Masons Gin Wins Gold at Peoples Drink Awards

The team at Bedale based Masons Dry Yorkshire Gin are celebrating after scooping another prestigious award.

The family run firm were awarded the Gold Peoples Drinks Award for Taste at The Peoples Drinks Awards 2017. The competition, which only awarded 7 prizes; 3 for taste, 3 for branding and the overall Peoples Choice, is judged solely by the general public, makes the accolade all the more exciting for the North Yorkshire distillery.

Started by husband and wife team, Karl and Cathy Mason, Masons Dry Yorkshire Gin products have been awarded an array of local, national and internationally accolades since the company was created in 2013.

Karl Mason, commented: “Winning the gold award for taste at The Peoples Drinks Awards really tops off what has already been a run of amazing achievements for Masons this year. The fact that these awards are voted on by the public makes us especially proud. We’ll be raising a glass to celebrate as we look to mark our fourth year in business this June.”

Ben Lindsay of Garnish Communications, organisers of The Peoples Drinks Awards said: “The concept for these awards stems from talking to consumers at our events and our own experience judging on awards panels. Masons Dry Yorkshire gin scored the highest of any gin in the competition on taste alone, receiving a well-deserved gold taste award. It was universally enjoyed by all of our panels, a testament to the hard work the team in Bedale put in to developing a well-rounded gin.”

Masons Dry Yorkshire Gin is available online and at a growing list of stockists throughout the UK, ranging from small independent stores to high-end retailers such as Harvey Nichols.
