Master of Malt Trade announces a brand new nod to the unsung heroes in our industry: the very first Clubman Trophy!


Master of Malt Trade, the industry led wholesaler, are launching their own way to recognise those who might get overlooked in the hospitality industry – the Clubman Trophy. 

“We want to celebrate those quiet heroes who keep the wheels turning in businesses; to give a platform to those who are in the background and won’t usually get  any type of recognition other than a pat on the back at the end of a shift.” Explains Liam Belton, Trade Lead at Master of Malt Trade. 

It’s free to nominate your Clubman of choice and nominating is quick and simple. Just click on this link  where you will be prompted to provide a few simple details, including the name of your nominee and their place of work. We’ll then collate these entrants and put them to our judging panel.

The winner of the Clubman Trophy will not only be graced with this fine accolade, a trophy AND a rosette (yes, really!), but will also win an overnight trip to the amazing Copper Rivet Distillery in Kent  (with food, travel and accommodation covered))!

Located at the heart of Chatham’s Historic Naval Dockyard, Copper Rivet Distillery is a family-founded business which has been creating only the finest gin, vodka, whisky and liqueurs since its opening in 2016. Situated inside the Grade II listed Pumphouse No5, the distillery’s innovation reflects that of the local craftsmen who once built world-class ships there.

Opened in 2021, The Pumproom restaurant boasts an impressive dining room and beautiful riverside terrace, making it the perfect setting for delicious food and cocktails all year round.

Nominations will close on 29th March, with the winner being announced mid April.
