Founder of the Scottish Gin Society, Stephen White, said: “We’re looking forward to celebrating again with all our fantastic distilleries at the Scottish Gin Awards in Glasgow.

“Scottish gin is enjoying a unique renaissance and the Scottish Gin Society is at the heart of its success.”

Over 500 people are expected to attend the event which will celebrate the 80 gins distilled in Scotland, all of which appear in the 18 awards categories.

Kirsten Speirs, director of KDMedia, added: “We’re pleased to have reached an agreement with the Scottish Gin Society and we welcome their sponsorship as Event Host of the 2018 Scottish Gin Awards. In our inaugural year, the Scottish Gin Society were our main sponsor and made a huge contribution to the success of the first event.

“This year we have been working hard to further develop the Scottish Gin Awards to ensure that it is one of biggest celebrations of gin in Britain. We now have one of the strongest and most experienced judging panels in UK drinks competitions and we can’t wait to bring together the gin industry to celebrate all that is positive in Scottish distilling.”

• The Scottish Gin Awards celebration and dinner will take place on Thursday 20 September 2018 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, Glasgow Central.
