Moutai Supports Innovations in Gastronomy

The Bar of the Year Awards, organised by Ireland’s leading magazine in the industry – Licensing World, are the premium awards for the licensed trade, providing the ultimate stamp of approval for the best of the best in the industry.  It is a recognition dedicated to the best bars and people contributing to the success of a venue in terms of visibility, staffs’ knowledge, quality of service, and of course, innovations. 


Now in their 17th year of running, the Bar of the Year Awards are dedicated to raise the profile of the licensed trade and remind consumers of the excellent service and quality that exists today within the gastronomy industry.  Hundreds of senior decision makers and talents across the licensing industry, from group directors and business owners to general managers and bartenders, will be participating in the event. 


The grant ceremony will be held at the Clayton Hotel on 22 Aug 2022.  From over 500 entries, the judges have whittled down the shortlist to 176 outstanding bars to compete for around 25 awards.  All shortlisted premises are eligible for the Dingle Gin People’s Choice Awards, voted for by the public.  Voting will be carried out provincially in Dublin, Leinster, Munster, Connacht/Ulster with the winners of each province announced on the night from which the coveted Dingle Gin People’s Choice winner will be chosen.  There will be a tasting session at the ‘Tasting Village’ right before the ceremony starts, and Moutai will be serving neat and cocktail samples that guarantees to provide unique and special experience for our guests. 


As part of the long and legendary Chinese liquor culture, Moutai uses the mellow liquor as a medium to tell its stories to the world, promoting the integration of cultures, and supports the gastronomy industry to strive for  innovations.  We are proud to sponsor the ‘Innovation Bar of the Year’ award in the Bar of the Year Awards 2022 to bring recongnition to bars that are constantly striving to push the boundaries in providing new sensations and experience for their customers.  Judges will assess bars that demonstrate high levels of innovation in their drinks range, bar design, and events running at their premises.
