From their thriving bakery in Maidenhead, Berkshire, The Handmade Cake Company bakes high quality handmade cakes, traybakes, loaf cakes, individually wrapped cake bars and scones for coffee shops and restaurants across the UK and Europe. All of their cakes are scratch-baked using kitchen cupboard ingredients and large scale ‘traditional’ kitchen tools, creating authentic cakes any chef would be proud to call their own (and many do!). Their talented and dedicated team develop a wide range of creations, from the traditional to the contemporary, in a bakery with A grade BRC certification, and an experienced team of bakers and finishers who take huge pride in what they do. All cakes are pre-portioned, so that the caterer can defrost only as much as is needed, and immediately frozen to lock in the freshness before being distributed to frozen food wholesalers. In the hospitality sector, an increasing number of these cakes are being offered as desserts, particularly the gluten free variants, as the need to satisfy this growing market increases. Heating a single portion from frozen ensures the cakes are served at their freshest, as well as reducing unwanted wastage. In 2016, The Handmade Cake Company won no less than 9 Great Taste Awards, four of which were awarded to their gluten free cakes, which provides genuine independent recognition that these cakes really do taste quite special. Their fully segregated gluten free bakery produces an ever growing number of cakes, traybakes and now scones, all of which are licenced by Coeliac UK. The Gluten Free Range from the Handmade Cake Company

KalGUARD offers maximum benefits for limescale control Limescale control is recommended for any business located within a hard water area, and especially those that rely on the availability of hot water, such as restaurants, care homes, schools, leisure facilities and hotels. If left unchecked, limescale can lead to problems such as higher energy bills (British Water estimates that just 1.6mm of limescale can increase a heating system’s fuel requirement by up to 12%), as well as premature repairs, breakdowns and replacement of secondary hot water system components and appliances, business downtime, and unnecessary, unplanned capital expenditure. To inhibit the buildup of limescale, KalGUARD® from Sentinel Commercial is a scientifically- and independently-proven limescale control device which uses unique driven electrolytic technology. What’s more, KalGUARD is arguably the best limescale control device on the market in terms of overall cost-effectiveness, performance, ease of installation and maintenance. The only methodology approved in Part L KalGUARD, which comprises a zinc anode unit, water meter and controller, permanently ‘conditions’ water by dosing it with a very low level of stable zinc. This is achieved via a controlled electrolytic process, which uses a powered zinc anode and a copper cathode, forcing naturally-occurring calcium carbonate crystals to form as soft, non-deposit-forming aragonite rather than hard, deposit-forming calcite (limescale). Electrolytic technology is the only powered device-led methodology to be recommended by UK Building Services Compliance Guide to Part L. Furthermore, independent testing undertaken at Cranfield University has proven KalGUARD’s ability to reduce limescale.

Permanent limescale prevention

10

Forget temporary limescale control – KalGUARD continuously alters the chemical composition of calcium carbonate crystals for long-lasting protection and complete peace of mind. Not LSI dependent KalGUARD does not rely on water chemistry and ambient temperature having a positive Langelier Saturation Index (LSI), so there is never any need for extra units or additional water analysis and liaison between manufacturer and designer. As a point of note, KalGUARD can be designed on demand, not just according to pipe size.

One KalGUARD treats an entire system WRAS-approved KalGUARD is able to treat an entire system when installed on a rising main before pump and booster sets, providing a value-engineered solution to limescale control. There is no need for additional units to be purchased and installed at more than one location, such as where water draw-off is sparse and spasmodic. Maximum flexibility KalGUARD is proven to be suitable for successful use in conjunction with all types of heaters from leading OEM providers; there is no restriction for use with high heat flux density water heating equipment, such as continuous flow heaters, for example. This provides maximum flexibility for the designer or consulting engineer on choice of heater. Minimal maintenance Once commissioned, KalGUARD requires only a biannual service if the system filter is fitted. Moreover, no consumables are needed for its ongoing operation, while the zinc anode lasts up to 12 years. KalGUARD comes in a range of sizes, from 22mm through to 108mm. The system is already installed in thousands of commercial facilities across the UK, including those belonging to major supermarkets, leading hotel chains, universities, and international fast food outlets, providing proven energy, cost, and time saving limescale control.

Brasserie Abode to launch in Manchester at end of April

The 61-bedroom Abode Manchester hotel is to launch what could be the first of a new restaurant brand for the mid-market city centre hotel group, at the end of the month.

US: The Detroit Foundation Hotel is set to open next month. The 100-room hotel room is located in the former Detroit Fire Department headquarters. It will also be the home to The Apparatus Room, a new American restaurant offering locally sourced foods, and run by Michigannative and two Michelin-starred chef Thomas Lents.

The five-storey building is situated on the corner of West Larned Street and Washington Boulevard, across from the Cobo Center and just three blocks away from Campus Marius Park.

“Our team is thrilled to join the Detroit market,” said Mario Triccoci, co-founder and CEO Aparium Hotel Group, which is managing the property. “In creating this hotel, we are collaborating with local makers, artists and innovators to introduce a true Detroit experience for both locals and visitors. It’s an incredible time in Detroit and we’re excited and honoured that Foundation Hotel will have the opportunity to play a role in the city’s story.” The hotel is being designed in partnership with Simeone Deary Design Group.

Brasserie Abode will be an all-day venue in the style of a grand European café and bar. Its launch has been overseen by Alan Swinson, group associate director, food and beverage, of Andrew Brownsword Hotels, the owner of the Abode brand of five properties. After serving breakfast and brunch, menu options will include fritto misto and tartare sauce (£6); black pudding balls with piccalilli (£4), truffle cauliflower macaroni (£12), spaghetti lobster (£18), 7oz bavette steakfrites (£12), moules-frites (£12), rice pudding, sour cherry compote (£7), and chocolat liégeois (£7.50). Brasserie Abode will open until the early hours of the morning with entertainment provided by a resident DJ and a bar offering cocktails from mixologists. Stephanie Hocking previously told The Caterer: “Once Brasserie Abode Manchester is finished, we’ll look at the possibility of expanding the concept throughout the other Abode properties, tailored to each building and local market.” The Abode Manchester previously featured two dining concepts from chef Michael Caines, who was the food and beverage director of Andrew Brownsword Hotels until 2014. The five Abode hotels are located in Canterbury, Chester, Glasgow and Exeter, as well as Manchester. The Exeter hotel is to be rebuilt following a fire which destroyed the property in October 2016.

This is the ultimate tool for the enjoyment of our costumer and the team.” Yannick Loué - Royal William Yard, Plymouth

Guests try wines just for fun, or with the idea of buying, or as part of an event. We also use it for staff training and for our own entertainment and indulgence.

Peppermill interiors Family-run furniture supplier Peppermill Interiors has launched a range of new products this year, just in time for summer refurbs! Originally established as Peppermill Antiques over two decades ago, the company has changed its focus in recent years – moving away from antiques – and has recently undergone a rebrand. Now, the more aptly-named Peppermill Interiors is a go-to place for contemporary furniture and unique vintage pieces, selling a huge range of products to both domestic and commercial clients all over the world.

Hotelier & Hospitality Design

Peppermill supplies furniture to several high-profile customers, with Starbucks, Marriott Hotels, Nando’s and Harrods being among its list of clients. As well as chains and big-name companies, Peppermill also supplies furniture to a huge number of independent hotels, bars and pubs, and countless domestic clients, who return time and time again.

20

The company has been at its new premises in Staffordshire for over a year now, and the larger space has allowed Peppermill to suitably showcase its ever-expanding range of products. However, it is still a work in progress according to director Scott Humphreys: “We’ve still got a lot of exciting ideas to put into practice in our showroom. We’re currently building room sets, which will hopefully help our clients to envisage how our furniture can fit into their interiors, and we’re always thinking of fresh new ways to exhibit our stock and keep people engaged.” 2017 has already been an exceptionally busy year for the company, as it has seen over 50 new product launches in the first quarter alone. The new lines include a fresh selection of bar stools, dining tables and armchairs, as well as brand-new ventures for Peppermill, including a new collection of leather sofas and a fantastic range of outdoor furniture.

Scott Humphreys said: “Outdoor furniture is something we haven’t really stocked much of in the past, except for a few galvanised tables and chairs here and there. We’re really excited about this new line of furniture. Now is the key time for bars, pubs, cafes and hotels to be thinking about remodelling their outdoor seating areas for summer, so this range has arrived just in time for venue owners to take advantage of it.” A large on-site warehouse allows most reproduction items to be kept in stock in large quantities, which ensures a quick turnaround and creates shorter lead times for customers – something the company takes great pride in. You can see the full collection of new, vintage and bespoke furniture across two floors at Peppermill Interiors’ large showroom in Burntwood, Staffordshire. The showroom is open to the public six days a week: Monday-Friday 9am-5.30pm and Saturday 10am-5pm. See the latest arrivals at www.peppermillinteriors.com or subscribe to the mailing list for news and updates.

Grab A Bite Of The Hound Pound With The Dog Holiday Experts PetsPyjamas With increasingly busy lifestyles, the affordability struggles around having children and many women choosing to have babies later in life or not at all, pets are taking on a more important role in modern family life. Following suit is an increasing demand from pet owners for their pet’s products and services to be an extension of their own lifestyle choices, which naturally includes holidays and travel.

Hotelier & Hospitality Design

Having sent over 12,000 owners and 15,500 dogs on getaways since 2014, and with a net promoter score of 75, Europe’s number one pet friendly holiday bookers, PetsPyjamas, are leading the pack for giving canine guests and their owners an experience that keeps them coming back for more. Shifting the experience from merely dog-tolerant to truly dog-friendly, PetsPyjamas recognises that a warm welcome for a customer’s dog is how the travel and hospitality industry can entice, maximise and retain the lucrative hound pound.

22

PetsPyjamas CEO Gracia Amico says: “The travel and hospitality industry is waking up to the true value of the Hound Pound. Pet owners are willing to stretch their budget a little further if it means their dog can come too. If taking a break, customers travelling with pets tend to drink and dine on site throughout their stay because their pet can be by their side, or close by in their room, which in turn drives up a higher spend per guest.” PetsPyjamas work closely with their partners to create experiences dog owners will love. From exclusive packages, allinclusive deals, welcome boxes on arrival through to sausages at breakfast, all breaks are bookable via expert Pet Concierges, who have amassed a wealth of knowledge on what owners are looking for from a dog friendly establishment.

Putting the service in foodservice

At the start of the journey, of course, it is all about getting the basics right first- deliveries, product quality, value for money, communication about deliveries and out of stocks, and making that a seamless process. But then to really go above and beyond you need to understand a customer’s core needs and offer relevant additional services and extras that are tailored or make sense to them. True service excellence requires real engagement to help a customer get ahead in their business, to reward their loyalty and build the sort of true partnership that helps them evolve to become future fit.

Within Bidfood, we’ve taken the step of making service excellence central to our company mission: to deliver service excellence, make life easier and help customers to grow, and our values: care, share and dare. But we are very much at the start of our journey. We put the customer at the very heart of everything our business does, becoming truly streamlined to respond to their needs by putting in place seemingly invisible and flexible processes that make this work. To do this we’ve invested in people and management, root and branch training and engagement

It’s also about our leadership team getting engaged at grass roots level, in regular front-line feedback groups to hear ideas first hand, so they can fast track the ones that are key, and track the real impact of the changes we are making at an operational and customer level. We also do a lot of work behind the scenes to offer added-value to customers. We share insights, recipes, concepts, inspiration, nutritional information, advice, updates on changes to legislation and standards to make life easier for customers. You may have seen us talking about fortification recipes, nutrition and hydration week, our guidelines explaining the recent CQUIN1b scheme to name a few recent topics. We’re still on our service excellence journey, and will always have more to do and further to go, but if you’d like to consider a closer relationship with a foodservice supplier that delivers, our dedicated team of account managers, telesales advisors, and food development managers would be happy to help.

For Bidfood, great service goes beyond delivering boxes on time and at the right price.

For us, the job is never done, and we’re constantly looking at how we can be the best.

