Global Gin Award for Bullards Spirits
Norfolk’s only gin distillery, Bullards Spirits in Norwich, has been awarded a Gold Medal in the Global Gin Masters for its Norwich Dry Gin.
With the gin sector seeing more experimentation than ever before, competition is rife, so quality and taste is the key to success and awards such as the Global Gin Masters help to put smaller brands on the map.
Run by Spirits Business, The Global Gin Masters saw 16 spirits experts sampling over 150 different gins; blind-tasting an enormous pool of entries divided by price and variety. Each expression was judged on its own merit and scored according to appearance, nose, taste and overall balance.
Of Bullards Norwich Dry Gin, Brian Calleja, bar manager at the Bloomsbury Club said, “I really like the cardamom notes here, and the hint of spice. It was quite peppery, so I could imagine it in a Martini with some cardamom bitters.”
“We’re thrilled that our flagship product, our Norwich Dry Gin, has been awarded a gold medal in these awards,” explains Craig Allison, “We work hard to create the highest quality, hand-crafted, small batch gin and awards such as this are a huge pat on the back for the whole team.”
This is the second time the distillery has been awarded gold in the Global Gin Masters and is testament to the continued skill and craftsmanship of head distiller, Peter Smith. Earlier in the year Bullards Norwich Dry Gin was named World’s Best London Dry Gin in the World Gin Awards.
