“After 1st April 2017 anyone who buys alcohol to sell to the consumer, ie retailer, hotel, pub, restaurant, café or club (regardless of size), will be committing an offense if they purchase alcohol from any UK wholesaler or business which does not hold an AWRS number.” - http://www.morningadvertiser.co.uk/Drinks/Spirits-Cocktails/HMRC-AWRS-to-come-into-force-on-1-April


Don’t be caught out, HMRC are warning licensed premises that fines of up to £10,000 will be handed out to those sourcing stock from unapproved wholesalers who do not appear on their alcohol traders’ central register. From the 1st of April 17, action will be taken against those trading illegally.

Fortunately, we are proud to announce that we have been approved and now hold an AWRS number meaning that we are registered and certified to supply alcohol legally to licensees.
