On-trade wholesaler Waver-ley TBS has named Batemans, the Lincolnshire-based independent family brewer and retailer, as its Cask Beer Supplier of the Year.
Batemans was also nominated to receive four additional awards for best company of the year in the following categories: Account Handler; Most Pro-Active Supplier; Most Innovative Promotion and Overall Supplier.
WaverleyTBS warehouse staff, sales and telesales teams at depots across the UK nominate their choice of companies for the awards.
Nominations by depot staff described Batemans as "reliable", "helpful", "great people", "extremely nice to work with", "offering great service" and "[offering] creative solutions to any issues".
Batemans national sales director Andrew Reed said: "We are extremely proud to have won this award amongst such tough competition. We don't have the promotional budgets of many competitors, but as part of a great family business, we offer hard work, ingenuity, loyalty, service and a great sense of fun.
"This award required 100% effort from every level within our business and reflects the commitment of the entire Batemans' team."
