Entries now open for the 5th year of these unique and important Gin Awards
The Australian Gin distillers Association welcomes you to enter your gins into the 2022 Australian Gin Awards.
I wish to thank Bill Lark for his years as the Founding Chairman and I now welcome Mikey Enright to fill the shoes of an industry giant, which I’m sure he will do admirably. Mikey will lead a team of 12 highly experienced spirits professionals as this year’s judges and I thank them for their service to the industry.
In 2021 there were 109 Australian and 11 New Zealand Companies who entered 370 gins into the Australian Gin Awards. The judges awarded seven trophies and 277 medals being 56 Gold, 110 Silver and 111 Bronze.
By focusing on GIN in the Australian spirits industry our Association offers an incentive for the established distillers plus the new craft distillers to step up and see how they compare with their peers in the same marketplace.
The 12 judges will provide brief written comments for every entry in order to pass on their thoughts regarding your gin.
There are two sections for entries:
- Australian Gin Awards $180 per entry.
- Australian Gin Packaging Competition $90 per entry and $30 each for subsequent entries.
Good luck everyone and thank you for your support to the Association
