AN AWARD-winning spirit made in North Berwick is to be served to the world’s top musicians, after it has been selected as the gin of choice for the Brits after party.
NB Gin will be sampled by some of the biggest names in world pop, when it is served at the Sony Music BRIT Awards After Party, which takes place in London on 25th February.
The Scottish produced gin will be the only brand of the spirit served to the 600-strong guest list -- with stars such as Pharrell Williams and members of One Direction due to attend the party.
NB Gin’s expert mixologist has created two unique cocktails to be served to party guests on the night, including the Bees Knees, made with honey and rosemary. Bottles of NB Gin will also be placed on every table, with tasting glasses alongside.
Vivienne Muir, director at NB Gin, said today: “We are thrilled and honoured to be serving NB Gin at the biggest night in British music.
“To have been chosen from such a long list of other possible brands is the icing on the cake of what has been a fantastic year for us, and we cannot wait to let the music industry elite sample our very own handcrafted spirit.”
Morten Jensen, partner at Billetto UK Ltd, which is assisting with the drinks brands for the Sony event, said: “NB Gin was a natural choice for us. Its quality is second to none, making it perfect in cocktails but also delicious served neat with ice.
“And the chic bottle looks great. Our guests will only be served drinks worthy of this glittering event, and we are delighted to have NB Gin on the menu.”
NB Gin is produced by Vivienne and her husband Steve in a custom-made copper still at their micro-distillery in North Berwick, East Lothian.
Since its launch in October 2013, there has been overwhelming demand for the new spirit -- with it now being stocked in a long list of high-end hotels, bars, shops and restaurants across the country, from Aberdeen to London.
Sales are also thriving in Spain, Germany and Denmark, and an agreement nearing the final stages with a distributor in the USA.
NB Gin was honoured with a silver medal in the Micro Distillery category at The Gin Masters 2014, just nine months after launch.
To help with increasing demand, Vivienne and Steve have upgraded their equipment and expanded their premises for the second time in a year to make sure that they’re geared up for more significant production.
