Voting Now Open!

We are delighted to launch the 2018 Scottish Bar and Pub Awards.

As usual, we are inviting nominations for the various categories from the trade and from customers too. If you are a rep and have trade customers who you feel deserve to be nominated please put them forward. We will also be inviting customers to vote for their favourite bars and pubs too.

As last year all the winning bars and pubs will be put forward for the accolade Sunday Mail Pub of the Year.

This year for the first time we have an award supported by Buzzworks and Flow – the two companies have collaborated to seek out enterprising young entrepreneurs, who they will mentor over the next 12 months.

Our sponsors this year include: BII, Buzzworks, Caledonia Inns, Critics Choice, Diageo, Disaronno, Flow, Gordon & MacPhail, Inverarity Morton, Kopparberg, Molson Coors, Wm Grant & Sons brands include Glenfiddich Single Malt Whisky, Hendrick’s Gin and Sailor Jerry; and the Sunday Mail.

Our final categories and sponsors will be revealed next month, but keep checking the website for updates.

In another change this year we will be surveying bar staff and customers to find out Scotland’s favourite spirits. These will be unveiled on the night.

Good luck!
