The Preston-headquartered retailer beat tough competition from major retailers including Aldi, Lidl and M&S to secure the top spot.
Judges commented that ‘’focusing on what customers like, as well as having a keen eye on current and future trends’’ is what set Booths apart from the rest.
Pete Newton, Beer and Spirits Buyer at Booths said ‘’As a small-scale retailer up against multi-national retail chains, it is an absolute honour to win such a prestigious award.
"We’re absolutely delighted. We look for products that demonstrate quality and provenance but most importantly, we deliver a range we know our customers will like.”
