'Outstanding Gold' Medal Award for Thin Gin plus others at IWSC Medal Haul for Anchor Spirits Ireland

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


This brings to four the number of prestigious awards garnered by Thin Gin.  In 2015 it won Best Irish Gin at the Irish Whiskey Awards.  In 2016 it won the Gold Medal at the Irish Whiskey Awards and now it 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 and Off Licences that have been hugely supportive of our endeavours, now they are not just doing it because we’re an Irish company, but because the products have been recognised internationally for excellence. This is good for everyone.  Thin Gin, Muldoon Irish Whiskey Liqueur and our new 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 they have grown the company to include two more award winning products and have 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.
