Thin Gin, by Waterford company Anchor Spirits, has won a Gold Outstanding award in the Gin & Tonic category of the International Wines and Spirits Competition.
The Company which has its headquarters at 33 The Mall in Waterford City took four medals for their three products which were judged in London this week.
Managing Director Nichola Beresford says the Gold award for Thin Gin will give it a great boost on an international stage.
Nichola was also delighted that their other products were recognised at the awards: four medals in all for Muldoon Liqueur and Spike Island Spiced Rum.
Managing Director Nichola Beresford says they do not have the huge marketing budget of the big companies and local support has been invaluable.
