It’s time to enter the World Drinks Awards

It seems as though the results of the 2015 World Drinks Awards and World Whiskies Awards have only just been announced – but for us, it’s time to do it all over again. Entries have been pouring in for the World Beer Awards and we are looking forward to hosting an international panel of judges for Round 1 this week. Gin, Rum and Vodka are now open for entries and the other eight drinks categories are due to open next month.

Auchrannie Resort crowned Scottish Hotel of the Year 2015

Paragraph’s busy awards season concluded on Sunday 19 April as the results of the Scottish Hotel Awards 2015 were announced in Glasgow. The event was hosted by comedian Fred MacAuley at the Crowne Plaza where 450 guests enjoyed a three course dinner and entertainment from The Dolls, Bags of Rock and Antony Costa.

Following a long judging process including 9 months of research visits and 3 months of mystery visits across 9 regions, the winners were finally selected. Auchrannie Resort was named Scottish Hotel of the Year having won the Family Hotel of the Year category. The complete list of winners can be found here.

Awards season at Paragraph

It’s that time of the year when the music, film and television industry celebrate and reward the companies and individuals that have made a marked contribution within their field. Here at Paragraph, it is no different, as last week we held the most prestigious events and awards in the whiskies and spirits calendar in London.

The Whiskies and Spirits Conference Europe took place at the Waldorf Hilton Hotel on Thursday 19 March with speakers from some of the most influential companies in the industry, and during lunch the results of the World Drinks Awards 2015 were presented. That evening, we concluded our awards presentations at the Whisky Magazine Awards 2015 dinner where the World Whiskies Awards, the Icons of Whisky Global and Hall of Fame inductees were announced.

On Friday 20 and Saturday 21 March it was time for London’s premier whisky show, Whisky Live, as it returned to the stunning surrounding of the Honourable Artillery Company. A full roundup will be available to read in the digital edition of the next issue of Whisky Magazine. We look forward to doing it all again next year!

Paragraph Publishing rebrands

As the media industry has evolved, so have the activities in which Paragraph Publishing specialises. Originally just a magazine publisher, we soon moved in to web sites, then events and awards, and most recently customer publishing and client services. With this shift across all elements of media, it seemed timely to reflect this in our company name and positioning. We have, therefore, rebranded as Paragraph, with the the list of services we offer clearly identified under our new logo, and we look forward to the next decade of developments within the sectors we serve and the media we offer.
