Daniel Day-Lewis, eat your heart out

We didn’t get into this business to win awards but that doesn’t mean it’s not gratifying to be recognised for the work we do. In fact, receiving awards for doing something we love makes it even more rad. Last Wednesday, Maverick Drinks won IWSC Spirits Distributor of the Year for the third year in a row (and fourth time in five years)! The company only turned five in September of this year, so we consider this a pretty huge endorsement of what we’re trying to do: bring premium craft spirits to people that want and deserve better.
