Australian Gin Awards Results 2021

The Senior Judging Team

109 Australian and 11 New Zealand Companies entered 370 gins into the 2021 Australian Gin Awards. The judges awarded seven trophies and 277 medals being 56 Gold, 110 Silver and 111 Bronze.

By focusing on GIN in Australia’s spirits industry our Association has offered an incentive for the established plus the new craft distillers to step up and see how they compare with their peers in the same marketplace.

Our Association is very proud of the caliber of our judges, lead by the Godfather of Gin Mr Bill Lark. As Chairman, Bill gives us all leadership and confidence in our planning and practice for the judging.

In 2021 the challenge of judging surrounded by Covid-19 was an interesting one. Through the use of Google Docs, guest judges working with our senior judges and new stewards in three states and the ACT, we successfully completed the judging over a two week period. Thank you and well done all. Let’s hope our regular team of Senior Judges will be able to judge in a Covid free environment in 2022.

The Association is growing in step with the number of distilleries by offering a national road show of gin festivals aimed at Australia’s gin drinkers. These events give great opportunities for our distillers to show their medal-winning craft gins and sell into an ever increasing market.

2021 Senior Judges: Bill Lark, Mikey Enright, Lindsay Silcox, Glenn McPhee, Scott Fitzsimons, Andrew Howell and Charles Casben.
Chief Steward: Chris Rose.
2021 Guest Judges: Philip Jones (ACT), Steve McDermott (NSW), Krystal Hart (NSW), Kristy Lark-Booth (TAS), Belinda Bowman (QLD).

Chairman’s Report

“Well 2021 has been another tough year for Australia and the Australian spirits industry. Amazingly the industry continues to grow with a record, yet again, of high quality Australian Gins in this year’s Australian Gin Awards.

My thanks go to Judith Kennedy and her never failing family and staff to be able to pull off an almost seamless competition with Gins being sent to a number of states where judging panels and stewards acted professionally and in isolation. Wonderful organisation and technology came to the fore and I couldn’t be more pleased to have been part of this competition. This could only have happened with the tremendous support of our judging team and my special thanks go to them. I would also like to thank the many wonderful Aussie gin producers out there who had the confidence to enter their Gins.

Like all the entrants I am excited in anticipation of the results being announced at the end of the month. Good luck to all the entrants and let’s all look forward to a more normal year in 2022.

Cheers for now,
Bill Lark – Chairman