Bedding & Linens 3. Don’t underestimate the importance of quality bed linen Guests also expect and enjoy good quality, high thread count bed linen that can make a significant difference to the comfort of your beds. Try opting for a silky smooth cotton sateen that feels cool and soft against the skin to provide ultimate luxury for your guests.

4. Provide the perfect pillows The right pillow can make all the difference when it comes to a good night’s sleep, and guests will appreciate a soft, plump pillow to sink their head into. Renewing your pillows regularly will ensure that your beds are always a delight to sleep in.

Top 5 Tips to Creating The Perfect Night’s Sleep For Your Guests Kate Gough, Mitre Linen’s Customer Experience Manager Being able to offer your guests a truly unforgettable stay means you need to consider everything from the temperature of the room to the quality of the bedding and soft furnishings you use. Today’s customers have high expectations and providing a wonderful night’s sleep is an essential part of their stay. At Mitre Linen, we believe that a good night’s sleep does not happen by chance and with over 70 years’ experience in helping hoteliers providing their guests with the ultimate sleeping experience, we have listed our top tips for you, the Hotelier & Hospitality Design readers.

Hotelier & Hospitality Design

1. Consider the comfort of your beds and mattresses

24

Busy hoteliers can easily get carried away with so many responsibilities, meaning it can sometimes be easy to overlook the basics. I suggest getting into the mindset of your customer and every so often lying on your own beds to assess how comfortable they are. This will help you to understand whether a bed or mattress needs replacing. If you still have some use left in your mattresses, it is worth investing in a mattress topper to add that extra layer of luxury and enhance its comfort.

2. Ensure that your rooms are at the ideal temperature Getting the room temperature right can be tricky as no one likes a stuffy, overheated hotel room. We advise setting the thermostat to 18C, this optimum sleeping temperature will help guests to both fall asleep faster and to sleep well throughout the night. You might also want to consider some newly advanced technological products that can offer a twist your guests will appreciate without increasing your costs. For example, at Mitre we have introduced Coolguard, a clever, innovative pillow protector that comprises of temperature control properties to allow hoteliers to keep their pillows protected whilst doubling up to deliver a peaceful cooling sensation to guests all night long.

To really stand out, I also recommend offering a pillow menu so your guests can pick the perfect pillow based on their individual preferences. More and more hotels are seeking advice on creating a pillow menu to personalise their guests’ experience whilst accommodating to their needs. It is also important to consider using pillow protectors to keep your pillows feeling clean and fresh so they are always deliciously plump and inviting.

5. Ensure that your rooms are protected from any source of light when your guests need it most It is scientifically proven that light in the bedroom has a major impact on sleep quality. Avoid providing items that light up in the bedroom with artificial light, for example a digital clock on the bedside table. It is also essential to only use good quality, durable, blackout-lined curtains to prevent any outside light from entering the room and disturbing your guests’ sleep. What’s more, always ensure that your curtains perfectly fit your windows, poorly fitted curtains can again, cause light to creep into the room. If you are looking at refurbishing your rooms with new curtains, always seek the help of a professional team if in any doubt when measuring the drop and width of your curtains, as well as the type of fabrics you should opt for. The help of a professional team can ensure your project runs smoothly as their experience will help you avoid some mistakes that could be easy-to make otherwise. And this need not cost you a penny; for example at Mitre we operate a free measuring service. 6. Create a calming, relaxing sleep environment The cherry on the cake is the ambience of a guestroom as this can have a significant effect on the quality of your guest’s sleep. Try using colours and prints that evoke a sense of calmness and tranquility to help your guests relax and unwind in beautiful, calming surroundings.

Creating a sophisticated look with Sheer Curtains Interior trends are seeing more people choosing featherweight sheer curtains to dress windows rather than a heavier formal, traditional curtain. While sheers are often used for privacy and security, they can also add style and sophistication to a window or partition, creating a light and breezy atmosphere, often with a natural and modern feel. On very large windows even a simple plain white voile can create a dramatic effect. Picture an open window or doors with sheers blowing in the spring breeze… it can be simply stunning. The choice of designs, fabrics, textures and styles now available is staggering, so let the experts at online sheer curtain store, Net Curtains Direct, guide you through some of the key considerations for buying sheers for a hotel or restaurant. Net Curtains or Voiles?

