The Melbourne Gin Company is thrilled to share that our Single Shot Gin has been awarded a Master Medal at The Spirits Business Gin Masters 2022, for the second time. We’re incredibly proud as this is the highest accolade a gin can receive.
The annual competition was well represented and very competitive with over 513 x entries from 244 x different spirit companies around the world.
This accolade comes after a series of top awards for our gin, including:
– Gold, San Francisco Wine & Spirits Competition 2022
– Double Gold, San Francisco Wine & Spirits Competition 2018
– Gin Master, Global Gin Masters 2018
– Gold, Global Gin Masters (Asia) 2018
“The Melbourne Gin Company took home a Master medal for MGC Single Shot Gin, liked for “bags of juniper on the nose””, said The Sprits Business Gin Masters.
The Single Shot Gin was first made in 2018, named after its method, a single distillation. This is unlike our original Melbourne Dry Gin, introduced in 2012, in which botanicals are individually distilled and then blended together.
The botanical mix for the Single Shot Gin includes Juniper Berries, Orange Peel, Angelica Root, Australian Bergamot, Cardamon Pods, Tasmania Leatherwood Honey and Lavender.
