Alla svenska vinnare i World Gin Awards 2021

Scrolla

World Gin Awards är en del av World Drinks Awards som grundades i Österrike 2004 och är idag en av världens största dryckestävlingar. Vi har ju tidigare blivit väldigt bortskämda med svenska framgångar och 2020 haglade vinsterna. I år var det onekligen Lydén Distillery som stack ut.

Emil och Roger Lydén grundade destilleriet 2019 och släppte sina första produkter under förra året. World Gin Awards utsåg Lydén Distillery Dry Gin till ”Worlds best London Dry Gin 2021” och lyckades dessutom knipa titeln ”Best Swedish Navy Strength Gin 2021”.

Lyssna gärna på Ginpoddens avsnitt 2 där jag intervjuar Emil och Roger om deras resa och arbete med Lydén Distillery (Spotify, Apple Podcaster, Google Podcasts eller Anchor).

Hellström Gin Dry Gin vinner ett silver i kategorin ”World’s Best Classic Gin” med motiveringen:

”A soft nose with floral blossoms, citrus, pine and pepper. The palate is smooth and creamy with notes of orange, hay, warming spice, and a touch of sweetness from honey, sap or pollen.”


Bergslagen Organic Gin vinner ett brons i kategorin ”World’s Best Classic Gin” med motiveringen:

”Spruce needles and pine on the nose. Pine flavours remain dominant on the palate, with some hints of lemon, green grass, angelica and coriander, and a peppery spice finish. Pleasant, but quite simple.”


World’s Best Contemporary Style Gin


O.P. Anderson Distillery Organic Dry Gin blir ”Country Winner” i kategorin ”World’s Best Contemporary Style Gin” med motiveringen:

”Fairly classic nose with juniper, coriander, grapefruit and tangerine. On the palate, fennel and orange give candied liquorice flavours. The sweetness and anise notes fade to a pepper finish.”


Bergslagens Tropical Gin vinner ett silver i kategorin ”World’s Best Contemporary Style Gin” med motiveringen:

”Lots of berry fruitiness on the nose, which carries through to the palate by the bucket-load. A pleasant spirit that could stand up to more juniper.”


Hellström Gin Dry Gin vinner ett brons i kategorin ”World’s Best Contemporary Style Gin” med motiveringen:

”A powerful, fragrant nose with resinous pine, green herbs, chamomile, white grapefruit and meadow grass. The palate is well balanced with an fantastic oiliness, warm spice, earthy juniper and the cut of grapefruit acidity. Some orange and pepper notes in the finish. Superb balance and control of flavours and complexity.”


Hernö Gin London Dry vinner ett guld i kategorin ”World’s Best London Dry Gin” med motiveringen:

”Shy on the nose at first, but then come hints of citrus, rosehip, hay, a little honey, and coriander. The palate brings warm spices, sweet liquorice, juniper and orange marmalade. Citrus notes in the finish. A delicate, well-balanced and refined gin.”

Mill Gin London Dry Gin vinner ett brons i kategorin ”World’s Best London Dry Gin” med motiveringen:

”Fresh, resinous pine hits the nose with citrus coriander and baking spices. These baking spice notes continue onto the palate, with some green herbal notes, giving it a slightly Christmassy flavour. A full, smooth body with a sharp edge.”


Revsunds Distillery Karlsbergs Gin vinner ett brons i kategorin ”World’s Best London Dry Gin” med motiveringen:

Spirit Of Hven Stella Nova Oak Aged Gin vinner ett silver i kategorin ”World’s Best Matured Gin” med motiveringen:

World’s Best Navy Gin


Lydén Distillery Navy Gin blir ”Country Winner” i kategorin ”World’s Best Navy Gin” med motiveringen:
