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.
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.
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.
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.
