If Boutique Bar Show (BBS) were a leather jacket, it would be looking pretty cool by now because, as everyone knows, it takes at least ten years to break one in. It’s quite an achievement for a small business to prosper for a decade, so congratulations are due to Andrew Scutts and everyone who was worked on Boutique Bar Show since its launch back in the days BarLifeUK staff could fit in 32” jeans.
BBS comes to London for the tenth time on September 26th, and brings with it the combination of tasting and learning opportunities previous attendees have come to expect:
