Granite North Gin underwent a gruelling 6 point scoring system including a double blind tasting and chemical analysis scoring a total of 90/100 in this year’s International Wine and Spirits Competition.
The IWSC has been running for 50 years now, originally founded by wine chemist, Anton Massel in 1969. Accepting entries from nearly 90 countries with over 400 global experts judging some of the best wines and spirits… certainly a tough competition!
Earlier this year, Granite North was entered 2 further international competitions. Achieving a silver accolade in the International Spirits Challenge, after enduring a scrupulous blind tasting by an expert panel of World-renowned judges.
Granite North Gin was also awarded a silver medal in the London Spirits Challenge in April, scoring the highest Scottish Gin!
Despite the trifecta of silver medals, the hard work doesn’t stop! The team will be busy prepping for a busy Autumn period with events across the country including House of Dun, Stirling Gin Festival and an inshore tasting in Elgin with Gordon and MacPhail!
