Explorer’s has been awarded MASTER status at the Gin Masters Competition; this is one of the most prestigious competitions held within the industry. Explorer’s Gin was one of only two gins to be recognised as a Master in the ‘Contemporary Gin’ category.
The panel found this particular expression to be “versatile” and recommended that it should be used in a Martini, gin and tonic, or even as a sipping gin.
The Gin Masters is an annual competition organised by leading UK drinks publication The Spirits Business. Entries are blind tasted by a panel of expert retailers, bartenders and drinks writers.
To gauge how far gin has come in recent years, one need only look at how The Gin Masters competition has grown. In 2015, fewer than 100 gins were entered into the competition. In this year’s blind tasting, that number has more than trebled to exceed 300 entries, marking the biggest Global Spirits Masters competition in history.
