  • Each national winner then competes in a second round for the title of world’s best gins in every category.

What “Contemporary Gin” stands for

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.
