Thunderflower Distillery’s newest Navy Strength Gin, FireShip 58, won two awards at the recent 2021 Gin Guide Awards – winning in the Navy Strength Gin category and named as Industry Choice Award for Gin (awarded to the gin that received the highest number of nominations from industry experts).
Gins from more than 30 countries competed in this year’s Gin Guide Awards in a wide range of categories with winners selected through a rigorous blind tasting process conducted by a large panel of distinguished gin experts, distillers, retailers and mixologists.
Commenting on the awards Anicca O’Nions, the company’s MD, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to win the Master award for FireShip 58 so soon after launch.
“We spent many months developing the recipe and are just so pleased with the response to it, and to be told that it is the gin that the industry professionals have been most impressed with over the last year is really amazing.”
FireShip 58 is distilled by Thunderflower Distillery in small batches of no more than 150 bottles; the London Dry gin method uses vapour infusion to extract a complex, full-bodied flavour from 20 botanicals sourced from around the world.
Navy strength gins have become an increasingly popular niche amongst gin enthusiasts in recent years, with a high alcohol content over 57%, which provides a stronger flavour and a very smooth gin that works well with mixers, for gin-based cocktails or as a sipping gin over ice.
