Country pub scoops top gin award

Award-winning country pub The Cholmondeley Arms, based near Malpas, has been named ‘Gin Pub of the Year 2019’ by The Good Pub Guide.

The award category, introduced for the first time this year, was added to recognise the increasing number of pubs now stocking an impressive selection of gins.

With more than 400 gins, The Cholmondeley Arms was deemed a worthy winner. The award recognised the Cholmondeley’s seven-year focus on gin, the pub’s annual Gin Fest, which is now in its fifth year, as well as their regular Saturday Gin Classes which continue to soar in popularity.

The award coincides with the seventh anniversary of owners Tim Bird and Mary McLaughlin reopening of the pub after extensive investment and refurbishment.

Tim Moody, general manager of the Cholmondeley Arms, said: “We’re proud and delighted. Gin has always been our favourite tipple and the backbone of our offer here. 

“Being recognised with such a prestigious award is a real boost for the whole team who have worked so hard to bring ‘Gin to the Inn’ here at the ‘Chum’. I’d like to say a big thank you to the team and also to our excellent customers – we couldn’t have done it without you.”

Among the runners-up in the same category were two other Cheshire hostelries - The Bhurtpore in Aston near Nantwich, and The Architect in Chester.
