Jawbox Gin is proud to announce it was named the winner of the Quality Drinks Award 2018 Best Gin at the Quality Food & Drink Awards in London.
Food NI members Jawbox Small Batch Gin wins big! Jawbox Gin has been named Best Gin at The Quality Food & Drink Awards. The awards recognise and reward the best in retail, wholesale and foodservice in the United Kingdoms food and drink industry.
Founded by Gerry White in 2016, Jawbox Small Batch Gin is a classic London Dry Gin. It is distilled in County Down, Northern Ireland at the Jawbox Distillery. Gerry White, Founder of Jawbox Gin, says,
“I’m absolutely delighted that we have won the Quality Drink Awards Best Gin. It’s fantastic for the brand and a huge pat on the back for the whole team. Jawbox is only what it is today thanks to the passion and enthusiasm of the people behind the gin, including the talented team at Drinksology who designed the bottle and the dedicated team at our distillery.”
Distilled in County Down, the grain is grown in fields in Kircubbin, located in the picturesque Ards Peninsula.
Jawbox is triple distilled in a traditional copper pot, with eight of the eleven botanicals infused in the spirit.
The final three botanicals are put through the vapour extraction method. This preserves their delicate flavour and aroma. Local heather from Black Mountain, which overlooks the city of Belfast, is amongst its distinctive blend of botanicals.
Two new Jawbox Gin Liqueurs joined Jawbox in 2018 – Jawbox Pineapple & Ginger and Jawbox Rhubarb & Ginger!
