Two friends are celebrating after they scooped the global drinks industry's top gong - with a gin they made in the spare room of their two-bed semi.<br />
<br />
Pals Martin Jennings and Lukasz Dwornik decided to dip their toes in gin-making after one too many sub-par G&Ts in their local pub.<br />
<br />
The pair couldn't afford to open a specialist distillery so they bought an 35-litre copper still and made space for it in the spare room of Martin's house in Bournemouth, Dorset, by moving the sofa bed out.<br />
<br />
And their creation has just won the highest accolade at the San Francisco World Spirit Awards, considered to be the most respected and influential spirits competition in the world.
