Makar Gin Nominated 5 Times In Scottish Gin AwardsMonday 26th June 2017
We are delighted to say that our entire range of Makar Gin has been shortlisted in the first ever Scottish Gin Awards.
The awards, sponsored by The Scottish Gin Society, celebrate the resurgence of quality small batch gin production across Scotland.
Makar's latest addition, Makar Old Tom, has been nominated in the tightly contested Specialty Gin of the Year category.
To round off the awards, The Glasgow Distillery Company has been nominated in the Scottish Distillery of the Year category alongside seven other distilleries including Caorunn Balmenach, Eden Mill, Edinburgh Gin and Summerhall Distillery.
The finalists were announced after a specialist panel of twelve judges blind-tasted over 100 gins. The winners of each category will be announced at an exclusive award ceremony in Glasgow on the 14th of September.
Chairing the judging panel was Stephen White, founder of The Scottish Gin Society who said:
“Chairing the judging session for the Scottish Gin Awards was challenging but one which the panel absolutely thrived on. The evidence we reviewed showed that the Scottish gin industry is a vibrant, creative and high-quality centre for the delivery of premium product which is among the best in the world."
Co-founder and CEO, Liam Hughes, said:
"We are absolutely delighted that our entire range of Makar Gin has been shortlisted at the Scottish Gin Awards. Makar Gin is the result of all the hard work and dedication that our team of distillers and staff put in, every single day. Nominations such as this provide some great feedback for the team and tell us that what we are doing is working.
"We look forward to welcoming the awards to Glasgow on September 14th and we'll be sure to bring some of our famous Glaswegian spirit to the proceedings."
