The Craft Distillers’ Alliance is proud to announce the UK’s first ever Craft Gin awards, in collaboration with David T. Smith of the website www.summerfruitcup.com. David has spent a fair amount of time working with Craft Gin in the USA alongside the American Distilling Institute and will shortly be releasing a book on the subject, The Craft of Gin written with America’s Gin Reviewer Aaron J. Knoll.
The UK currently boasts over 20 craft distilleries that produce gin, with another 6 scheduled to be operational by the end of 2013. The Craft Distilling Alliance Gin Competition is a chance to celebrate this new wave of independent distillers and to promote the production of Craft Gin. As such, there is no fee for producers to enter this inaugural event.
A judging panel of industry professionals with a penchant for gin is being assembled and the competition will take place in central London on Monday 24th June.
The competition is currently only open to Craft Gins produced in the UK. For more information, please contact David T. Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org.
