22 Jan Echlinville Gin named Ireland’s Best Contemporary Style Gin
Echlinville Single Estate Irish Pot Still Gin has been named Best Irish Contemporary Style Gin at the World Gin Awards.
Echlinville Gin is now in the running for the title of World’s Best Contemporary Style Gin, the winner of which will be announced at the World Gin Awards on 21 February.
This is the latest accolade for Echlinville Gin, which won the Gold Medal in the Irish Gin category at the Irish Whiskey Awards 2018 and a coveted Three Star rating at the Great Taste Awards in 2017.
We are one of the few distilleries to distil our own neutral base spirit for our gin. Echlinville Gin is crafted only from barley grown, harvested and floor malted on ourdistillery farm. The malted barley is mashed, fermented and ‘trickle pot distilled’ to create the unique base spirit that sets Echlinville Gin apart in terms of taste and provenance.
Infused with carefully selected botanicals including local gorse flower petals and seaweed from Strangford Lough, Echlinville Gin is complex and perfectly balanced, boasting fresh floral and zesty citrus notes. Sweet and smooth, with a malt character and rich creamy mouthfeel, it is as comfortable sipped neat as it is in the company of elderflower tonic, lemon and mint, its recommended serve.
