In The Welsh Wind
We were referred to IDS by one of the brands that we work with. We were particularly keen to receive feedback on our first ‘own brand’ gin, after developing award winning gins for other brands and businesses. We recognised the value in having our spirits assessed by such a well qualified panel and felt that this would give us confidence in marketing and promoting our product. The process was incredibly easy. After speaking with Toby, we simply sent him a bottle of our gin and he organised samples etc for the tasting panel. We received detailed and valuable feedback which has helped us as we enter awards – and we were delighted to see the scores we received from IDS quickly reflected in competitions such as Gin Masters and USA Spirits Ratings.
Little Brown Dog Spirits
The International Drinks Specialists gave us the assurance we needed to nail down our final recipe. It was a massive decision for us to make after a lengthy development period. We knew what we wanted to create but the clear, unbiased feedback from IDS on the three recipes we submitted gave us the confidence to go forward and pick that final recipe. It was very reassuring to have that extra voice from someone who’s opinion we valued immensely. Little Brown Dog would have no hesitation in recommending the services of IDS, thank you!
