United Kingdom – December 2020

LUXlife magazine announces the winners of the 2020 Food & Drink Awards.
This year has been the harbinger of challenge, and perhaps no more so than for the hospitality industries. Simple things, such as having food traffic, have been far from guaranteed. For many, it’s been a year of ‘worst case scenario’. Something that couldn’t possibly be planned for. However, that’s not to say that 2020 has been completely void of achievements and success. Because, out of the many challenges 2020 has brought to many a threshold, it has also offered an opportunity to adapt in unexpected ways. Businesses have capitalized on uncertainty and wielded impressive reputations and expertise to bring about new achievements. New successes. New growth. It is with that in mind that LUXlife launched this year’s Food and Drink Awards. To celebrate every success, no matter how small they may seem. Commenting on the winners of this year’s awards program, Coordinator Katherine Benton stated: “It’s been a difficult year for the hospitality and food and drink industries. With that, I offer my sincere congratulations to all of those recognized. I hope you have a better and thriving year ahead.”

“For these brands to win gold is a huge compliment not only to their products, but also represents their commitment to creating excellent Spirits,” says Las Vegas Spirit Awards CEO and Executive Director, Eddie Rivkin.” Every year the quality (and quantity) of entries has improved significantly. I can’t wait to see what happens in 2020, it’s going to be amazing,” says Rivkin.
Alan Miller, founder and CEO of Blue Marble Cocktails, had this to say about the new win, “Every award is an amazing accomplishment being a family owned and operated company. Myself, my fiancé, my sons, and their significant others all work for this company, so every win validates that you do not have to come from this industry; you just need to put in the hard work, long hours, lots of passion, and good quality ingredients so the product is remarkable against others. We are so honored for this gold medal addition from the Las Vegas Global Spirit Awards.”

ABOUT THE LAS VEGAS GLOBAL SPIRIT AWARDS
