The judges’ verdicts are in and once again Coastal Distillery has been recognised for the excellent quality of its gins by the Great Taste Awards.
The flagship offering in the range is Coastal Gin, which this year has won the Great Taste Awards’ prestigious three-star ranking. Flavoured with a unique mix of botanicals chosen to celebrate the fabulous Lincolnshire coastline, Coastal Gin was rewarded by the judges for its “complex medley of spicy, fruity, rock pool notes”. The three-star award puts Coastal Gin among the top 1.5% of products rated by Great Taste.
Coastal Distillery doubled its accolades when its other leading product, Dam Raider Gin, was awarded two stars by the panel. A dry gin, the judges praised its “good balance of sweet and savoury botanicals in the mouth with citrus notes coming through distinctly on the finish alongside hints of perfumed spice.” The award makes Dam Raider a top 8% product.
Coastal Distillery managing director Alex Hull said: “We’re over the moon with these results. They prove that the meticulous effort that goes into flavouring our spirits is winning over afficionados and consumers alike.
We have fine-tuned the botanical mix in Coastal Gin for depth and subtlety and our hard work has paid off.”
Victory in Great Taste Awards rounds off a great summer for Coastal Distillery. In July it won Silver for Dam Raider and Bronze for Coastal Gin in the IWSC Awards 2021.
These awards have put Coastal Distillery on the front foot as it emerges from the pandemic with big plans for the future. Already popular in the region and beyond, the firm is in the process of rebranding – giving a fresh look and sophisticated appeal to its award-winning product lines. The plans include further expansion into the national and international spirit markets.
Alex Hull concluded: “We’re confident in the flavour of the spirits we produce. Now we’re exploring ways of making our bottles and labels more distinctive by tapping into the things that make Coastal Distillery truly unique. Our location here on the Lincolnshire coast is an important part of that.”
