Encirc, the glass manufacturer, bottler, and logistics company will sponsor the Supermarket Wine Buying Team of the Year Award at the 2019 IWSC awards, which recognises innovation in sourcing trophy-winning wines to its portfolio in an extremely promotional market.
Reg & Co’s Commercial Partnerships team work with the International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC) to provide support to them in identifying and securing sponsorship from commercial partners such as Encirc, Vivino, and Double Dutch, who share the same standards in achieving excellence within the alcohol, wine and spirits industries.
For over 50 years, the aim of the IWSC has been to recognise, award, and celebrate excellence in wines and spirits across the world.
Each year, award entries are received from around 90 countries across the globe and each sample is considered according to its class and treated with the same care and consideration in the IWSC’s dedicated tasting premises in London. 400 world-class wine and spirits experts spend up to seven months of the year judging the entries and considering the best in each class. It’s because of this dedication and expertise, that the IWSC is proud to set the industry benchmark for quality.
Each year, in November, the IWSC Awards Banquet is held at the Guildhall in London and it plays host to over 600 industry professionals who come togther to find out the results and to network with their peers.
Sponsors play an essential role in the success of the IWSC, and it’s ability to promote, celebrate and support the medal and trophy winners throughout the year including at the annual awards, at regular tastings, and at hundreds of events that the IWSC uses to showcase it’s winners.
Encirc, as a market leader in the production of quality glassware, and one of the only businesses to have a vertical approach to glass production, bottling, and logistics, makes for a truly symbiotic partnership. and one which will add value to all participants.
