Puddingstone Distillery’s Campfire London Dry Gin has won the World’s Best Martini Challenge 2019, it was announced on Tuesday 15th January.
Over 150 people attended the final at 100 Wardour Street, which featured six spectacular finalists. Campfire Gin beat off stiff competition, including last year’s champions, to come top after a panel of expert judges tasted the shortlisted gin makers’ showcase recipe martinis and cast their votes to crown the winner.
Their combination of Campfire London Dry Gin and Dolin Dry Vermouth garnished with orange peel “flowers” soaked in Carpano Antica Formula Vermouth created a unique and innovative twist on the classic Martini that impressed judges Rebecca Milford of BarChick, Ivan Dixon of Entroria&Coe and Gabriele Sasnauskaite of Artesian Bar at The Langham.
Well done Puddingstone, we always knew Campfire was the best!
