Derbyshire Distillery Named As Runner Up at International Gin Awards
Derbyshire Distillery’s Chesterfield Dry Gin, has been named as runner up at the international Gin Guide Awards 2019, in two categories: London Dry Gin and Traditional Gin.
The judging panel for The Gin Guide Awards included experts with significant on- and off-trade experience, including gin producers, marketers, event managers, leisure operators and mixologists.
Commenting on the company’s success at the prestigious awards Derbyshire Distillery’s head distiller, David Hemstock, said: “For a start-up distillery that has only been producing a modest range of gins for under 12 months, we are delighted that our Chesterfield Dry Gin was runner up in two categories.
“To have one of our gins chosen from of a hundreds of gins submitted from around the world is an impressive achievement and one that we are justifiably proud.”
Derbyshire Distillery is currently based in Staveley, but will be moving operations to new purpose-designed facilities at Markham Vale, adjacent to junction 29A on the M1, where production will continue during May 2019. At the new distillery all administration, sales and distilling operations will all be under one roof.
