Bacardi USA Named “Best Large Spirits Supplier” at VIBE Conference

May 5, 2015

Coral Gables, Fla., May 5, 2015 – Bacardi U.S.A., Inc. was recently named “Best Large Spirits Supplier of the Year” at the annual 2015 VIBE Conference, the premier on-premise beverage alcohol conference in the country which brings together all the top on premise operators, suppliers and associated vendors.

Every year, VIBE commissions a survey, run by foodservice research and consulting firm Technomic, Inc., to conduct the voting and to determine the industry’s best supplier team. The program is unique in that it invites beverage operators to rate spirits suppliers across a number of criteria including which company they view as the most professional and best at meeting their needs.

“A big thank you to everyone on the team, our customers and distributors for this award,” said Toby Whitmoyer, Vice President, Managing Director, National On Premise, Bacardi North America. “We are proud to be named the ‘hardest working team in the business’ and are committed to an even greater level of customer service in the future.”

The VIBE Supplier Awards program has grown in prestige and importance since its inception six years ago. A VIBE Award is a strong recognition of a company’s service levels, as it comes straight from their customers. The annual event is produced by the Nightclub & Bar Media Group and was most recently held on March 31, 2015 in Las Vegas.
