Our very own Raspberry Gin was featured on this weekend’s edition of Channel 4′s Sunday Brunch, tried and tested by the hosts Tim and Simon, along with the boys from JLS! It was given great reviews all round and we have been inundated with Raspberry Gin orders from the moment the segment aired!

Our Perthshire Raspberry infused Edinburgh Gin is handmade in small batches in the heart of Scotland. It is made from a traditional family recipe using locally sourced raspberries, matured with the award winning Edinburgh Gin and pure cane sugar. It can be enjoyed on its own or with soda, but our favoured way is with champagne or cava – just add a dash of Raspberry Edinburgh Gin to your favourite champagne or cava for the perfect champagne cocktail.

Spencerfield Spirit has won the Export Business of the Year Award – part of the prestigious Scotland Food and Drink Excellence Awards. The award is sponsored by Clydesdale Bank.

Alex Nicol, Managing Director, of Spencerfield Spirit Company, located in Fife, was delighted to accept the award and extended his thanks to the judging panel, he said that ‘winning the Export of the Year Award is a fantastic boost to our Company and the result of team work, from my family, office staff, agents and distributors ’.

Spencerfield Spirit has achieved so much for a small family run business. This has included investment and time in finding and working with quality importers and including navigating the complex import and labelling requirements of different countries. Nicol went on to say ‘our ongoing objective will be to continue expanding our international markets’.

Spencerfield Spirit, which is a family run business, has enjoyed a year of strong export growth, with expanding markets in the US, Australia, Spain, Netherlands and France.

At the same event last year, Spencerfield scooped the Drink – Alcoholic and Non-Alcoholic award for their Edinburgh Gin.

The 2012 Scotland Food and Drink Excellence awards were presented at a sparkling ceremony at the Dunblane Hydro Hotel, last Thursday (24 May) Spencerfield Spirit Company now looks forward to being the exclusive gin this year at Edinburgh International Book Festival.

Spencerfield Spirit Company entered our Sheep Dip Whisky, Pig’s Nose and Edinburgh Gin for the Ultimate Spirit Challenge earlier this year and we are so chuffed to be recognised our scores are below:

Edinburgh Gin Score: 91% Accolade: Excellent, Highly Recommended
Tasting Notes from the Judges:
Soft, subtle, smooth and creamy, this juniper-light and enchanting gin is bright and delicate, with hints of coriander and citrus leading the way. Pretty and delightful.

Sheep Dip Whisky Score: 90% Award Finalist Accolade Excellent, Highly Recommended
Tasting Notes from the Judges:
Bright notes of wild honey, vanilla bean, and waves of toasted grain fill the nose. Ideally balanced with a silky core flanked by subtle spice and oak notes. A refreshing aperitif.

Pig’s Nose Whisky Score: 88% Accolade: Very Good, Strong Recommendation
Tasting Notes from the Judges:
The nose is filled with the scent of sweet tea biscuits with accents of honey, toasted grains, and roasted nuts. The palate is fresh and rich with gobs of sweet malt coating the tongue and throat. A beautiful everyday Whisky.

Our first big fair in 2012 will be next weekend. Come and see us at the Weald of Kent Craft Show. It takes place at Penshurst Place Nr Tonbridge.

Over 250 different stands from around the UK bringinh you the very best in unusual and inspiring crafts, not usually found on the high street. Something for the whole family, there will be live music, free show features, demonstrations and workshops. Tickets and further information at www.ichf.co.uk

There will be a specialist food and drink marquee and that is where you will find us. Our stand number is FH30. We will be stocking our new launch Amoroso Oloroso – come and ask John and Linsi for a sample you will not be disappointed.

Amoroso Oloroso is our new addition to our whisky list. The whisky was distilled in Scotland in 1999, matured in bourbon barrels for three years and then shipped to Sanchez Romate in Jerez who racked the whisky into Oloroso Sherry butts to mature for a further nine years. It was then shipped back to Scotland to be bottled earlier this year. This is a special limited edition, once it is gone that’s it.

The fabulous Bread & Roses deli and restaurant in Paris, France has a particularly fine display of our Pig’s Nose Whisky. Alex Nicol, our MD, sent us the photo, the rest of us in the office would love to visit too.
