Whitby Gin Wins International Awards

Whitby Gin Wins International Awards

Published by Jon Burke at 10:46am 25th July 2018. (Updated at 10:49am 25th July 2018)

Whitby Gin has received two International Awards, only four months after launching.

Winning a Silver Medal in the International Wine and Spirits competition in the London Dry Gin category, Whitby Gin has been selected by an expert panel to win this top accolade, using blind taste testing to rank it amongst hundreds of entries from the biggest names in gin from around the globe.

In addition to this, Whitby Gin has gained a Gin Masters Silver Medal.  Over 220 gins had entered into this year's competition, the largest number of entries in its history, meaning competition was fierce.

Jessica Slater and Luke Pentith set up Whitby Gin in a small family utility room following a camping holiday round the west coast of Scotland after being inspired by the distilleries in the many coastal towns.

Jess, from Whitby, recalls:

“We felt that Whitby deserved to have a spirit of its own. The diversity of gin is the perfect complement for a town with such a rich history and setting”.

After many months of trials, the perfect recipe was developed. Whitby Gin is a drop in a big gin-filled ocean but it looks like it is already starting to make waves.

Distilled using the finest natural and locally sourced botanicals including moorland heather, Yorkshire honey and sugar kelp foraged from Robin Hoods Bay. The botanicals signify where land meets sea.