Hotelier & Hospitality Design

Net curtains are generally knitted, often with a coarse yarn and mainly in white or cream, whereas voiles are woven giving a finer but more robust fabric and because of this will take a lot more embellishment. There is a very wide selection of plain, coloured and patterned voiles available that are inherently fire retardant, while with net curtains it will typically only be plain designs. Colours

28

One of Net Curtains Direct’s most popular fabrics is Aspen, a linen-look voile available in 30 different colours. This 100% polyester matt fabric oozes versatility. Choose white & natural tones for a timeless, relaxing feel

creating a sanctuary of peace and quiet. Bold contrast colours can match existing accents, or add freshness as a statement piece to make a feature of an otherwise solemn window.

luxury and elegance. Recessed spot lights shining up or down can also add an extra dramatic feel.

Net Curtains Direct are the world’s premier sheer curtain online store, based in the UK providing bespoke curtains and hardware Gather worldwide. You can order thousands of different curtains direct from their website, or How much gather or fullness to go for is often one of the most popular questions that speak to their dedicated contract department via the details below. customers ask Net Curtains Direct. The optimum gather on sheers with a standard www.netcurtainsdirect.com heading is 2.5x the window width, so a +44(0)2382 021235 100cm wide window would need 250cm of contract@netcurtainsdirect.com fabric. Opting for less gather can be more economical, although it’s not recommended to go below 2x. Likewise, those wanting maximum privacy should go no further than 3x the window width. One point to remember, is that while more gather will offer more privacy, it can also block more light. Consider the pattern too, with busy and dense patterns needing less gather to create the same effect as a plain curtain. String Curtains Very popular in large spaces, such as restaurant windows or hotel lobbies, string curtains offer a very simple solution to add a stunning and clean look against glass or in an open space as a divide. Hang the strings flat for a subtle look, allowing plenty of visibility inside and out. Doubling the fullness creates a richer dynamic look while some will double-layer strings of complementing colours for added

Tim Henderson, Director of The Light Corporation, said: “We gave the lighting a nautical spin, locating the Bright Goods lamps within basket-style lampshades for example. Bright Goods LED filament lamps are in a class of their own for this kind of setting, offering energy efficient LED technology in a warm, retro style that perfectly suited the ambiance of the pub. The Sail Loft is a large open plan site able to seat 300 people – yet the lighting makes it feel intimate especially in the evening.”

Bright Goods LED filament lamps illuminate Fuller’s pubs Camberley, 10 April 2017 - LED Eco Lights today announced that Bright Goods LED filament lamps are being installed throughout the Fuller’s managed pub estate to reduce energy and maintenance costs. The project has been designed, managed and delivered by the Light Corporation.

Hotelier & Hospitality Design

Bright Goods LED filament lamps from LED Eco Lights were first installed in The Sail Loft, a newly built Fuller’s pub in Greenwich, in a lighting scheme created by the Light Corporation. The Sail Loft is part of the new Greenwich Reach development, with floor-to-ceiling glass windows on three sides and a large terrace facing the Thames with views of Canary Wharf, Cutty Sark and the O2 Arena. Its interior takes inspiration from its location, and features nautical touches and maritime bric-a-brac adorning the walls.

Fuller’s was impressed with both the appearance of the lights and the energy efficiencies achieved, and contracted The Light Corporation to survey a substantial part of its managed estate of just under 200 pubs, and recommend low energy Bright Goods LED replacements for each light on the premises. Bright Goods LED lamps are also being fitted into existing Fuller’s pubs as they are refurbished and to other new pubs as they are built. Pubs completed include The Tea Merchant, Canary Wharf; The Pilot, Chiswick; The Queen’s Head, Hammersmith; The Hydrant, Monument; The Pilgrim Inn, Southampton; The White Hart Hotel, Hampton and The William Walker, Winchester. Commenting, Peter Turner, Property Director at Fuller’s said: “We were very impressed with the appearance of Bright Goods LED lights. They provide illumination that is as warm and welcoming as a filament bulb, maintaining the all-important ambience of the pub in the evening. It is also highly controllable, and can be dimmed as required. It allows us to maintain a traditional feel while reducing our carbon footprint.” Saima Shafi, Sales and Marketing Director of LED Eco Lights added, “Bright Goods LED lamps can in many cases be slotted directly into a fitting to replace the existing filament, fluorescent or halogen lamp, reducing the replacement cost and enhancing the return on investment. In some cases, the energy saving can be as much as 75% - reducing carbon emissions by over 40 tonnes per year.”

