Rugby Distillery Wins Silver at Farm Shop & Deli Product Awards 2023

We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded a silver at the Farm Shop & Deli Product Awards!

Supported and judged by leading farm shop & deli retailers, top wholesaler buyers and owners and industry experts, the Farm Shop & Deli Product Awards is an initiative that recognises and rewards the best in specialist food and drink products. The awards are open only to products that are sold in farm shops, delis and other specialist food retailers.

These awards are unique, as they assess the overall business model of products and not just taste. The rigorous judging process reviews everything about the product including the full value chain, branding along with taste ensuring products are not just great tasting but are well set to actually sell in the independent sector.

The judging process for our product category was tough with an array of fantastic products put before a panel of industry specialists, and we are honoured to have received a silver across our entire gin range.

Judges Feedback

We received amazing feedback that our judging scores were very impressive..

…”it was evident that a great deal of time, effort, and dedication was invested in the development of your product. Congratulations on this achievement!

As you know, we made some changes to the awards this year and, in partnership with leading wholesalers and retailers, enhanced the criteria in which products are judged against.

Winners are not only great tasting, but also have a strong value proposition, which is equally important to wholesalers and retailers. Your achievement is certainly something to celebrate!”

Developing our relationships with other local businesses, building a community and supporting each other is a huge part of what do at Rugby Distillery.  Our products are available at several local farm shops and deli’s and we thank them for their support in helping us achieve this award.
