Trophies Awarded to Bathtub Gin and Master of Malt at the 2013 International Spirits Challenge
ISC 2013 Awards
17 July 2013

Professor Cornelius Ampleforth’s award-winning Bathtub Gin and online retailer Master of Malt were each awarded trophies at the prestigious International Spirits Challenge 2013.

Drinks International held their annual International Spirits Challenge Awards dinner at the Honourable Artillery Company in London on 16th July 2013 where trophies were awarded across Spirits Retail, Marketing and Design & Packaging as well as their extensive blind Tasting categories.
Professor Cornelius Ampleforth’s Bathtub Gin, which is owned by Master of Malt, was awarded a Trophy in the Tasting Awards. To achieve this, a spirit must score over 90 out of 100 in the rigorous blind tasting process, proving itself to be an “outstanding product” of “exceptional quality”. The trophy was announced after Bathtub Gin had already received two Gold Medals in the categories of Premium and Super Premium gin.


UK Spirits Retailer of The Year - Master of Malt

“Master of Malt has proved revolutionary (and evolutionary) when it comes to selling spirits... The retailer has also produced some truly unique spirits... There's no question: in the theatre of drinks, this company is hotter than the sun.

“Complex nose, surely balanced. Massive hit of juniper/spice. Long aftertaste. Delicious.”
