Our first birthday and awards success
We have picked up three industry accolades, including two top awards at the World Rum Awards, in the same month we celebrated our first anniversary.
Our Harvest Gin – an autumnal spirit made with apples and plums gathered from our orchard – has been announced as a finalist in The Gin Guide Awards, which highlight the exceptional products, distilleries and people within the global gin industry.
We’re amazed at the reception our rum and gin have received since we started selling our products a year ago. We’ve had such great feedback from consumers and our industry peers.
What began as a hobby has grown into a multi-award winning distillery, and we’re looking forward to seeing what the next 12 months have in store.
The World Rum Awards are part of The World Drinks Awards – selecting the very best in all internationally-recognised styles of drinks, which are blind-tasted by a panel of experts.
Speaking about our Gold Rum, judges at the World Rum Awards commented: “The nose starts off with tropical pineapple, mango and slightly overripe tropical fruit. There are light floral notes and a lovely citrus lemon and lime aroma note. The rum is very pleasant on the palate with a warm and round mouthfeel.”
Of the Spiced Rum, judges said: “Nose of heavy citrus zest and oils, cloves, ginger, and subtle spice. Complex start on the palate, with an orange chocolate finish dominant. Warming, spicy, interesting, and balanced.”
