Atom Brands has been crowned the 2017 UK Gin Producer of the Year at the International Wine & Spirit Competition (IWSC). The accolade reflects excellence across the Atom Brands gin portfolio, with the title awarded as gin entries into the competition climbed 50% year-on-year.

Up against some of the biggest names in UK gin, including Diageo and Warner Edwards, the award recognises the wide range and quality of gin within the Atom Brands portfolio and signifies a huge triumph in a category that is experiencing tremendous growth. Gins within the Atom Brands portfolio include Bathtub Gin, That Boutique-y Gin Company’s selection of independently bottled and bespoke expressions, 1897 Quinine Gin (supporting Malaria No More UK) and the terroir-exploring Origin Single Estate Gin range.

Atom Brands also collected both of the available IWSC gin trophies at the Annual Awards Banquet last night - The London Dry Gin Trophy for That Boutique-y Gin Company’s Swedish Rose Gin from Hernö, and The Contemporary Gin Trophy for Bathtub Gin Navy-Strength. Atom Brands also performed strongly in the whisky category, listed as a finalist in the Scotch Whisky Producer of the Year shortlist.

Atom Brands’ Managing Director Ben Ellefsen commented: “We are incredibly proud to have been named UK Gin Producer of the Year by the International Wine & Spirit Competition judges. Our approach has always been simple - the pursuit of excellence without compromise, and this blind-judged result stands testament to the quality of our gin portfolio.”
