Family- owned independent food and wine retailer Booths has been crowned Supermarket of the Year at the Decanter Retailer Awards 2020.
The prestigious awards recognise the best wine retailers based on range, service and innovation.
Decanter is the wine industry’s go-to publication for wine enthusiasts, connoisseurs and wine trade professionals.
The awards are judged by five experts, including Masters of Wine Peter Richards and Andy Howard, wine writer Peter Ranscombe, Kate Hawkings and Laura Clay, chairman of the Association of Wine Educators.
Booths beat stiff competition including Waitrose, Marks & Spencer, the Co-op and Aldi to win the award which they won in 2017 and were runner-up in 2019.
Booths was recently awarded five medals, including two golds, in the International Wine and Spirit Competition for its Booths brand wines and were named Supermarket of the Year by the People’s Choice Awards earlier this year.
Booths wine buyer Victoria Anderson said: “I’m absolutely delighted with this award, which is a win for our whole team at Booths.
“Sharing our love of great wine is a big part of what makes Booths a very special business.”
Edwin Booth, chairman of Booths, who served as the wine buyer at Booths for many years said: “I’m enormously proud of Victoria and this recognition for her work is richly deserved.
“Victoria is a buyer of exceptional taste and talent. She ensures that every bottle we stock at Booths is a joy to drink.”
