Lord Karan Bilimoria founded Cobra Beer in 1989. He launched Cobra Beer when he realised that Britain deserved a better, smoother, less gassy lager. A beer which complements food, and can appeal to both ale and lager drinkers alike. Originally imported from Bangalore, Cobra is brewed to a traditional Indian recipe with a modern twist for an impossibly smooth taste. Only the finest natural ingredients are used including barley malt, rice, maize, wheat, hops and yeast. Cobra Beer is now the No.1 selling beer in Indian restaurants in UK, and is also one of the strongest and best known brands in the world beer category. The Cobra Beer portfolio is also one of the most highly awarded for its quality. In the Monde Selection Awards, one of the most prestigious quality awards in the world for beer, Cobra Beer has consistently won gold medals for quality. This year Cobra Beer again won 3 Gold Medals for quality, as well as the prestigious Grand Gold Medal for 2 Cobra variants. This brings our tally of gold medals to 88 since 2001.

With a history dating back to 1783, Schweppes is a much loved brand which is instantly recognisable to consumers, and is a good choice for operators looking to make the most of the growing popularity of mixers. The brand has been trusted by The Royal Family since 1836* and is regularly voted as the best tasting classic mixer on the market by consumers and expert panels alike, including The Times in August 2015.

This year Schweppes is undergoing a revamp of the brand’s pack design with a bold, effervescent new look to showcase its premium credentials as part of the brands biggest campaign in 20 years. Schweppes mixers now come with striking new black labels which demonstrate the brand’s long-standing heritage as the ‘creator of bubbles since 1783’.

The brand also recently launched Schweppes Sparkling Juice Drinks to help licensees tap into the popularity of adult soft drinks. The new line-up includes Grapefruit & Blood Orange and Lemon & Elderflower variants and with only 20kcal per 100ml, the sparkling juice drinks are one of the lowest calorie options of their kind in the adult special sector.

We are proud to be sponsoring the Cateys 2016 and wish all the nominees the best of luck!
