Maverick Drinks is absolutely thrilled to announce that it has been awarded the Trophy for Spirits Distributor of the Year 2014 by the prestigious International Wine & Spirit Competition.
Established in 2013, Maverick Drinks had a simple goal: To scour the globe for the very best craft and artisan products and make them available for all in the UK to enjoy.
Starting from nothing, it’s extraordinary success in creating a new market for craft spirits and unique gift ideas has now been recognised by the prestigious International Wine & Spirit Competition, who awarded Maverick Drinks the 2014 Trophy for Spirits Distributor of the Year ahead of some impressive and very well-established competition.
For a new distributor that represents a number of smaller brands and truly innovative products to win one of the highest accolades in the drinks industry is nothing short of incredible. Michael Vachon, Head of Brand Development at Maverick Drinks said: “More and more consumers are choosing products with provenance, authenticity and craftsmanship they admire, and Maverick Drinks continues to pioneer bringing these types of products to market whilst championing the craft distilling movement.”
Maverick Drinks represents some astonishing brands, from the award-winning Bathtub Gin by Professor Cornelius Ampleforth, to several trailblazing spirits brands from the USA (Balcones Distilling, FEW Spirits, New York Distilling Company, Smooth Ambler Spirits, and St. George Spirits) as well as three inspirational European brands (Filliers, Spirit of Hven, and Vestal Vodka).
Each brings something genuinely unique and refreshing to a UK market dominated by mainstream brands. Maverick Drinks also distributes Drinks by the Dram’s unique selection of spirits-filled Christmas Crackers and Advent Calendars.
