Wednesday 27th November saw Vince and Giles attend the Portsmouth Society’s annual Design Award at the Royal Maritime Club, having been nominated for the Best Reuse of a Building.
The panel of esteemed judges had visited the distillery back in October to assess the work we had done to the four casemates in Fort Cumberland.
Due to the strict criteria often entries don’t meet them and there is no winner. However in 2019 The Portsmouth Distillery Co. was triumphant winning the best reuse category!.
Giles said: ‘I thought they were impressed when they visited, but I didn’t think we would win!’
Vince took the opportunity to talk about the companies vision for Fort Cumberland’s rebirth as ‘The jewel in the crown’ of the waterfront city of Portsmouth.
