Kiwi brand Scapegrace has been named the world’s best gin at the International Spirits Awards in London

Gin is exploding in popularity across the globe at the moment, so to be named the world’s best gin at the world’s most influential spirits competition would be a pretty big deal. Beating more than 600 other gins to take out the supreme award last week was Kiwi brand Scapegrace, whose Scapegrace Gold was named Best London Dry Gin at the prestigious International Wine and Spirits Competition in London. “We couldn’t be more thrilled, with over 600 gins, from 90 different countries, to come out as the world’s Best London Dry gin is unreal,” says Scapegrace co-founder Mark Neal. “Since day dot, our aim was always to create a gin for New Zealanders which we could take to the world. Being so isolated from the rest of the world, drives you to look at things differently, it also means you need to punch above your weight to be noticed. This recent accolade will defiantly help put our amazing NZ spirits industry on the global map.”
