The country’s leading liquor brands, venues, retailers and bar teams were honoured last night at the 25th annual Australian Liquor Industry Awards (ALIA).
Members of the on- and off-premise liquor sectors from all around Australia gathered at Randwick Racecourse in Sydney to celebrate the industry’s night of nights, with this year’s theme Halloween.
The proceedings kicked off with pre-drinks by Coopers; throughout the night, guests were treated to networking bars from Australian Brewery, Coopers, Pimm’s, Rum Co. of Fiji, T’Gallant and Squealing Pig. The night culminated with an after party sponsored by Mister Mixer.
