Boom! How chuffed are we? Our sister company, Prestigious Pyrotechnics, has only gone and scooped the Best Medium Cake award for White Spirit in the inaugural 2021 Firework Awards UK, held by the UK Firework Alliance (UKFA) in association with the UK Firework Review (UKFR).
It was an honour to be shortlisted in the Best Medium Cake category alongside other top fireworks, and our huge thanks go out to the public and firework community for voting White Spirit the winner.
Winning this firework award means so much to the teams at Prestigious Pyrotechnics and Chorlton Fireworks. It shows recognition of all the work we put in designing and developing bespoke fireworks to offer our customers an even more excellent choice.
White Spirit is a stunning single effect firework with a unique firing pattern and effect. Chris Galvin, the man behind UK Firework Alliance, said that White Spirit stands out because 'the effect is fairly rare and the triple combo finale finish adds the wow factor’. And what a massive finish! Two rows fire up in volleys of seven shots each, leading to the finale of 14 shots in one volley! Prestigious Pyrotechnics is the first company to bring this effect to the UK retail market.
On the new Firework Awards, Chris said they were created because "the whole retail firework industry has exploded (pun intended!) in recent years with many excellent products now available to consumers that we never thought possible. The quality and variation in effects, colours and ranges have never been so good, so we thought it was the perfect time to showcase and celebrate the fireworks available."
The nomination process took a couple of months, with seven judges first choosing three fireworks each. The 21 fireworks were then whittled down by process of elimination to the 12 that ended up on the voting form. Chris said, "It was a difficult process to end up with 12 fireworks in each category as there were so many good ones to choose from. Members of the public were encouraged to vote for their favourites during March, and White Spirit got 33.2% of the public vote in the medium cake category."
White Spirit is from the Prestigious Pyrotechnics premium range of fireworks. Our sister company has been designing and manufacturing innovative and creative fireworks since 2017, safely bringing the power, pace and burst size of professional Cat4 fireworks closer to consumer fireworks.
