Martin Miller's Gin awarded highest scores

Two platinum medals and a gold for Martin Miller’s Gin in blind tasting, 17 years after it was declared ‘the best gin in the world'
The highly-respected independent drinks review source, awarded Martin Miller’s Gin its highest accolade – the Superlative Platinum medal – for both its iconic Westbourne Gin and Original blend and the Exceptional Gold Medal for its first cask-aged gin 9 Moons.

The Beverage Testing Institute provides product ratings and reviews, as well as buying guides and education for both consumers and trade. It has been providing the fairest, most consistent reviews of beer, wine, and spirits since 1981. Its scores are generated by expert panellists, comprising professional retailers, restaurateurs, journalists, buyers, bartenders, and sommeliers— all rigorously screened, audited and trained in its proprietary blind tasting methodology.

When Martin Miller’s Westbourne Gin – a favourite amongst mixologists looking to give a more ‘old school’ authenticity to their classic repertoire of cocktails – was first launched in 2003, the Beverage Testing Institute awarded it 97 points and declared it the best gin in the world and Spirit of the Year. Today, the gin achieved the same score and therefore the highest accolade available – a Superlative Platinum Medal – showcasing how this gin has held its status as a true classic in the industry. 

Martin Miller’s Original Gin – considered the purest expression of the brand’s classic taste – followed it closely with the same medal and a score of 96 points. Matured for nine moon cycles in French Oak barrels in cool Icelandic climes, Martin Miller’s 9 Moons Gin, achieved 93 points, and was therefore recognised with the Exceptional Gold Medal. 

We raise our glass of Martin Miller’s Gin and celebrate this extraordinary recognition.
