Moore House Cocktail Company scoops three Great Taste Awards

Moore House Cocktail Company is proud to announce its achievements at the Oscars of the food and drink world, having won Great Taste Awards for three of its pre-mixed cocktails.

The company’s 1-star award-winning cocktails were the Old Fashioned, Margarita and the Cacao Espresso Martini, the latter being a limited edition released last Spring, which will now form part of a gift pack in the coming months. All three were entered into the ‘Pre-mixed Cocktails & Hard Seltzers’ category, where a one-star rating is considered ‘Simply Delicious.’

There was stellar feedback from the judges. The limited-edition Cacao Espresso Martini was described as “a very good espresso martini that feels like a bar-made product. It has balanced sweetness and acidity, uses high quality ingredients [and] it is a true expression of a coffee-based cocktail and is beautifully made.”

The Old Fashioned, forming part of the Moore House core cocktail range, was noted as “a touch of warming summertime fun… the perfect sundowner. It’s both comforting and refreshing. Not just a hug, but a lazy stretch and sigh in a glass.” Other judges praised the “lovely colour and rich, smoky and orangey aroma,” the “great viscosity and mouthfeel,” the “classic bourbon whiskey warmth, sweet vanilla notes, slight note of smoke and well-judged level of sugar,” and a “clean and persistent” flavour.

The Margarita, also from the core range, was noted for its “instantly enticing” and “delicious and aromatic” nose, and “having a wonderful complexity whilst clearly Margarita-noted. The palate startles with its lime zing and acidity. We did enjoy the uncompromising punch of this very successful RTD Margarita… a defibrillator for your senses.”

The Moore House expert range of small batch bottled cocktails features six timeless classics: The Margarita, Old Fashioned, Manhattan, Negroni, Espresso Martini and Daiquiri, alongside seasonal limited editions. Each is available in three sizes, perfect for sampling, sharing and hosting (100ml, 200ml and 500ml); ready to shake or stir with ice. 

Moore House Cocktail Company was started in 2020 by London-based bar aficionado and entrepreneur Stephen Moore to meet the demand for delicious cocktails at home:

“To be awarded with one star from the Great Taste Awards is high praise indeed, but to win it in under one year of trading is something else. A huge thank you to everyone who has helped get our ready-to-drink cocktails to market, and to everyone else who has yet to try them – I know you’ll love them,” said Stephen Moore, founder, Moore House Cocktail Company.
