A FAMILY run gin distillery in Bewdley is celebrating a first place win at the Three Counties Malvern Autumn Show.

Hinton's of Bewdley bagged the people's choice award for its Wyre Forest Gin - which impressed BBC Saturday Kitchen chef Matt Tebbutt.

Guests at the show sampled a host of regional gins and voted for their favourites over the three days.

Nick and Angie Hinton make the award-winning spirit - which was given the top prize for the second year running - in their home in Damson Way.

Angie Hinton said: "We've been distilling in Bewdley for four years now.

"It's lovely to be back out there again. We know we've got a good gin."

Chef Matt Tebbutt went on to taste the gin and buy his own bottle at the show.

Mrs Hinton added: "It was absolutely amazing for us. That was really nice."

The distillery was also awarded third place for its Worcestershire Pear Gin.
