Barton's Wines & Spirits
Introducing our official show retailer
We’re pleased to announce our official show retailer for The Spirit Show will be Barton’s Wines & Spirits, a fast growing, independent retailer/wholesaler of premium alcoholic products. From humble beginnings in Essex, UK, BWS is now serving customers nationwide thanks to genuine word of mouth recommendations and positive feedback. Privately owned, they are committed to providing a first class service to everyone they supply, including some of the best venues and companies throughout the country.
With over two thousand lines currently available and an ever expanding collection, they can provide the best and brightest drinks on the market for the discerning drinker alongside the familiar brands the nation loves.
Tim Barton-Wines, founder of Barton’s Wines & Spirits, says The Spirit Show is a long-overdue opportunity for producers to present their merchandise in a customer-specific marketplace.
“There is nothing like this anywhere” he explains. “The event will showcase the complete spectrum of the UK drinks industry under one roof, and visitors will be able to talk to distillers in person, sample unlimited products, take part in professional masterclasses and buy on the day. It’s a unique opportunity to get behind the industry and access some incredible brands; the fact that we have sold almost 3000 tickets six weeks ahead of the show tells us that consumers have been waiting for this experience.”
“Most of the exhibitors are small premium brands across a whole spectrum of spirits, from gin, rum and whisky to liqueurs and cocktails. It’s a mix that represents the growing UK industry” says Tim. “We believe that Brexit will be a bonus for home-grown distillers. There are some interesting companies out there, producing innovative and exciting spirits. Our aim is to give them a platform and give consumers an opportunity to see and experience what’s in the market.”
Exhibitors at the show will have the option to sell directly from their stand alongside having products stocked in the Spirit Show Shop. The show app will allow visitors to mark their favourite spirits which they can then purchase at the end of the show as they exit through the shop.
