Wine & Spirits Show names first exhibitors for 2019

The Spirits Business and the drinks business have revealed the first spirits exhibitors for the upcoming Wine & Spirits Show in April.

Launched in collaboration between the two magazines, The Wine & Spirits Show will return to The Royal Horseguards Hotel in London on 12 and 13 April.

Over the course of the two days, the event will bring leading wine and spirits brands together for an exciting programme of discussion, tasting and learning.

Around 1,500 visitors attended the inaugural Wine & Spirits Show, which has been hailed as an unmissable new event for both trade members and drinks enthusiasts.

This year’s G&T Bar will feature a number of leading brands including Scottish brand Orkney Gin Rhubarb Old Tom, Germany’s Knut Hansen Dry Gin and Cornwall-based Caspyn Dry Gin.

Returning to this year’s show as an exhibitor is independent Scotch whisky producer Angus Dundee Distillers. The company owns Tomintoul distillery on Speyside and Glencadam at Brechin, in the east of Scotland. Last year, the distiller showcased its Tomintoul 16 Year Old, Tomintoul Tlàth, Glencadam 13 Year Old, and Glencadam 17 Year Old Triple Cask Portwood Finish.

New to the show is Scottish liqueur producer Stivy’s. The Stirling-based maker has a number of vodka-based liqueurs in its portfolio including Stivy’s Kola Spirit Liqueur, Raspberry Ripple, Sticky Toffee Pudding, and Hot Banana, along with a range of ciders.

Hamburg-based Knut Hansen Dry Gin will also be exhibiting at the show for the first time, giving visitors the chance to taste its gin, which takes its name from a legendary sailor called Knut Hansen.

A full schedule of masterclasses will be announced in due course.
