Blog: Olly WehringLIWF & Distil - we're here

Olly Wehring | 21 May 2008

It's day two of the LIWF & Distil here in London, and our website quietude yesterday (20 May) was only because we were all hairing round the hall from dawn to dusk. Despite what felt like a slow day, crowd-wise, yesterday, I've been told that numbers were actually up for the first day.

Today, Wednesday, however, is the big one. It feels like everyone who's anyone in the industry is here today, and just-drinks is no exception.

If you'd like to put a face to a name, or just compare the photo to the real thing, then do call round at our stand at G18, or email me direct at

We're waiting for your call.
