By Matt Hall | 12th March 2020
A pub chain with three venues in Gloucestershire is celebrating an award win at the 2020 Publican Awards.
Cirrus Inns has the Horse & Groom in Bourton-on-the-Hill, The Kings Arms in Didmarton and The Lion Inn in Winchcombe, as part of its collection.
The Publican Awards' 'Best Drinks Offer' accolade is awarded to a pub company that demonstrates drinks retail excellence, with drinks sales a key part of the company's total profits.
Cirrus impressed the judges with its emphasis on strong partnerships built with local producers, sustainability throughout its operations and exceptional staff training - awarding them the Best Drinks Offering in the country.
The firm stated that it is dedicated to supporting local suppliers and small businesses in the collection's areas, celebrating the best of traditional British producers and championing them as a point of heritage and not as a passing trend.
Fabien Garrigues, head of beverage at Cirrus Inns said: "The Cirrus Family are over the moon to be recognised in our industry for the Best Drinks Offer and are very proud of the exceptional partnerships we have created and nurtured with our local suppliers.
"We pride ourselves in not only choosing the best local beers, wines and spirits, but also our commitment to offering something new and exciting for our guests to try at any one of our sites.
"Our focus is to create outstanding experiences for drinkers and non-drinkers throughout our sites, with the help of our extremely talented teams."
The awards took place at the Battersea Evolution at Battersea Power Station on Wednesday 4 March, with some of the UK's best operators in the business crowned.
