Laura drinks to success 24.10.19

LAURA Bonner is drinking in the success of her latest accolade having secured the Ulster Business Woman of the Year title at the prestigious Graham Norton Gin Inspiring Awards 2019.
The Inishowen based entrepreneur behind premium craft drinks business The Muff Liquor Company is extremely proud to be named as one of Ireland’s most inspiring women in recognition of the success of her craft potato Gin and Vodka products that have been taking the drinks industry by storm across the world.
Laura Bonner is awarded Ulster Business Woman of the Year title at the prestigious Graham Norton Gin Inspiring Awards 2019.
The announcement was made at the Clayton Silversprings Hotel when 500 guests took part in the glamorous event hosted by RTE’s Miriam O’Callaghan and Bibi Baskin.
Speaking after the awards ceremony Laura said she was over the moon at securing the award and thanked everyone for their support.
“I was in total shock when they read out my name, it was an amazing surprise. I feel so honoured to have won the Graham Norton Inspiring Women Awards, Ulster Business Woman of the Year. To be in league with such amazing women in leadership across the country, only makes me want to strive for further success.”
This accolade comes just weeks since the company’s success when they secured the People’s Choice at the Irish Gin Awards. Laura commented: “This award was particularly special to us because it’s the ‘People’s Choice’ and is a real endorsement from our loyal customers. We enjoy great success at blind-tasting competitions, so for the public to vote for us in this hugely significant competition is a real coup. We are incredibly proud of what we have achieved since our company was established in early 2017. ”
The Muff Liquor Company is the brain child of Inishowen entrepreneur Laura Bonner and her business partner, Manchester based Tom Russell. Inspired by Laura’s grandfathers recipes of poitin, a spirit made from potatoes, Laura and Tom have founded a premium potato based craft spirits company located in Muff.
Their Muff Gin and Muff Vodka premium craft drinks are currently being produced in West Cork by John O’Connell who is also producing Graham Norton’s new gin.
