Keep Warm This Winter

Bristol is heating up, and so is DrinksWorks. As we sink firmly into the sunny season, we thought we’d take the opportunity to get you up to date on just a few of the exciting things happening in Drinksworks HQ…

It’s hard not to get a bit of the bye-bye summer blues around this time of year. In our home town of Bristol and across the south west, the rain is picking up, the skies are getting greyer, and that golden glow of summer evenings has well and truly passed. But there’s no need to get totally down in the dumps: there’s lots to love about the south west in winter. We’ve collected a few of our favourites…

Long Nights in Cosy Pubs

So you can’t spend all evening in the beer garden anymore — but there are plenty of other nice drinking holes to be found in winter. We recommend finding your favourite pub, preferably one with an open fire (or at least a convincing picture of one), some hot whiskey to warm your bones, and good company. If you need somewhere to start, we’d recomment The Famous Pint Pot in Gloucester, Amoeba Lounge Bar in Bristol, or the Grazing Shed in Cardiff.

Drink Safe, Drink Cosy

While we all need to be sensible about our drinking, there’s no doubt that a well placed pint can go a long way to warming you up on a cold night. And there’s no need to be boring: we’d recommend using the long winter evenings to experiment with a range of cocktails (use The Works range for superlative mixers). Or add a splash of Fiery Ginger Beer to really spice your evening up.


There’s nothing warmer! When you’re in desperate straits, round up a few mates and take your pick of the above: either head to a pub for an easy night out, or bring ‘em round and serve them your latest specials. You’ll be feeling cosy in no time.

Super Tidy Soda

We’re delighted to be working with The Grazing Shed to help circulate their very own innovative Super Tidy Soda. With all the expertise of their popular restaurants (voted #1 burger joint in Wales, so you know they know how to do it), The Grazing Shed developed a stunning new range of flavours including Cherry Bakewell, Root Beer, Fiery Ginger Beer, and Cloudy Lemonade, all perfect for everyone from busy nightclubs to family pubs. Get in touch today and we can help you stock them!

Student Secco Spectacular

Our delicious Sparkling Secco on tap made a huge splash earlier this month at the Swansea Summer Ball. With over 5000 students in attendance ready to relax and blow off some steam after a busy exam period, the event was a sell-out smash. Secco Sparkling Italian is a great fit for big events, with its easy dispense method and big capacities: get in touch now to find out how to use it for your next party! 

Welcome Aboard 

And finally, a big welcome to some of our new stockists: we’re delighted to have you all. Each and every customer is important to us, but so that we don’t keep you here all day, here’s a brief shout out to just a few. To Cardiff’s Glam, Bunker, The Soda Lounge, Soda Bar, The Attic, and Bristol’s own Mbargos, welcome to the DrinksWorks family!

And speaking of the DrinksWorks family, a big congratulations to our own Finance and Operations Executive Jade and her family, who recently welcomed a new addition to the family. Welcome to the world, baby Zuri-Jade!
