What some of our partners say ...

Diageo has been proud to sponsor Best Bar None in Scotland. We wholeheartedly support the scheme's aims of enhancing standards and safety in the night-time economy and helping to make our towns and cities safer places to enjoy a great night out.

Best Bar None is an excellent way for licensees to measure themselves against 'best in class' standards and prove to their local police, licensing officials and customers that they take their corporate social responsibilities very seriously indeed.

The SBRC are doing a great job of enlisting more venues in more areas and promoting the benefits of the scheme to Government and the general public. The more that pub goers hear about the scheme; the more likely they are to actively seek out venues which have BBN accreditation.


Edrington-Beam Suntory is delighted to support Best Bar None Scotland. We fully support and share their aims of providing safe and comfortable environments for customers enjoying themselves in bars and clubs. Working together with all the partners, we are confident we can nurture a culture of responsible drinking across Scotland.


Chivas Brothers understand the importance of creating a convivial atmosphere so our customers can truly enjoy our products in a responsible way. For this reason, Chivas Brothers is proud to be associated with Best Bar None and the work it does in promoting excellence in the on-trade. 



The Best Bar None Scotland Board

Our national Board is chaired by Jack Gemmell, Public Affairs Manager at Chivas Brothers Pernod-Ricard. The Board is very ambitious and keen to see Best Bar None promote the best of the licensed trade in Scotland, pushing standards and rewarding excellence.
