carnegie Whisky Cellars) but were pipped to the post by the brilliant Gerry's Wines & Spirits (London). 

In order to win, we had to submit a detailed entry form which covered all aspects of the business from buying, logistics, to marketing, merchandising and staff training. We also sent photos of our shops and examples of our marketing materials. We were interviewed by the judges about our entry, and finally a mystery shopper was sent to one of our locations to have a look for themselves!

We are extremely proud of this achievement, and delighted to have official recognition for the hard work put in by each and every member of our rapidly growing team over the past twelve months. 

We hope you will join us in raising a glass to the whole OWC team!
