Campbeltown Courier - - FRONT PAGE -

IT WILL be mar­ti­nis all round as Kin­tyre Gin cel­e­brates win­ning a top award at a na­tional ex­hi­bi­tion.

Beinn an Tuirc dis­tillery’s Kin­tyre Gin picked up the Clas­sic Gin of the Year award at Craft Dis­till­ing Expo 2017 in London.

The event recog­nises the world’s most prom­i­nent mas­ter dis­tillers, still mak­ers, pro­fes­sion­als and con­nois­seurs, as well as of­fer­ing talks and work­shops.

For the fifth year, the gin of the year cat­e­gory was up for grabs, and Kin­tyre Gin had to bat­tle it out with more than 80 gins from across eight coun­tries through­out Europe.

Niall Ma­cal­is­ter Hall, di­rec­tor at Beinn an Tuirc dis­tillery, said: ‘We are de­lighted to have won this award af­ter only three months trad­ing. Given the strength of the com­pe­ti­tion, and the fact that it was a blind tast­ing un­der­taken by a panel of true gin ex­perts, we couldn’t be hap­pier.’
