Happy new year, and welcome once again to our annual Sunday Business Post Gold Star Awards.

Every year, these awards celebrate outstanding innovation across the wine and spirits business in Ireland.

The business employs tens of thousands of people in wine shops, restaurants, hotels, supermarkets, off-licences, cocktail bars, import businesses, bonded warehousing, transportation, as well as in distilleries, breweries and the odd hardy vineyard. It even keeps armies of Vat, Customs and Excise officers busy.
