The Adnams team in the distilleryLove your spirits? Here's a reason to celebrate! We're delighted to announce our Copper House Dry Gin has picked up a gold medal at this year’s International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC). The award coincides with the news that Adnams Copper House Dry Gin has also entered into the top 25 bestselling take home gins* in the UK. Founded in 1969, the IWSC’s aim is to promote the quality and excellence of the world's best wines, spirits and liqueurs. The judging panel remarked that Adnams Copper House Dry Gin was: “Generously flavoured and confident, with sublime balance and approachability. An engaging interplay of juniper and citrus is set beautifully against quinine, and lifts off on a lingering finish. Made for tonic water – this is a superb match!” The awards:
