just-drinks.com editor's weekly highlights
In This Issue...
Much as people belly-ache about the scale, the transport issues and the weather, last week’s London International Wine & Spirit Fair was – from just-drinks’ perspective, at least – quite possibly the best yet.
As usual, everyone who is anyone in the wine industry was out in force, and we managed to nail down the CEOs of both KWV and Constellation Europe for exclusive interviews – keep your eyes peeled for these in the coming weeks.
On the spirits side, we had two pieces from the event, highlighting how colourful the sector continues to be – Whyte & Mackay’s suggestion that the spirits trade look to dialogue to solve its problems in India was followed by an outspoken attack on the UK drinks industry when it comes to Scotch.
Whilst the spirits side of the event was somewhat light on attendees again – the LIWSF’s plans for next year should see the section get a much-needed boost in the arm.
Naturally, we’ll be there next year, bringing you everything that happens, as it happens.
Until next time...

The focus at this year’s London International Wine & Spirit Fair was more heavily on the off-trade than ever before, confirming for Chris Losh that the organisers have all but abandoned attempts to target the on-premise sector. And while he understands that it makes sense, it has clearly put him in a nostalgic mood.
