Míl Gin, a premium offering from the respected Pearse Lyons Distillery in Dublin, has taken home Gold at the Gin Masters Awards 2019, which took place in London recently.
The prestigious awards took place at The London Wall Bar & Kitchen, judged by an expert panel of tasters, industry peers noted for their superior knowledge in the industry. Now in its tenth year, the awards are hosted by Spirits Business and have become the gold-standard acknowledgement of excellence in the gin industry. This year’s Gin Master Awards 2019 marked the biggest Global Spirits Masters Awards in history, with more than 300 entries.
Competing in the contemporary category, Míl Gin nabbed the coveted Gold Award – a massive honour for the relatively young brand. Created by the Pearse Lyons Distillery, Míl Gin has become a massive success over the last year. It has just launched in the USA and is available in 30 states there, with distribution growing rapidly. Meanwhile, Míl has penetration of around 300 bars in the Chinese market, with Hong Kong close behind since it launched there in June.
In addition to the gin, Míl Gin has introduced Míl Gin Spritz, a pre-mixed gin and tonic that has opened up premium gin to a whole new market – offering consumers an on-tap and canned option.
The small-batch gin is distilled with Almond, Basil, Bergamot Orange, Gooseberry, Juniper, Olives, Orris, Rosemary and Thyme. On the nose it has summer fresh citrus and subtle herb notes of basil, thyme, rosemary and piney juniper. The taste is fresh bittersweet with a clean citrus finish.
Míl Gin is available nationwide in reputable off-licences, Musgrave, SuperValu, Dunnes Stores, Tesco and The Loop Dublin Airport, with an RRP of €50.
