Salcombe Distilling Co. has been awarded ‘Best in class’ and ‘Master’ for its limited-edition gin ‘Mischief’ at The Design & Packaging Masters which forms part of the internationally renowned Global Spirits Master Awards Series hosted by The Spirits Business.

‘Mischief’ from Salcombe Gin’ s limited edition Voyager Series was developed in collaboration with celebrated chef, restauranteur and food writer Mark Hix MBE. The distinct design and unique packaging of ‘Mischief’ was voted for by the judging panel to be the Best Product in the entire Design Masters competition.

Angus Lugsdin, co-founder commented “We are thrilled to have won these accolades for ‘Mischief’. The unique white ceramic bottle features an embossed outline of the iconic gin pennant and has a bespoke debossed copper stopper. Its presentation box also carries a distinct pennant feature with beautiful copper detailing and Mark Hix kindly granted us permission to use the HIX logo with the X accentuated in copper to represent the 10 botanicals used in the creation of this gin, which also commemorates the 10th anniversary of HIX Restaurants”.

Salcombe Distilling Co. is also celebrating two recent business awards, having been awarded Winner of the ‘Best Business Start Up’ category and Highly Commended in the ‘Best Small Business’ category at the Western Morning News Business Awards.
