for Thin Gin plus three other Medals for Anchor Spirits Ireland

Thin Gin, by Anchor Spirits Ireland, has won a ‘Gold Outstanding’ award in the Gin & Tonic category of the International Wines and Spirits Competition announced in London today. Thin Gin was also bestowed a Silver Outstanding Medal in its gin category.

This brings to four the number of prestigious awards held by Thin Gin. In 2015 Thin Gin won Best Irish Gin at the Irish Whiskey Awards followed by a Gold Medal in 2016. It now adds two international accolades to the list.

At the 2017 IWSC Awards Anchor Spirits took four Medals in total for the three products they currently have on the market. This is a huge achievement for the boutique beverage company headquartered at 33 The Mall in Waterford city. The products will be showcased at a gala dinner in the Guild Hall in London in November of this year.

Nichola Beresford, Managing Director of Anchor Spirits said, “We’re really pleased. Thin Gin now has four very well recognised awards, including ‘Best Irish Gin’ and so for all the bars, restaurants, hotels and Off Licences that have been hugely supportive of our endeavours, now they are promoting not just Irish products because they are Irish, but Irish products with an international stamp of excellence. Thin Gin, Muldoon Irish Whiskey Liqueur and Spike Island Spiced Rum have all been recognised individually. It’s a tremendous boost.”

Anchor Spirits Ireland Limited brought Muldoon Irish Whiskey Liqueur to market in 2014. Since then the company has grown to include two more award winning products and has taken up residence and restored one of Ireland’s most historic buildings; 33 The Mall in Waterford City, while plans for a new boutique distillery at another site are well underway.

The four IWSC awards won in London were a Silver medal for Spike Island Rum, a Silver Outstanding for Thin Gin, a bronze medal for Muldoon Irish Whiskey Liqueur and a Gold Outstanding award for Thin Gin in the Gin & Tonic category.

    No Gun ControlAs much as you might sympathize with the students and families of those who were at the center of one of the worst high school shootings in Florida last week, you easily get the impression that their deaths were all for naught. There is absolutely no way, following the 17 deaths at this shooting, that the law makers in America will bring in legislation that will see the curbing of gun use and gun ownership in that country. It is just not the American way.In actual fact if past histor …
