No.1 Fairham Gin is delighted to announce that we have picked up two Silver awards for our Dry Lancashire Gins at the 2022 IWSC Spirit Awards.
As we approach our one-year anniversary since releasing our first expression as a distillery in April 2021, Signature Edition has earned 94 points out of 100, a Silver award, after going through the world renowned International Wine & Spirit Competition judging process that took place in London this year, with judges being world-renowned experts from across the global spirits trade.
Ochre Edition, which launched in November 2021, has also been awarded Silver by the judges, earning 90 points through the process. As the gin market grows year on year, the accomplishment to receive such high praise from the IWSC judges is something that, as owners and distillers, we are very proud of.
Ellis says, “Since launching last April we have been on an amazing journey where we have shouted about how great our gin is, and now, we finally have the recognition to show for it. It’s a fantastic way to mark our first year as a distillery.”
Liam adds, “Whenever we speak to people at markets or interact with gin lovers on social media, we’re always blown away by the response our craft gin gets. Secretly, we know what we have made are fine additions to the huge gin market and our unique expressions are something that you won’t find anywhere else.”
We can’t quite believe that we are nearly one years old, and we now go into our second year as a distillery hoping to add to our core range of Editions. We are both currently enjoying the experimental stage of making a new recipe for No.1 Fairham Gin.
Liam continues, “We’re eager to keep exploring the art of being craft gin distillers and our next release will fit in nicely with our other two Editions, complimenting them very well and further emphasising what we are about as a distillery.”
Fancy an award-winning bottle of gin? (Sounds good, right?!) Well, you can purchase our Lancashire gin below or you can find us at local markets and events across Lancashire and beyond.
