What is the Spirit Show?

The history of the show is brief but its rise as a must-attend event for the bar industry has been rapid! The first edition took place in December 2016. Originally launched as a tasting event for the general public, it was the first exhibition to bring all the spirit categories together under one roof and make them the star of the show. Not second to food, wine, beer or cocktails.

The organisers were surprised at how many members of the drinks and hospitality wanted to come along to the show. Why? Especially when there are other more established trade events elsewhere. The answer was and still is simple – The Spirit Show does what it says on the tin, it focusses on spirits.  Whether it’s an independent distiller just launching in the market or an established brand, the spirits aren’t lost amongst other products

The organisers also understand how precious your time is away from your bar.  The relatively boutique size and prime location of the event means you can meet with 150 exhibitors and sample hundreds of products in 2-3 hours, minimising time away from your establishment.

Who will I meet?

Independent distillers, importers, distributors and everything in between.  Some companies are so new they’ll be launching at the show, so it will be a unique opportunity to try these products before they hit the market.
