Co-run by SSP Group, the Bottega Prosecco Bar at Birmingham is celebrating after taking home Airport Bar of the Year at the 2018 Drinks International Travel Retail Awards. 

Having opened in May, the venue is run by food and drink travel operator SSP in partnership with Italian drinks brand Bottega.

It offers customers a vast selection of fine wine alongside an all-day food menu, attempting to bring the “atmosphere and ambience of a Venetian Bacaro bar to international travellers.”

Simon Smith, chief executive of SSP UK and Ireland, said: “We’re delighted to have won this award from Drinks International. This success reflects not only our great partnership with Bottega, but also the strength of our brand portfolio. The concept has been incredibly well-received by passengers travelling through Birmingham Airport.”

Owner and managing director at Bottega, Sandro Bottega, added: “We are delighted to have won this award, which reflects the appreciation of British and global consumers for prosecco and its culinary tradition made of simplicity, genuineness and taste.

“We are grateful to SSP for having interpreted our concept of quality and service in the best possible way, and to Birmingham Airport for believing in the project and support its development.”
