The International Wines and Spirits Competition ceremony and banquet took place once again at London’s Guildhall.

The event was preceded by an opportunity to taste the award winning wines and spirits. Gin, and an interest in #gin is clearly on the rise, as IWSC reported an increase of 60% in competition entrants.

The results were:

The IWSC Trophy for London Dry Gin

This award, sponsored by The Gin Guild, awarded to Steinhauser GmbH for See-Gin Bodensee Dry Gin

The IWSC Trophy for Contemporary Style Gin

Again sponsored by The Gin Guild, this award went to Captive Spirits for Bourbon Barrelled Big Gin

Well deserved Gold medals also for Martin Miller’s, Tarquin’s Gin, Herno Juniper cask rested, and Bedrock.
