Top 10 award-winning gins

20th July, 2021 by Kate Malczewski

From perfectly sweet Old Toms to aromatic London Dry expressions, the gin category boasts top-quality bottlings to suit every palate. These are 10 of the best from our recent blind-tasting competition.

Expressions from Hernö, Penderyn and Four Pillars earned top marks in our tasting

Last month, The Spirits Business held part one of its Gin Masters 2021 competition, marking a return to in-person judging for the first time in more than a year.

Thanks to the continued unstoppable rise of the gin category, it was our biggest competition ever. Judges gathered at the Ibis Hotel in London Bridge to taste more than 450 gins over the course of two days, with physical distancing measures observed and samples packed by Wine Sorted to ensure anonymity.

A group of eight industry experts assessed the gins: Chris Tanner, bar manager at Milroy’s; Peter Downes, distillery partnerships specialist at Craft Gin Club; Nicola Carruthers, deputy editor of The Spirits Business; Ben Lindsay, global spirits and on-premise consultant; Ivan Dixon, independent spirits consultant; David T Smith, spirits writer, consultant and co-founder of the Craft Distilling Expo; Julian de Feral, international bar consultant and writer; and Melita Kiely, editor of The Spirits Business.

Our tasting featured a wide variety of juniper spirits in subcategories including Ultra Premium, Flavoured and Old Tom, but only a select few were awarded a coveted Master medal. Which ones came out on top?
