Drinks Business Awards Drinks Company & On-Trade Supplier of the Year

It has been quite a week! After being named number one in the Harpers Top 50 Drinks Wholesalers 2022 list on Monday (6th June), we were announced yesterday as winners of both the On-Trade Supplier of the Year and the Drinks Company of the Year at The Drinks Business Awards 2022.

This is the second year in a row we have been named Drinks Business Awards Drinks Company of the Year, and a reclaiming of the On-Trade Supplier of the Year title that we won in 2020 and were shortlisted for last year.

The Drinks Business Awards judges commented that “[Liberty Wines is] one of the success stories of on-trade suppliers” and “unanimously declared” us the “stand out winner” of this year’s Drinks Company of the Year, “despite a set of extremely capable competitors.” With “no chink in its armour,” the judges added, “not only was [Liberty Wines] lauded for its sustainable credentials, staff retention, incredible range, and ‘really high levels’ of customer support, but was also complemented for growing its business both impressively and profitably… Indeed, the business was further praised for ‘maintaining its DNA: they are not overlooking the things that make them really special.’”

We are truly proud of these awards - they are thanks to our portfolio of world class producers who share our values and high standards, as well as the hard work of the whole Liberty Wines team.

As we celebrate our 25th anniversary year, we would like to take this opportunity to thank all our producers, customers, and colleagues.
