Co Down's Jawbox named best gin at Quality Food and Drink Awards
Jawbox Small Batch Gin was named the winner of the Quality Drinks Award 2018 Best Gin at the Quality Food and Drink Awards in London last week.
Judged by a panel selected from 400 industry experts, the Quality awards recognise the best in retail, wholesale and food service food and drink products available in the United Kingdom.
Jawbox Small Batch Gin is a classic London Dry Gin distilled in County Down at the Jawbox Distillery, where the grain is grown in fields around the distillery in Kircubbin.
Gerry White, Founder of Jawbox Gin, said: “I’m absolutely delighted that we have won the Quality Drink Awards Best Gin. It’s fantastic for the brand and a huge pat on the back for the whole team.
"Jawbox is only what it is today thanks to the passion and enthusiasm of the people behind the gin, including the talented team at Drinksology who designed the bottle and the dedicated team at our distillery.”
The gin, which launched in early 2016, is triple distilled in a traditional copper pot, with eight of the eleven botanicals infused in the spirit.
Two new Jawbox Gin Liqueurs joined Jawbox Small Batch Gin Jawbox in 2018 – Jawbox pineapple and ginger and Jawbox rhubarb and ginger.
