Adam and Luke have returned to the UK following a very successful week in Oslo at Nor Shipping 2015.  
Many thanks to all who visited our stand and to those who entered our incredibly popular Plymouth Gin competition.  As promised, the prize draw took place at 12:00 on Friday 5th of June and we’re delighted to say that local student Julie Jonassen was the lucky winner.  
As you can tell from the picture, unfortunately Julie was unable to collect her prize in person but, we’re assured, her colleagues from the Brustech stand were more than happy to look after the gin until Julie was able to collect it from them.
Once again, many thanks to all who took the time to enter the competition and congratulations to Julie!
