With just under one month until Spirits Kiosk’s celebration of all things gin - Junipalooza - the IWSC is delighted to highlight some medal winners from its 2022 spirits judging confirmed for the event.
Now in its ninth year, Junipalooza is a unique opportunity to meet the people behind the brands. It is the creators and innovators behind the gins who will be pouring the drinks at the event, so it’s a great opportunity to really get an understanding of the industry and the work it takes to create the liquid.
There is also an opportunity to attend IWSC spirits judging committee member Olivier Ward at a masterclass on Sunday 12 June “Going for gold”. During the masterclass he will share the factors that differentiate medal winners from non-medal winners, plus an opportunity to practice your judging skills and ‘be the judge’ to see if attendees at the masterclass tasting corroborates the medals the gins have been awarded!
