Personality of the Year Awards 2016 winners revealed

Drinks: Drinks

The winners of Imbibe‘s 2016 Personality of the Year Awards were announced tonight during an exclusive celebration that attracted top names in the industry to The Croc Bowling Alley and Dive Bar at London’s Ham Yard Hotel.

Inbetween delicious drinks from our sponsors, a bit of catching up over canapés, and a lucky strike or two from enthusiastic bowlers, we rewarded and celebrated the most inspiring, innovative and talented members of the on-trade.

‘The overall standard of nominees this year was higher than ever, and there are some amazing winners from all over the country and every bit of the on-trade,’ said Imbibe editor Chris Losh. ‘It’s been a fantastic evening and we’re already looking forward to next year.’
