Spirit news

Mon 27 Mar 2023

Similarly to whiskey, gin has been one of the IWSC’s biggest spirits categories for several years. Judging was overseen by Editor of The Spirits Kiosk and Gin Foundry, Olivier Ward.

You can discover more about what Olivier had to say during our judging here but what appeared to excite our judges rather a lot this year were the various sub-genres like grape-infused gin, cask aged, old Tom, flavoured gin, which illustrated the breadth of the gin category, but also highlighted the overall amounts of creativity.

6 gins were awarded a Gold Outstanding medal this year, as well as 42 gins receiving a Gold medal, 251 receiving a Silver and 489 a Bronze medal.
