St Maur elderflower liqueur, which is produced in rural Warwickshire, has been awarded Best in Category, International Liqueurs at the American Distilling Institute International Spirits Competition, which was held in the USA.
The award becomes the latest in a series of prestigious industry accolades for the drink, produced by William and Kelsey Seymour, Earl and Countess of Yarmouth, including The Las Vegas Global Spirits Gold Award; Best English Floral in the World Liqueur Awards and Great Taste Award 2 Star rating.
They are also celebrating their success in another international competition after recently being awarded a gold medal in The Swiss Spirits Review.
Commenting on St Maur’s latest accolade, William said: “It’s great to see our little drop from over here has done rather well over there! We love introducing our little drop of England’s heart to new consumers to share and enjoy wherever they are in the world.
“These latest international awards are just one way of doing that, and flying the flag for our beautiful corner of England.”
The judges were made up of a panel of highly respected industry experts, including journalists, distillers, mixologists, consultants, educators, bartenders, importers and brand ambassadors, who were full of praise for this unique liqueur: “St Maur has elegant fragrance, intense notes of elderflower, good balance of sweetness and good length on the palate, nice complexity.”
St Maur is a hand-crafted premium elderflower liqueur, originally produced for William and Kelsey’s wedding guests, which took place at William’s family home, Ragley Hall.
St Maur is a contemporary liqueur made to be versatile, built around the same four components needed to make a cocktail – a base spirit, a sweet and sour element, flavour and appearance.
It can be enjoyed with all kinds of cocktails, and long drinks, in a simple fizz with soda, tonic or ginger ale; it works even better as a royale when mixed with Champagne or Prosecco. St Maur can also be enjoyed on the rocks, or simply on its own.
Here at Hand Crafted Drinks Magazine we have been fortunate to sample this liqueur, which has been the focus of several reviews. We are not at all surprised that St Maur continues to win awards, because it is so good. It’s versatility is almost unmatched with many liqueurs, which can often be too sweet or need a good mixer.
