Wight Vodka Supports Food & Drink Awards

Cowes, Isle of Wight, Great Britain

Wight Vodka is excited to be supporting Island Life Magazine’s Food & Drink Awards on the Isle of Wight this year, specifically focused on the Drinks Producer of the Year in 2007.

Ritu Manocha, Director at 50° North stated, “We’re proud to be part of the Food & Drink Awards this year. We felt a particular affinity to supporting the Drinks Producer of the Year, as it is well-aligned with our own company and Wight Vodka. Who knows, depending on who receives the best drinks producer of the year, we could come out with a new Wight cocktail!”

Martin Potter, owner of Island Life Magazine, commented: “Our objective for the Island Life Food & Drink Awards is for them to form an important part of the Island’s annual food and drink calendar. In its first year, the awards aim is to highlight the finest in food and drink produced on the Island and those retailers and chefs who are dedicated to providing regional produce and excellence in hospitality for their customers. We hope that these awards will become a respected benchmark throughout the region, being recognised as indicative of the best the Island has to offer and that they will grow in profile each year and offer an effective way of promoting the Island.”

Island Life and their sponsors are extremely excited about these awards, because they will reward the Island’s finest in each category.

Manocha continued, “This is everyone’s chance to nominate some of the best drinks producers on the Isle of Wight. The easiest way to nominate a company is online at www.isleofwight.net. Any company or product can be entered, whether they specialise in the production of beer, cider, wine, apple juice or spring water. Let’s have some fun with this!”
