Lo­cal bot­tleshop wins state award

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS - Moya Stevens

THE Bot­tle-O Moss­man has been an­nounced as the Best De­tached Bot­tleshop in Queens­land for the third year in a row, and man­ager Paul McMa­hon couldn’t be hap­pier.

Ac­cord­ing to Paul, mys­tery shop­pers judged the en­trants for the shop de­sign, range, pre­sen­ta­tion and staff ser­vice, and the Moss­man out­let came out above all other con­tenders.

“Just be­cause we are in Moss­man, doesn’t mean we can’t drink well,” Paul said, “and tourist and lo­cals like to buy lo­cally.”

“Peo­ple are drink­ing less but bet­ter wine, and we stock over an ex­ten­sive range of wine, beer and spir­its to cater for ev­ery­one.”

There will be no chance of win­ning four years in a row how­ever, as af­ter three years of suc­cess, the Bot­tle-O Moss­man has now en­tered the Queens­land Ho­tels As­so­ci­a­tion’s Hall of Fame and will not be el­i­gi­ble to en­ter the com­pe­ti­tion again.
