Martin & Brown wins big at 4th London Spirits Competition 2021.
A drinks business duo won big at a London competition with two of their newly-developed spirits created during the first coronavirus lockdown.
James and Kim Martin-Brown, owners of Martin & Brown whose drinks are created in East Anglia, scooped two silver medals at the London Spirit Competition.
Kim, who was born in Ely and has several family members living in Little Downham and Pymoor, has strong deep-rooted connections to the local area.
