Sheffield Dry Gin wins Great Taste 2022 award

Sheffield Dry Gin

Sheffield-based brewery, distillery, and pub company, True North Brew Co. has been named among the top food and drink producers globally this year, picking up a highly prized 1-star Great Taste award for its Sheffield Dry Gin.

More than 14,000 products were put through the competition’s rigorous blind judging process; and Sheffield Dry Gin was 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”, this 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 per cent 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.

This year, the judging took place over 90 days across two judging locations (Dorset and London) with a panel of more than 500 judges. This year’s line-up saw food and drink products submitted from a staggering 110 different countries from across the world.

Dean Hollingworth, head distiller from True North Brew Co., 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.