Blending business and coffee for over a decade

The Caffè Culture Show

returns with an exciting new conference feature for 2017 The Caffè Culture Show is the UK’s only business to business event dedicated to the café and coffee trade, and takes place on 23rd and 24th May at Olympia, London. The show has established itself as the go-to event for sector buyers and hospitality operators to source products and services they need to keep in line with market trends and ever-evolving consumer demands. The show features some exciting new elements this year including Caffè Connections, a unique conference forum running within the show itself. Caffè Connections explores the state of the café industry and the rapidly changing landscape, with keynote speakers, panel debates, insight sessions and drop-ins from high-profile figures from the coffee and food to go sectors. Speakers span the industry, from established chains to market disruptors.


Shows Events Show Preview Caffe&Culture

Day one (Tuesday 23rd May) is designed for senior executives, buyers and procurement managers from the coffee and foodservice markets, with a focus on Strategy, insight and innovation. Highlights include: • Keynote from Pret A Manger board adviser and Cawston Press co-founder Mark Palmer on what’s driving change within the coffee shop market and lessons to be learnt from the casual dining revolution. • Caffe Nero’s Paul Ettinger, Kaffeine’s Peter Dore Smith and T2’s Darren Williams on what the chains and independents have to learn from each other and whether they can peacefully co-exist.

Panelists include Simon Bracken from Scanomat, Tim Sturk from WSH, Ben Townsend from The Espresso Room and Dale Harris from Has Bean.

Day two’s (Wednesday 24th May) theme is focused around the use of insight to drive performance and the needs of independent coffee shops and cafés. Speakers include: • Former Coffee Republic franchisee, author and consultant Andrew Bowen on franchising opportunities and alternative methods for raising capital for coffee shop expansion. • Matthew Hopkinson from Local Data Company and Michael Fern from Edge on whether there is still room for growth in the coffee shop sector or whether some markets have reached saturation. • Hugh Duffie from Sandows on innovation in vending technologies. • Gary McCann from Beyond the Bean, Pact Coffee and Eva Pascoe from The Retail Practice on how speciality coffee will continue to differentiate itself from the mainstream market. • Jonathan Smith from Poppleston Allen on licensing and opportunities for coffee shops to serve alcoholic beverages.


Shows & Events Event Director Chris Holman said: “The Caffè Culture Show is widely recognised for its excellent on-site talks programmes and has long been at the forefront of the rapidly changing coffee industry. We want to extend the show’s focus on commercial strategy and growth with a brand new conference offering. Caffè Connections is an exciting new opportunity for visitors to engage more deeply with the latest thinking to help inform and grow their business. This year’s show is not to be missed.” In the show’s Technology Showcase, leading suppliers, wholesalers, equipment manufacturers and suppliers of premium products will be previewing new product launches, while the New Business Zone features the very latest newto-market innovations. Featured companies include Chai Guy and Conker Spirit.

