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.
