FOLLOWING their success at the Global Gin Masters earlier this summer, Eccentric Spirit Co, produced at award-winning Tanygroes distillery In The Welsh Wind, have added to their growing awards cabinet with their Cardi Bay Vodka receiving a Master medal at the prestigious Global Vodka Masters 2022.

Newly released and gorse-inspired Cardi Bay Vodka was awarded a Master medal in the Flavoured/Infused Vodka category of the competition.

The panel of leading spirits specialists awarded Cardi Bay Vodka with a Master medal due to the spirit’s ‘delicate nose with notes of vanilla and coconut’, with Bernadette Pamplin - chair of panel three - noting that Cardi Bay Vodka is: “An easy tipple for a bartender to make tasty drinks with.”

Master award-winning Cardi Bay Vodka celebrates Cardigan Bay and is inspired by the yellow gorse which grows along the Ceredigion coastline, with gorse’s vanilla and coconut aromas specifically influencing the vodka’s flavour profile, aromas of which were recognised by the panel of leading spirits specialists.

Ellen Wakelam, co-founder and director of In The Welsh Wind Distillery said: “Being awarded a prestigious Master Medal at the Vodka Masters means so much to us.

“It's a testament to all the hard work we put in perfecting Cardi Bay Vodka’s flavour profile and it's really exciting that our first vodka has been highlighted as a Master award winner by leading spirits specialists.”
