ARISTOCRATIC entrepreneurs are toasting international success for their liqueur, handcrafted in Warwickshire.
St Maur elderflower liqueur has been awarded Best in Category, International Liqueurs at The American Distilling Institute International Spirits Competition, held in the US.
The award is the latest in a series of prestigious industry accolades for the drink produced in Alcester by William and Kelsey Seymour, Earl and Countess of Yarmouth.
Founded in 2003, The American Distilling Institute (ADI) is the oldest and largest trade association dedicated to craft distilling in the world. It has become a beacon for the craft distilling community – providing their global network of small-batch, independently-owned distillers with a go-to source of information on their craft.
William said: “It’s great to see our little drop from over here has done rather well over there.
“We love introducing our little drop of England’s heart to new consumers to share and enjoy wherever they are in the world. These latest international awards are just one way of doing that, and flying the flag for our beautiful corner of England.”
The judges were made up of a panel of experts in the spirits industry including journalists, distillers, mixologists, consultants, educators, bartenders, importers and brand ambassadors.
St Maur originated in a drink produced for guests on the couple’s wedding day, at William’s family home Ragley Hall.
