On 01st December 2022 more than 1,400 guests, including suppliers and Sainsbury’s colleagues, were welcomed in true New York style at Battersea Evolution for a memorable evening of networking, interactive brand activations, immersive drinks tasting and fundraising event supporting GroceryAid (the charity for the grocery industry) and Comic Relief (UK charity, with a vision of a just world, free from poverty).

This year, drawing on the deep levels of trust and warm relationships between us and Sainsbury’s, we had a unique opportunity to become a Bar Sponsor and to provide a free drinks reception for all. Guests were treated to a bespoke menu, reflecting the current trends – Craft Cocktails based on crystal clear vodka, wine-based cocktails selection and luxury Red Caviar “Ikroff”. The main focus was on our exclusive brands: “Stumbras Vodka”, “A. Le Coq” cocktails and a long-awaited newcomer of the year – Ukrainian Vodka “Harmony Day”.
It seems that the audience award went to our bartenders, as the taste of cocktails and drinks presentation was highly appreciated by industry leaders and influencers.

We shared the dinner table with the amazing Sainsbury’s young talents, which rock that wonderful evening with us. Incredible menu selection, full-bodied wine, delightful desserts and Anne-Marie’s performance lighted up this night with bright colours and emotions.

And alongside all this, the happy and smiling faces of so many of the guests made this evening one of the most fantastic event in December.
