And the winner is…

Silent Pool Distillers, Albury

Judge Philippa Ratcliffe says:

“Silent Pool Distillers has wowed the industry and burst onto the market with their outstanding micro-distillery using the waters from the Silent Pool to make their boutique Gin. Ian and the team at Silent Pool haven’t sat on their laurels despite worldwide plaudits. Instead they have been constantly looking at where they can take their brand, their uniqueness and increase their product offerings. Innovation appears to be running through their veins.”

Highly commended:

Surrey Spice, Guildford

Briscoe’s Jellies, Merstham
