Awards galore with the Global Distillery Masters 2017
Here we are once again welcoming in the New Year, and what a great year it’s been! And to kick off 2017 in true style we are proud as punch to announce that we’ve won two awards with the Spirits Business Global Distillery Masters 2017, for our ‘Consumer Experience’ on the Distillery Tour and our ‘Digital & Social Media’.
2016 gave us heaps to share with our friends of the brand with the launch of our Botanical Garden and subsequent Limited Edition Melissa Lemon Balm gin, as well as welcoming our brand new 50 litre copper-pot still, Satisfaction. We really can’t begin to express how much we value our incredibly loyal and lovely fan base, so we are beyond chuffed to know that our efforts to immerse you into our wonderful world of gin have paid off and we have reached the pinnacle in not one, but two categories in the Global Distillery Masters 2017!
For those that don’t know, the Global Spirits Masters series celebrates the very best liquid the industry has to offer by bestowing awards on some the world’s finest distilleries. Our Curiosity Tour came out on top despite being up against some giant distilleries ‘The Curiosity Tour gives a nice sense of place and conveys the individuality of Warner Edwards Distillery. It’s a nice touch that the founders themselves give the tours and talk about the history of gin.”
We also had some epic feedback when it came to our digital presence, gaining us a second win in the Digital & Social Media category. The judging panel said “Their engagement was really strong across all platforms. Their performance is almost to the extent where if someone asked how to engage with people on social media I would say ‘just like this’; I’m close to saying this is text book.”
With this feedback behind us, the awards have only made us more excited to get cracking on a wealth of exciting future plans. So watch this space Warner Edwards fans… We have some top-secret developments in the pipeline and can’t wait to share them all with you awesome lot! W.E. are excited to be starting 2017 on a high!
