Blog: Olly Wehring2008 - That's a wrap

Olly Wehring | 23 December 2008

Well, that's that for another year. And what a year it's been for us here on just-drinks. We've had an amazing 12 months, travelling the world and meeting the great and the good of the global drinks industry, while making many new friends (I mean, contacts) on the way.

Both Chris Mercer (our deputy editor) and I would like to thank all of you for your continued support in 2008, without which we wouldn't be here. It's been an absolute blast, and we both can't wait for 2009 - whatever it may bring for our industry.

just-drinks is taking a bit of a break now, closing for business at end of play today (23 December), but we'll be back, refreshed, raring to go and at least a few pounds heavier on Friday 2 January.

Happy holidays to you, dear reader. We'll raise a glass or 40 to you over the next few days.
