Drinks Well With Others
G of G Inc took over the Toronto Wine & Spirits festival this past weekend, as any which way you may have looked, you were sure to run into one of our spectacular reps!
Sugar Beach hosted the festival which is in its 9th year. This event is awesome because not only do you have an awesome view of the water, but many of the booths are actually set up on the sand! A nice added touch after months of indoor tradeshows. It also features live musical performances, and a portion of all ticket sales goes to The Music Therapy Trust Fund. The festival features wine, spirits, beer, cocktails, ciders and coolers as well as various food options, including our favourite, an oyster bar.
Our team hosted a variety of footprints including that of Girls Night Out Wines, Thornbury and Celebrity Cruise! Let’s start off with the pinkest of them all, Girls Night Out. Adorned with all things girly, this booth served samples of a wide array of delicious, flavoured beverages, as well as wine slushies! Let’s not forget the bubbles, lip gloss samples, and photo booth which all guests really loved!
From there, guests could head on down to the Thornbury booth. Here you could find some delicious options including their very popular original cider, a cider infused with cranberry flavours as well as our personal favourite, their spiced cider. You can even warm this up in the winter and it tastes incredible. If you wanted to be reminded of what it felt like to be Canadian, this was the booth for you. Not only is the product brewed north of Collingwood, the set up had a very “cottage” like vibe making for a cozy spot to sip a cider.
Standing out from the rest of the booths, was the Celebrity Cruises footprint, representing their new ship – The Edge! Our brand ambassadors were roaming the festival, intriguing guests to come check out the booth, as well as providing key messaging to those who approached us. The booth consisted of a mobile theatre, a VIP lounge, contests, truffle popcorn, sparkling wine and an overall amazing experience! We can’t wait to find out who won the trip on the inaugural sailing of the Celebrity Edge – good luck to all who entered.
