House of Ruhr Wins National Awards

Bryn the Gin Wins Spirit Awards


"We are pleased that our Bergmann, Renton and Vogel gins performed so well at the competition."
Bryn Jones



Wearside based Gin distributor; House of Ruhr has won silver medals at the 4th London Spirits Competition. The medals are an ultimate endorsement in the global spirits industry. House of Ruhr’s Bergmann, Renton and Vogel gins scored highly in the three judging categories of quality, value and packaging.

 

House of Ruhr was formed by retired police officer Bryn Jones thanks to his friendship with German police officer Peter Meinken whose family own a distillery in the town of Wanne-Eickel in Germany’s Ruhr Valley. His passion for the spirit inspired Bryn to set up his import business after Peter asked him to help get Gin made in his distillery to bars and customers in the North East. The Houghton-le-Spring business is delighted to be awarded the prestigious medals. 

 

“The London Spirits Competition stands apart from other spirits competitions by awarding spirits for their drinkability. Where other competitions focus solely on technical competence and distilling prowess, the London Spirits Competitions goes further to evaluate a spirit for its all-around excellence - in the way it tastes, looks and the value it provides,” said Bryn. 

 

“We are pleased that our Bergmann, Renton and Vogel gins performed so well at the competition. These silver medals demonstrate that the spirits we are supplying are the kind that bar managers and mixologists want to stock and spirits drinkers enjoy drinking. It’s great to bring silverware back to Wearside.”
