Maverick Drinks has been named Spirits Distributor of the Year 2017 by the International Wine & Spirit Competition (IWSC) judges, announced at the recent Annual Awards Banquet hosted at Guildhall, London. This is the second year in a row that Maverick Drinks has claimed this title, and the third time in the four years since the distributor was established in 2013.
Maverick Drinks won its first Spirits Distributor of the Year trophy at the International Wine & Spirit Competition in 2014 as a newcomer to the industry – founded only one year before in 2013. In 2016, Maverick Drinks was again rewarded for its unwavering support and education of craft spirits with its second Spirits Distributor of the Year title.
It’s an incredible honour to be recognised by the prestigious International Wine & Spirit Competition. Awards like this push us to continue innovating and driving change in the drinks industry and it once again affirms that craft spirits with provenance and authenticity are increasingly what people are looking for. We’re very fortunate to work with some of the best brands and people in the business.
