The Scottish Gin Society has announced the return of their Consumer Awards for 2020 - with the winners decided by the Scottish gin drinking public. 

Now in its 3rd year, the poll – which is now open for 2020 – saw almost 6,500 votes cast last year in a bid to nominate the country’s favourite Scottish Gin brand, making it the biggest poll of its kind in the Scottish Gin community.

In 2019, Isle of Harris Gin took the top spot for the second year running, but the organisers say that it was far from a one-horse race and that the results showed the diversity that exists within the Scottish Gin industry, with the top ten being a mix of big and small brands.

To vote, simply head to their dedicated poll page here, and as a thank you, the Gin Society say you will be entered into a draw to win a bottle* of one of the final top 3 Scottish Gins.

The poll closes on 7th February with The Scottish Gin Society announcing the Gold, Silver and Bronze winners on 11th February, as well as the Top Ten gin brands.

Alison Higgins, brand ambassador for The Scottish Gin Society said: “Every vote counts, so whether your favourite is a household name or a small batch local gin, make sure you show your support by voting and sharing with your friends.

“Given the overwhelming response we’ve had so far, it looks like this is definitely going to be the biggest year yet.

“These Awards give the Scottish Gin-loving community a voice and an opportunity to vote for their favourite, showing the brands their love and continued support.

“We wish all the Scottish Gin brands every success, and we can’t wait to see who features in the Top 10.”
