Botanic Nº7, London Spirits Competition Winner
Gattertop Drinks wins a Bronze medal at the 5th London Spirits Competition
Botanic Nº7 scored highly in the three judging aspects of quality, value, and packaging.
The London Spirits Competition stands apart from other spirits competitions by awarding spirits for their drinkability. Where other competitions focus solely on technical competence and distilling prowess, the London Spirits Competitions goes further to evaluate a spirit for its all-around excellence - in the way it tastes, looks and the value it provides. They believe that this golden triangle makes spirit drinkers more likely to buy and drink the spirit either from a retail store or at a bar or restaurant and want to laud this.
HOW IT'S JUDGED
The judging panel of 2022 was drawn from leading spirits industry professionals with direct commercial buying responsibility. This establishes the winners of the competition to be agreeable to the on-premise trade and consumers alike. Spirits were judged on the basis of three primary criteria – quality, value and packaging – and then scored on a 100-point scale.
FROM THE FOUNDER
“The extremely qualified judges, the chance to compete with thousands of excellent spirits from around the world and the stringent judging criteria of quality, value and packaging make an award from the London Spirits Competition a coveted one. We are pleased that our Botanic Nº7 performed so well at the competition.” said Gemma Standeven. “This Bronze medal demonstrates that the spirits we are making are the kind that bar managers and mixologists want to stock and spirits drinkers enjoy drinking.”
The bronze award is a welcomed addition to Botanic Nº7’s impressive accolades. The newly released botanical vodka has already achieved the silver medal for the UK’s best vodka in the infused/botanical category at the 2022 World Vodka Awards. Whilst also boasting a score of 96/100 at the prestigious IWSC Awards, making Botanic Nº7 the highest-scoring vodka in England and one of the top 5 vodkas in the world.
