11/06/2012 Master of Malt Scoops Design Prize for Gin

Master of Malt Bathtub Gin The company’s Bathtub Gin, released as part of the Professor Cornelius Ampleforth range of artisan spirits, collected the ‘Best Design and Packaging - Spirit’ award at The Drinks Business Awards 2012.

Wrapped in brown paper and sealed with twine and black wax, the unique presentation of Bathtub Gin harks back to days past, reflecting the gin’s historic cold compounding production method.

Featuring a hand-drawn picture of a carboy and a variety of botanicals, the label hints at the carefully-chosen ingredients which go into producing the unique flavour of Bathtub Gin.

Juniper, orange peel, coriander, cinnamon, cloves and cardamom all infuse in the high quality English grain spirit, creating a gin which has struck a chord with both consumers and professionals alike.

Bathtub Gin is made in ultra-small batches of only 30 to 60 bottles at a time, and the length of the compounding period is controlled entirely by periodic sampling.

Earlier this year, Master of Malt’s unique Drinks by the Dram range won ‘Best Innovation – New Product Range’ at the World Whiskies Design Awards. The win was announced at an invitation-only ceremony on Wednesday, May 23 at the London International Wine Fair.
