The 2021 International Wine + Spirit Competition (IWSC) has awarded the botanic spirits brand, Martin + Brown with a Silver medal. The start-up was awarded for their Eastern Spice Blend, having clocked up 90 points during the competition.

80 experts judged over 4,000 samples at the largest spirits judging event in IWSC history, with spirits coming from 86 different countries. But it was the start-up, Martin + Brown that snatched up the Silver medal, having only launched in September last year (in 2020). 

Martin + Brown was Founded by Kim Martin-Brown, and a Master Chef of Great Britain, James Brown. The pair, who has extensive knowledge of food and drink, – developed the two complex recipes based on flavours they love. 

The brand is already stocked in: Masters of Malt, Comesto, Borough Box, Order.Beer and in Larderonline.co.uk. After two years of development and a bold, mid-pandemic launch, the Martin + Brown story is one of huge success, thanks to excellent reviews on Difford’s Guide, and features on major podcasts.

Martin + Brown‘s ‘Botanic Distillate,’ – uses a base spirit produced from sugar beet (grown in the fields of East Anglia), – that is distilled into an artisan copper still to 40% ABV, with two very unusual blends of botanicals. Their ‘Botanic Distillates’ has been developed to complement food, and to excite jaded palates and mixologists, with new and fresh flavours. The ‘Botanic Distillates’ range includes: 

  • A complex ‘Eastern Spice Blend’ with 14 botanicals, herbs and spices, – that is bursting with fresh coriander and hints of: orange, sumac, fennel and clove, followed by the warmth of ginger, and a light rose fragrance. 
  • An ‘Italian Spice Blend,’ containing 11 botanicals, herbs and spices, rendering a savoury spirit with a wonderful tomato aroma, heat and fragrance coming through from Cubeb pepper, and chillies with hints of caper, and a lasting oregano flavour finish.
