About this deal

Today, it has established itself as the latest big spirit category to be discovered that shows no signs of slowing down. People may know mezcal as Tequila’s smoky cousin, but “smoky” only scratches the surface of this amazingly artisanal spirit. As with every competition, the judges had the tough decision of retasting all the Master medallists to choose the product worthy of the Taste Master title. Additionally, the company’s core tipple Tongham TEA pump clips will invite customers to “Support your local, go TEA total” by enjoying a pint of their favourite ale, repeating the successful January campaign from previous years.

Eleven Silvers were given out in the round. However, the judges noted that the juniper spirit was not often detected when tasting the RTDs. Perez Terrado said: “The common thread is ‘where is the gin?’. Tonic and flavourings dominated, and I would’ve loved to see the gin celebrated and more to the front – slightly disappointed as a result.” This means drinkers will trust the beers to deliver great taste while also being produced in keeping with our ethos of brewing sustainably and using local ingredients. An expert team of judges gathered at the Ibis Styles in London’s Southwark to bestow medals on products made with a base of vodka, gin, rum, Tequila, and whisky. According to the company, the Monte Carlo brand will “bring new customers into hospitality who desire delicious tasting rosés and aspire to the lifestyle, ambience and taste of the Cote D’Azur." Similar to wine, each bottle reflects the unique terroir of the region where it was distilled, with each producer using their own artisan methods.”Monte Carlo Blush (ABV 13.5%) is a light, crip, balanced and refreshing wine suitable for all dining occasions while Monte Carlo Prestige (13.5% ABV) is a more indulgent rosé perfect for special moments, grown on the slopes of the Cadiere d’Azur.

We work with several delivery providers who offer Next-working day, 1-3 working day and Weekend Delivery services. Please note, Bank Holidays will affect deliveries and may delay until the next working day. Where do you deliver to? Panel three comprised: Sarah Miller, founder of the Gin A Ding Ding blog; Stephen Kennard of SMJK Consulting; and Anthony Callegari, head of bars at the London Edition.We’re helping them appeal both to customers wanting to beat the January blues with a flavourful pint of Tongham TEA, and to the increasing number of consumers with a thirst for beers with full taste but lower strength, which peaks this month.” That is why we have partnered with Mezcal Union who support local producers and farmers with investments in the development of their land, with the intention of increasing their production volume sustainably, always taking care of a 100% artisan process.”

Mezcal Unión Uno is created using a unique blend of Espadin and Cirial stone-crushed agave, which are aged between seven and 14 years. Eichler said of the round: “A couple of incredible and well thought-out products – sometimes simplicity is best where you taste the base spirit.” We are ensuring our Whiskey family across the pond is able to get Uncle Nearest in their favourite stores, bars and restaurants, as well. I look forward to visiting more often and sharing a dram with our friends and family on that side of the world.” The Vegan flight saw Creamy Creation (B2B) secure a Master for its Coconut Winter Melon Concept, which particularly impressed Craft, who said: “Creamy coconut milk with a gorgeous light toasted nuttiness, just sweet enough. But the hero is the subtle fruitiness of the melon which is different in the very best way.” Creamy Creation (B2B) also took home a Gold for its Oats Spicy Coffee Concept, said to be “very indulgent” with “honeyed cereal aromas”. Two Master medals followed in the Whisky-Based flight. Starward’s (New) Old Fashioned took the top award, described as an “excellent Old Fashioned – delicious and sweet” with “great body and length”.Matt Chambers, co-founder of the Whisky for Everyone blog and the North London Whisky Club, chaired the fourth panel. His team included: Sara Jane Eichler, founder of the Negroni Club UK; and Herchelle Perez Terrado, director of Drinks Partnership. An expert team of judges gathered at the Ibis Styles in London’s Southwark for the tasting

Elderflower, Mint and Gin have long been a celebrated combination. The sweetness and floral aspect of the Elderflower Cordial are beautifully highlighted by the dry and piney juniper 58 & Co Gin alongside the zesty and refreshing pressed lime and green tea. Starward’s (New) Old Fashioned was the clear standout, made with the Australian distillery’s single malt whisky, orange bitters, and wattleseed syrup. Master winner Planter’s Punch had “amazing texture from real fruit, some subtle spice and dark rum, with a lovely delivery on nose and palate”, Perez Terrado noted. Fellow Master medallist Curatif Never Never Distilling Negroni was described by one judge as a “bar-quality Negroni” with hints of “spices, orange and a herbaceous nose”.The round ended with six Silver medals. Chambers said: “An absolutely superb round, with the higher-ABV RTDs showing other producers the way to go. The rum added structure as well as great flavour.” A Piña Colada, Punch and Mai Tai each secured Master medals in the rum-based category Uncle Nearest co-founder and CEO Fawn Weaver said: “We tiptoed into the UK several years ago, but our astronomical sales in the U.S. have made it quite difficult to send enough of our award-winning Bourbon to the UK to make any real impact. We are changing that in 2023. Rum-based RTDs were put to the test next, where three Masters were awarded. The first went to Curatif Piña Colada, which impressed Chambers, who said: “Fresh pineapple with a good glug of rum, a hint of coconut on the nose, and a pinch of spice. Lovely mouthfeel with tangy pineapple and the coconut rum gives good power and structure. Delicious and creamy.” Durling added: “Although mezcal is booming, there is a concern it will fall victim to industrial processes to keep up with demand, which would go against the core ethos of the craftsmanship of mezcal. Twelve Gold medals came to light in the tasting, including four for Tequila Cazadores. The brand’s Paloma had a “nice sourness and slight bitter notes from the grapefruit”, according to Kiely. Tequila Cazadores Spicy Margarita was described as a “nice, savoury, spicy twist on the classic Margarita”.
