Nine Tines Vodka Small batch vodka triumphs at global spirit competition

A small-batch Yorkshire vodka, made using British potatoes has come out top in a global spirit competition 

Nine Tines vodka from Collaboration Spirits, was awarded a coveted Silver medal at the prestigious IWSC Spirits Awards 2024.

Handcrafted from premium potatoes grown in North Yorkshire, Nine Tines was the highest scoring British potato vodka in the competition, a huge achievement for the brand which only launched in October 2023.

The IWSC are the world’s largest spirits awards, with over 4,000 entries from around the world judged by 100 experts.

Founded and owned by couples Richard Smith and Gwen Bromley and potato farmers Tim and Helen Westgarth, Nine Tines was described by the judges as “creamy and soft with a generous round texture”.

Richard Smith said: “We’re thrilled to have been awarded a Silver medal. Our vodka uses the best Yorkshire potatoes, which gives it a smooth, creamy taste, along with strong British provenance.”
