Australian Drinks Awards

We are excited to announce that the 12th annual Australian Drinks Awards ceremony will be held on Thursday, July 18, 2024, at the Hilton Sydney.

Drinks Association CEO Georgia Lennon said: “We take immense pride in how the Australian Drinks Awards has evolved over the years. It’s become the premier platform for honouring excellence in the liquor industry, and it’s where we take the opportunity to celebrate the best-performing suppliers and brands.”

Last year, we celebrated Asahi Beverages’ two key business divisions, securing three of the four coveted Supplier Awards. Carlton & United Breweries and CUB Premium Beverages were jointly crowned 2023 Supplier of the Year, Carlton & United Breweries clinched the Category Management Award for the second consecutive year, while CUB Premium Beverages received the Supply Chain Management Award.

The Most Improved Supplier of the Year was a double win awarded to William Grant & Sons and Campari.

We also celebrated the power of strong and distinctive brands and the emergence of innovative newcomers, with 41 brand awards across Fan Favourites and those Gaining in Popularity.

The three Contribution to Industry Awards winners were Australian Vintage for Most Improved Gender Equity, Pernod Ricard Winemakers for Most Inclusive & Diverse Workplace, and Lion, who received the Corporate Social Responsibility Award - just ahead of family-owned Coopers Brewery, which received a Highly Commended acknowledgement.

Now it’s time to get ready to commemorate another successful year in drinks! Join us as we come together as an industry to celebrate excellence, innovation, and positive change.
