Chalgrove Artisan Distillery Awards
The LSC is one of the world’s leading competitions that judges Spirits quality alongside packaging and value. The competition was stiff and judges were discerning awarding just 26 Gold and 415 medals in total. Our OX44 Gin was one of the lucky 26 Gold award winners with a combined score of 92 points. There were over 700 entrants in this competition. Go team CAD!
Individual Best In Show By Country awards demonstrated the diversity and innovation around the globe. The team at CAD were selected in this category and our OX44 gin was voted best Gin in the UK. Moreover, our gin was voted second best Gin in the world, being pipped at the post (by one point!) to a South African distillery. Gin asserted its ascendancy on the market with a whopping 179 awards and we smashed it! There were entrants from 44 different countries around the world from as far apart as Fiji and France and to Armenia and Venezuela.
The World Gin Awards are the global awards selecting the very best in all internationally recognised styles of gin. Our OX44 Gin was entered in the Contemporary Gin category and was recognised with a silver award at this year’s competition which the team were thrilled with. Contemporary Gin is a term for gins described as “New-Wave” and must be bottled at a minimum of 37.5% ABV.
This competition is the only competition of its kind in the U.S. that rates spirits according to 3 variables; Quality, Value and Package. Our OX44 Gin received an overall silver award. In terms of the taste component our OX44 gin received a 95/100 and this was one of the highest scores from all entrants, which was so pleasing.
