Cardi Bay Vodka stars at the prestigious Global Vodka Masters 2022 awards

Cardi Bay Vodka

Gorse-inspired Cardi Bay Vodka, which is distilled on the Mid Wales coast, has been awarded a Master Medal at the prestigious Global Vodka Masters 2022.

The medal, awarded in the flavoured/infused vodka category, follows on from the success Eccentric Spirit Co achieved earlier this summer at the Global Gin Masters.

Eccentric Spirit Co’s newly released Cardi Bay Vodka is distilled at In The Welsh Wind, an award-winning distillery near Cardigan on the Ceredigion coast.

The Global Vodka Masters panel of leading spirits specialists awarded the Master Medal to Cardi Bay Vodka due to its “delicate nose with notes of vanilla and coconut”. Bernadette Pamplin, panel chair, noted that the vodka is “an easy tipple for a bartender to make tasty drinks with”.

Cardi Bay Vodka celebrates Cardigan Bay and is inspired by the yellow gorse which grows along the coastline and influences its vanilla and coconut aromas flavour profile.

Ellen Wakelam, co-founder and director of In The Welsh Wind Distillery, which produces the entire Eccentric Spirits Co range, said: “Being awarded a prestigious Master Medal at the Global Vodka Masters means so much to us.

“It’s a testament to all the hard work we put in perfecting Cardi Bay Vodka’s flavour profile and it’s really exciting that our first vodka has been highlighted as a Master award winner by leading spirits specialists.

“Since launching Cardi Bay Vodka in July 2022 we have received endless positive feedback from customers, so we’re thrilled that it has been recognised on a global stage in this way.”

The Global Vodka Masters 2022 is a prestigious competition hosted and chaired by The Spirits Business. Medals are awarded in each category based on assessments and judgements made during a blind tasting by a panel of leading spirits specialists.
