Sheffield Dry Gin wins Great Taste 2022 award!

Tasted by the experts, Sheffield Dry Gin is awarded a Great Taste 1-star in 2022.

We've been named among the top food and drink producers globally this year, picking up a highly prized 1-star Great Taste award for our Sheffield Dry Gin! More than 14,000 products were put through the competition’s rigorous blind judging process; with Sheffield Dry Gin dubbed a “very appealing classic dry gin with pronounced juniper and subtle botanicals” at the world’s most coveted food and drink awards.

4,078 products were awarded a Great Taste 1-star – ‘food and drink that delivers fantastic flavour’, 1,237 were awarded a Great Taste 2-star – ‘above and beyond delicious’, and 241 were awarded a Great Taste 3-star – ‘extraordinarily tasty food and drink’. Described as “silky and appealing on the palate with juniper freshness, mild peppery notes, and a clean finish”, our gin was a big hit with the Great Taste judges!

Made with locally sourced fennel, cardamom and gentian root and expertly crafted in small batches in the centre of the city, Sheffield Dry Gin was one of 5,556 products to receive a Great Taste award in 2022 (which is only 39.1% of the total products entered). Recognised as a stamp of excellence and actively sought out by food lovers and retailers alike, Great Taste, organised by the Guild of Fine Food, values taste above all else. All products in the line-up for judging are blind-tasted: every product is removed from its packaging so it cannot be identified, before entering a robust, layered judging process. Our Head distiller, Dean Hollingworth said: “We are delighted to have won a Great Taste award for our Sheffield Dry Gin. I am so proud to be adding the iconic black and gold Great Taste logo to our signature gin.”

“Being recognised with a Great Taste 1-star means so much and makes all the determination and hard worth it! Great Taste is the most recognised accolade for taste and quality in the food and drink world, so it really is a big win!” Lucy Allen, Gin Sales Manager at True North Brew Co. concludes. Sheffield Dry Gin is best served over ice with Franklin & Sons Original Tonic and a wedge of orange.
