It’s all go here at Enomatic! We have completed some great new installs – in all corners of the UK. Some customers are embarking on new projects, others are branching out with self-service machines to add an interactive element to their business; independent wine merchants are adding diversity to their shops, and others are selecting the back bar option for service by their staff to control their wastage. It’s great to see that across the spectrum everyone is seeing the benefit - increased sales, and the ability to provide fine wines by the glass for their clientele by virtue of preservation.
It was fantastic to read the results of the Harpers Awards Top Merchant of the year. Congratulations to Le Vignoble for winning the ‘up to three stores’ category, with a highly commended going to Bottle Apostle and Loki Wines. If that wasn’t enough, further congratulations are in order for Corks Out for the ‘over three stores’ category, and again highly commended awards going to Cambridge Wine Merchants, and Vino Wines – an Enomatic full house, we couldn’t be more thrilled!
We’re also excited about a project we’re involved in with Fever-Tree for a pop-up bar using Enomatics to promote gin, which incidentally is currently outselling all spirits in the UK by around 8.5%. This isn’t a first for us – our dispensers are installed with several clients for use with spirits and none more ground-breaking than British drinks guru, Ryan Chetiyawardana at The White Lyan.
Our new Elite 8 (2.5) dispensers are already in the marketplace and performing flawlessly. Independent bottle isolation and pressure monitoring ensures unrivalled preservation, and an aesthetically stunning glass touch-panel replaces individual push buttons offering outstanding reliability and the option to easily configure single or multiple measures. What’s more, its powerful and ultra-quiet cooling system offers ultimate efficiency and performance. With temperatures lower than 6 degrees, there’s certainly no excuse for warm wines (or spirits)!
The Flute continues to ‘sparkle’ as our latest product to be released; the world’s first dispenser of sparkling wines will be arriving here in the UK in the next few weeks. Watch this space for launch promotions that will allow you to offer a complete by-the-glass selection for both still and sparkling wine that again only Enomatic can provide.
