Local distillery and liqueur producer, Haut Maison has recently been awarded silver at this year’s World Liqueur Awards for its Limoncello.
With over 150 entries into this year’s World Liqueur Awards, Haut Maison’s first foray onto the global awards stage saw it become the only producer in the British Isles to receive an award in the fruit liqueur category.
“I’m over the moon at receiving the award and also pleasantly surprised at the same time, I felt like the 2018 crop of lemons were slightly better by comparison to 2019’s which we used for our entry, so I wasn’t overly hopeful we’d come back with a result.
“To receive a silver award is absolutely amazing and now I’m confident we can aim for gold once we get our hands on 2020’s fresh batch of Guernsey lemons.
“This is the first time we’ve put any of our range up for an award and the result is testament to the sterling work of our local growers and the small team here at Haut Maison,” said business owner, James Le Gallez.
The company, which was founded in 2012, launched their Limoncello, made with locally grown lemons, in 2018 and it has quickly become a strong seller among the varied range of locally produced alcoholic beverages. The business has witnessed a period of rapid growth over the past 12 months as it continues to expand its range of local gins and liqueurs.
