This is a massive achievement and we’re all immensely proud. Our signature Kirkjuvagr Gin took home a Bronze medal from the inaugural Scottish Gin Awards last year, so for Arkh-Angell to go one better and win a Silver is absolutely fantastic and testament to the efforts of all our team here in Orkney.
In total, 46 producers and 80 gins progressed to the final stage of the national competition, which celebrates Scotland’s booming gin industry.
Covering 18 categories, the awards assessed taste and business performance and were judged earlier this year in two sessions by one of the most experienced gin tasting panels ever assembled in the UK.
Twenty-two tasters including Master Distillers from some of the UK’s biggest gin brands and the UK’s leading professors in distilling, blind tasted and graded every sample under strict technical conditions, adjudicated by sensory management experts, Cara Technology. One hundred and sixteen gins, all distilled in Scotland, were assessed - a 52% increase in the number of gins entered last year.
