Nicholas Hinton, Owner, and Managing Director at the Hinton's of Bewdley, shared insights on their participation in the renowned competition: “We were already aware of the LSC before and had seen it on various products. We have entered several different competitions over the years, but this was the first time we have entered this one. It is very difficult to know which ones to enter as there are so many now.”

Although it was their inaugural entry into the London Spirits Competition, the distillery's decision was influenced by a recommendation from another esteemed distiller. Reflecting on the impact of the three awards, Nicholas acknowledged the positive influence: “It's not always easy to measure the impact, but much of it is positive. We have labeled all bottles and added them to our marketing and point-of-sale materials.”

The distillery seized the opportunity to leverage its success, issuing press releases, engaging in social media promotion, and running various advertisements to announce its triumph. Nicholas commended the competition, noting, “The winners' promotional material is good with better advertising, and prices are comparable to other competitions.”
