This year, at the 6th edition of the Lisbon Bar Show, William Hinton Rum was voted the Portuguese Product of the Year – 2018 and it was the second time that Icon Key brands received this award after the same award was given to Sharish Gin in 2014. The recognition of our Madeira Rum has already earned several distinctions.
In September 2018 we had the privilege of seeing two of the runs we produce receive international recognition.
The 6-year-old William Hinton Rum was honoured with the most important and prestigious Spirits Selection medal at the Brussels World Competition, where WH competed with other spirits from 50 countries, becoming the first Portuguese product in its category to receive the “Grand Gold Medal”. Also, the William Hinton Limited Edition Brandy Casks, saw its quality recognized by being awarded the gold medal.
By 2017 the limited editions of William Hinton rum with final stage in different barrels, and the William Hinton rum 9 months, had been awarded medals at the International Wine & Spirits Competition in London and the San Diego International Spirits Competition respectively.
This work, which now culminates in the recognition of William Hinton Rum as product of the year – 2018, is revealing that our strategy to promote Madeira Rum in the national and international markets has been very positive.
Thanks to all who over the last 3 years have been working, tasting, drinking and recommending our Rum, this prize is for you all.
William Hinton Rum will continue to amaze and will soon have more news to come.
