The Scottish Gin Awards is the national awards programme which recognises, rewards and promotes Scotland’s growing range of high-quality gins at home and abroad. Judged by a panel of 28 independent experts in distilling from across the UK, the programme judges over 120 gins in a blind tasting competition and assesses written entries from distilleries across Scotland each year. The annual celebration event in Glasgow has become a must attend fixture in the UK gin industry calendar attracting nearly 700 guests. Created and operated by KDMedia, a PR and event business, the gin events are part of a growing annual portfolio of 30 events in Scotland which host upwards over 3000 people each year.
“The Scottish Gin Awards is part of an industry-wide effort to promote the quality and desirability of Scottish gin across the UK and around the world. Sponsoring International Scottish Gin Day is part of our commitment to help Scottish gins break into new markets and serves a perfect reminder that Scotland is a world leader in the craft of distilling.”
