The World Gin Awards celebrates the very best in all internationally recognised styles of gin and actively promotes the world’s best gins to consumers and trade across the globe.

The competition, which attracted over 4000 gin entries, consisted of a rigorous three-step process of judging byindustry experts, including high profile journalists, specialist drinks retailers and leading distillers.

Makar Cherry Gin was judged against other gins from both abroad and domestic markets, including countries such as Norway, Belgium and Canada, ultimately coming out on top and scooping the title of ‘World’s Best Flavoured Gin’.

Makar Cherry Gin has been created by infusing ripe, seasonal fresh cherries and a sprinkling of pink peppercorn in Makar’s Original Dry Gin, before being pressed to release maximum flavour.

Mike Hayward, Co-founder of The Glasgow Distillery Company, the distillery behind Makar Gin, said: “We are absolutely thrilled that Makar Cherry Gin has been recognised as The World’s Best Flavoured Gin, especially considering the amount of fierce competition in this category.

"From the outset, our intention was to create a fruity flavoured Makar expression without sacrificing the taste and superior quality of our juniper-led gin, which has become the cornerstone of the Makar brand.

“Makar Cherry Gin is a recent addition to the Makar family, so to be recognised with such a prestigious industry award on an international stage, is an extremely proud moment for us.”

Makar Cherry Gin is available to buy from The Glasgow Distillery website for only £25.
