As you will know, the nation has gone slightly mad for gin, being a rapidly growing section of the drinks market over the course of the last year or two. Seeing new distillers popping up regularly, as Brits we are becoming incedingly innovative with our gin production processes as well as the flavour we use.

As a result of our keen interest in gin production, British gin companies are being recognised globally for their efforts. Just this week, Yorkshire start-up, Whitby Gin, scooped a prestigious prize, beating 50 competitors to win the Best London Gin title at the World Gin Awards.

Set up just ten months ago by a young couple, the brand is now being stocked across the country, with its creators, Luke Pentith and Jessica Slater, incredibly proud of what the brand has evolved into.

“There were over 50 other gins in the frame, including a number of well-known brands, so we are very proud of our achievement,” Pentith said.

Celebrating local produce, the gin is said to be made from various local botanicals. This includes honey, sugar and more. Being inspired by the historic town of Whitby, its unusual taste obviously struck a chord with the judging panel.

“Authentic craftsmanship is at the heart of what we do,” Pentith continues.
