The Grocer Drink Awards deliver the real deal when it comes to great tipples

first_imgGold standard: Fentimans was one of the winners on the nightSadly, David Beckham couldn’t attend The Grocer Drink Awards on Monday. We tried to get him involved, honest, but we hear he’s too busy talking head lice with HuffPost these days.It’s a shame Becks couldn’t make it, because Haig Clubman, the brand the star part-owns with spirits giant Diageo, scooped a gold medal win, thanks to glowing reviews from consumers and expert judges alike.Haig Clubman’s performance in the awards is particularly impressive because the brand goes against all the rules of whisky. There isn’t a whisper of an age statement or Highland region, and its bottle looks, quite frankly, like a posh Eau de Toilette.Meanwhile, the cider win wasn’t scooped by one of the UK’s prestigious West Country cider houses, or even a bestselling own-label offering. Instead, it was won by none other than US whiskey giant Jack Daniel’s for its recently launched Tennessee Cider. A curveball indeed.That’s without mentioning that Aldi raked in three wins for its own-label lines, its Medusa Ruby Red Ale seeing off competition from some seriously well-established brands.But that’s what makes The Grocer’s booze awards (run in association with Cambridge Market Research) stand out, and, I dare say, considerably heightens the stakes. No drink has won its gold medal by virtue of any of its price, marketing or even taste credentials alone.A resounding endorsementWin one of The Grocer Drink Awards, and it’s a resounding endorsement of the whole package, thanks to the fact that bona fide shoppers and experts’ views are weighted equally in our judging process. After all, it’s ordinary consumers who ultimately decide whether booze brands sink or swim.Needless to say, though, the experts we do enlist aren’t just snooty wine snobs and bearded beer geeks. They’re pub owners, bartenders, brewers and buyers – people who genuinely understand the business of selling booze, and what really constitutes ‘great value for money’.It means genuine innovation is celebrated, and smaller and crossover brands that might otherwise get sniffed at by armchair commentators are given a chance to shine.So while this year’s awards are over – and believe me, we saw them through with a bang (I’d wager more than a few hangovers needed a thorough nursing across the drinks industry on Tuesday morning) – they’ve set an exceptionally high benchmark for next year.We can’t guarantee any sports stars will attend, but I hear Conor McGregor’s ‘Notorious’ whiskey may hit shelves in the near future. Perhaps he’ll be ready to challenge another champ by next November.Cheers!last_img read more

EURO 2016 Qualifiers: With Rooney injured, Walcott eyes England striker role

first_imgArsenal’s Theo Walcott is hoping to lead the line for England if Wayne Rooney does not recover from an ankle injury in time to face Estonia at Wembley on Friday.The Manchester United and England captain is a major doubt for the Euro 2016 qualifier after missing two training sessions, with England manager Roy Hodgson reportedly set to name Gary Cahill skipper if Rooney misses the game.Hodgson has used Walcott mostly on the right for England, but the 26-year-old has impressed in a central role for his club this season and has admitted that is where he wants to play for the national team as well.”I know everyone would like to see me up front,” Walcott told reporters before the Estonia game.”Playing there for England, that’s what I want to do.”England qualified for next year’s finals in France with a 6-0 victory in San Marino on Sept. 5 and have won all eight of their qualifiers so far. Walcott, who grabbed a brace in the San Marino game and has 12 goals in his last 14 Premier League starts, revealed that his improved form was down to advice from Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger and former team mate Thierry Henry, who is back at the club in a coaching role.”He (Wenger) asked if I could be more aggressive on the pitch,” Walcott said.”I actually said (to Wenger), ‘Do you want me to start kicking people?’ That was my first reaction. He said, ‘No, I’m not saying that.'”Again he wanted me to be more aggressive in terms of running at players, closing them down, tracking back, being there and in their faces,” Walcott added.The striker also said Henry has been a key factor in his improvement. “I have been chatting to him on a personal level behind the scenes as well to learn things from him,” Walcott said.”It is a great tool to have in the locker … I’ve had quite a few words with him about some of the games I’ve played.”He has just given me his analysis and if I’ve needed to ask him some questions about it, he’s always there,” he added.–Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM.
