Makar Dominated Cask Gin Award For Second YearFriday 21st September 2018
Last night we celebrated a big win for our Makar Mulberry Aged Gin, which was named Cask Gin of the Year at the Scottish Gin Awards.
Our Makar Mulberry Aged Gin, which is matured in bespoke 50-litre virgin mulberry wood casks over a period of ten weeks, beat stiff competition from Eden Mill and Pickering’s to pick up the Gold award in the Cask Gin category, meaning that Makar has dominated the Cask Aged category in Scotland for two years running, following last year’s win for Makar Oak Aged Gin.
The Mulberry Aged Gin expression is distinctive, as we are one of only a handful of distilleries to have experimented with this type of wood. We source and sample wood from a variety of countries, to ensure any wood used is of the utmost quality, resulting in premium produce. We believe we are the only mulberry aged gin in Scotland, so last night’s win is a fitting tribute to an exciting product; and winning the category two years in a row highlights the creativity of our talented distilling team.
A panel of experts judged a total of 116 gins in a blind tasting across six categories, deciding that Makar Mulberry Aged Gin, which offers woody aromas and notes of lemon, thyme and vanilla on the palate and a pepper finish, was worthy of the Cask Aged category’s highest accolade.
