How the jury came to this decision

  • The number of points collected for each category determines the gold, silver and bronze medals distribution. The country winner of each section is then chosen based on the best scores in a country.
  • Each national winner then competes in a second round for the title of world’s best gins in every category.
 

Contemporary

Contemporary gins are gins with taste profiles in which juniper is still recognizable, but citrus, spice and floral aromas are more pronounced than with a classic gin. Contemporary Gin is a collective term for gins that are described as “New-Wave”, “New Western” or “New American Dry”. This gin must be bottled with a minimum content of 37.5% ABV.

The who’s who of the industry says about SV Summerville Gin:

“Summerville has a hint of cardamom and white pepper with a gentle note of orange peel. The finish creates a good balance of sweetish, cinnamon-like taste. “
