We were delighted and honoured to have recently been awarded medals from The IWSC – The International Wine and Spirits Competition for our Boadicea® Gin – Classic edition and our Nelson’s Gold® caramelised English vodka, plus we received a starred medal for Nelson’s Gold from The Guild of Fine Food in their Great Taste Awards.

Next year we will enter more of our spirits as the competitions are a real benchmark of quality but as they are quite expensive to enter, we only entered two of our spirits into the IWSC and one in Great Taste, so it was incredible to achieve medals, particularly as only 37% of entries in Great Taste achieved an award.

Here’s to 2020! And (hopefully) more awards.
