For the first time individual outlets can nominate themselves for the Best Drinks Offer of the Year, be it for a bar, a pub, a group, a restaurant or a hotel. These entries will then go forward to an academy panel of expert judges and be assessed against the outlets that they have also nominated in these relevant categories.
Judges will be looking for excellence across any outlet or group's drinks offer. This will include all alcoholic drinks but be primarily be focused around its wine and spirits offer. Entrants are asked to provide details of their drinks strategy, buying and pricing policy and provide examples of relevant drinks and wine lists.
