Bottle Market 2019


Do you like the sweetness of a sherry cask finish or would you prefer some islay smoke? Do you like a good scotch or are you more of a rum enthusiast? Are you a traditionalist or rather an adventurous connoisseur?

Whatever you prefer – join us for a journey of great tastes!

For three days in November, an international diversity of whisk(e)y, rum and other spirits is presented at BOTTLE MARKET. A good 85 distillers, importers, independent bottlers and retailers are waiting for your visit. In a cosily atmosphere they are looking forward to vivid conversations with you and of course your thirst (for knowledge).




Red or rather white – what do you prefer? This year you will again find a big selection of German and international wines at our WINE.GOOD & TASTY area.

Taste wines of the “new generation” or of traditional winemakers at our 40 exhibitors and enjoy them alongside a delicious Tarte Flambee.

Are you in search of a handmade praline that goes well with  your favourite wine or are you looking for some delicious cheese specialties? Would you like to find a balsamico for the Christmas dinner with your loved ones or do you want to get inspired to new menus by mustards and sauces?

Our exhibitors have the good stuff ready for you!


Right for its sixth birthday, our yearly spirit event gets a GIN isle for our ginthusiastic visitors. The ‘island’ offers you a meeting point to indulge in your juniper desires – no matter if it is London Dry, New Western Style, Sloe or Barrel Aged.

20 producers and importers present their fine spirit, which you can try for small money. And maybe you will find your new darling for the coming Christmas season!

We are looking forward to three tastemade BOTTLE MARKET days with you!

Welcome to the BOTTLE MARKET!

At events where alcohol is served we as organisers have to pay attention to a lot of things.

For a relaxed and enjoyable visit at the BOTTLE MARKET, we listed some points, which are important for you to notice.

  1. The target group is adult customers, consequential the law for protection of children and youth for serving and selling drinks and consuming cigars at our lounge (admittance 18+) will be observed.
  2. Our gastronomic offer provides a good foundation for your tastings. Please make sure to drink enough water inbetween the whisk(e)y tastings for a long enjoyable stay at the BOTTLE MARKET.
  3. Our exhibitors are instructed to stop serving alcohol to obviously drunk people.
  4. In case of a strongly intoxicated person we will make use of our householder’s rights. This person will be expelled from the halls, in order to secure a further peaceful event. In case of an expulsion, you do not have the right to enter the halls again or claim back the entrance fee.
  5. Please note that the bottles and products you bought at the exhibition stands are not destined for on site consumption and therefore this is prohibited.
  6. And remember „After Whisk(e)y driving risky!“. The Bremen Exhibition Centre is located right in the heart of the city and in direct neighbourhood to the main station with it’s public transport system. So the car may stay in the garage.

We appreciate your understanding and wish you a pleasant day with nice contacts, great spirits and a lot of joy.

Information for exhibitors


True connoisseurs, interested newcomers and real enthusiasts – these words describe our BOTTLE MARKET visitors the best!

Our yearly spirit event offers you a whole of 145 producers, importers, independent bottlers and retailers. With 85 stands the majority of exhibitors offer exclusive whisk(e)ys from over 20 countries and of course a delightful range of rum.

Regardless of whether you present well-known brands, special bottlings, novelties or rarities – our well-funded visitors are waiting for you!



After a steady growth in previous years, the variety of gin at BOTTLE MARKET 2018 reached a level that we had to meet with a separate marketing.

As a consequence of this growing visitor interest in juniper spirits, we will implement a new gin-paradise. It offers ginthusiasts a direct meeting point. We are expanding the marketing accordingly to bring even more gin lovers to your BOTTLE MARKET stand.

The gin area will accommodate about 20 producers and importers.



This area will take up 40 exhibitors, that present selected national and international wines and fine gourmet products.

Producers, importers or retailers meet the exclusive BOTTLE MARKET concept, if their wines and exquisite gourmet products bring moments of the perfect taste for our visitors.