We all know that discerning café bar, restaurant and hotel customers are tempted by top quality coffee. A top quality roast adds competitive edge to any coffee operation and the independent coffee roasting scene is growing fast. The Caffè Culture Show is delighted to champion this important industry by hosting the Independent Coffee Roasters Village again this year. Visitors can taste a wide selection of delicious blends on offer while learning all about the roasting process from the most passionate people in the business – artisan, small-batch roasters from across the UK. Independent roasters featured include Exmouth Coffee Company, J. Atkinson & Co, Moonroast Coffee, Regal Coffee and Urban Roast Coffee Company. Also returning to The Caffè Culture Show for 2017 is the Artisan Food Market. Recognising that many operators want to support and source from small, local food and drink producers, this vibrant marketplace is a celebration of craft enterprise laid out in a farmers’ market style. From baked goods to soft drinks, healthy snacks to indulgent treats, a host of award-winning independent and speciality producers will be on hand to share their delicious products and answer questions. Suppliers featured include Ben and Bill’s (Brown Bag Crisps), Chegworth Valley Juices, Fifi’s Paradise, Great British Biscotti Company, Honey Berry, Let Them Eat, Quibbles Fussy About Nibbles, Story Brands, Sweet Carolina, The Free From Bakehouse and Willie’s Cacao. Research by The Caffè Culture Show in 2016 revealed that six in ten (62.5%) consumers prefer to get their out-of-home caffeine fix at an independent coffee shop or café, rather than from a chain operator (25.5%). Half (50.9%) wanted to see the number of independent coffee shops/cafés increase while only 3.2% wanted to see the high street chains expand. The quality of coffee served was the biggest motivating factor for consumers in choosing which coffee shop/café to visit (81.3%) with 82.5% refusing to return if coffee quality is poor. Three quarters (74%) of independent coffee shops/cafés surveyed by the show saw like-for-like turnover increase in 2015 compared to 2014, and nine in ten (92.3%) expected growth to continue in 2016 vs. 2015.

Now wine enthusiasts can expand their palates by exploring, comparing and contrasting regions, varietals, producers, styles and vintages without exposing entire bottles to oxidation. Restaurants and wine bars can use the Coravin System to expand their wine programs by offering better wines by the glass, without the risk of oxidization if a bottle is not sold that night, while wineries and wine stores can offer customers a taste of fine wines before they buy.

The Synergy Grill is a pioneering chargrill that uses 52% less gas. This gas saving equates to an average of £12,238 every five years, helping cultivate a carbon neutral kitchen. It also uniquely has no fat tray to clean. These benefits have been adopted by top chefs and snagged top prize for innovation at The Commercial Kitchen Show where the judges were “Wowed by a British-made design that is a true innovation for chargrilling.”

The greatest benefit, however, is flavour. Synergy Grills get hotter than average chargrills. Heat ‘atomises’ the natural fats that are released during cooking which are misted back into food making it incredibly succulent.

The much-anticipated report showcases the top selected spirits by bartenders in many of the best bars around the world and today named Ketel One as the number one vodka in two categories. For the fifth year in a row Ketel One has been awarded the ‘Best Selling’ vodka title and for the third year the ‘Most Trending’ in the vodka category.

KETEL ONE VODKA SWEEPS THE coveted industry awards showcase the BOARD AT GLOBAL The most popular spirits chosen by bartenders preparing cocktail-classics. Ketel AWARDS when One is celebrated all over the world for its quality and the excellence of the liquid has now been recognised as the perfect base for a Bloody Mary, Moscow Mule and Espresso Martini cocktail.

Bob Nolet, 11th generation distiller of the Nolet Distillery, whose father Carolus Nolet Sr., created Ketel One Vodka, said: “This is such a proud moment for the Nolet family. We pride ourselves on going the extra mile to demonstrate our dedication to creating vodka of remarkable quality – we call this the Ketel One way. We’re obsessive perfectionists when it comes to making

vodka and we’re proud to receive this recognition from the bartenders and Drinks International Bar Report. We also understand that while we can produce the best tasting vodka possible, it is the bartender who is the expert who brings the magic of this liquid to life. That’s why we thank the bartenders worldwide, who’s passion and dedication to the craft of cocktail making helps to share the distinctive crisp and smooth taste of Ketel One Vodka with new audiences across the globe every day.” Hamish Smith, Deputy Editor of Drinks International Magazine said: “Ketel One has taken the top vodka spot in our poll of top bars five years in a row. Highlevel bartenders are not known to be big vodka fans, with one notable exception: Ketel One. It is the vodka to stock in the world’s best bars and that doesn’t look like changing any time soon.” Ketel One Vodka is inspired by over 325 years of traditional distilling expertise, which has been passed from father to son for over 11 generations in the Nolet family – all driven by a relentless pursuit of excellence and quest for perfection. www.ketelone.com
