Great Taste Awards 2023

The distillery entered this years' Great Taste Awards and won big!

The City of Aberdeen Distillery is the only producer of true Aberdeen Gins - the only gin distilled in the city and prides itself on it's authenticity, quality and flavours.  All of the gins are crafted with ultra-smooth organic alcohol and made in artisan batches for the best possible flavour. 

What did we win?

Both Fresh Gin and Scottish Bramble Gin were awarded 2 stars each. 
This is an amazing achievement and we're giving Alan, the Head Distiller, a huge pat on the back.

A newer gin (and customer favourite) to win an award is Thyme for Rosemary Gin (see what we did there?) which won a one star award.

What do the stars mean?

In 2023, there were 14'195 entries, and only 5904 (41.6% of the entries) received an award!

1 star - simply delicious - 4088 products
2 stars - outstanding - 1568 products
3 stars - exquisite - 248 products

So to have won 2 stars for two products is huge - that puts these Aberdeen Gins in the top 11% of products entered, beating a whopping 12'379 other products.  Wowee!
