UK: Tobermory Mountain Gin recognised as Best in the World
The latest gin to be released by Tobermory Distillery has fought off stiff international competition to claim the title of the World’s Best Classic Gin by a top industry awards body.
Launched in October, Hebridean Mountain Gin impressed judges at the World Gin Awards, winning the overall prize of World’s Best Classic Gin as well the Country Winner for Scotland. Tobermory Hebridean Gin, the Isle of Mull distillery’s core expression, also took Silver in the same category, following on from its Gold award last year.
Exclusive to Amazon, Mountain Gin is infused with hand-selected botanicals alongside a splash of new make spirit from the distillery’s whisky stills. Wild heather from Mull’s mountains complement rowan berry, rosehip and 10 other botanicals inspired by Mull, to create a gin which is smooth and sweet with a gently warming spice. Both small batch gins are wholly inspired by their beautiful island home on the Inner Hebrides and can each be enjoyed as a delicious gin and tonic or used as a base ingredient for an enticing selection of cocktails.
Laura Thomson, global brand manager at Tobermory Distillery said: “To be presented with this incredible award less than six months after going on sale is an absolutely amazing achievement and we couldn’t be prouder. With a unique taste profile and beautiful packaging, Mountain Gin is a truly stunning addition to Tobermory Distillery’s portfolio, perfectly encapsulating the beauty which can only be found on the Isle of Mull. Congratulations to everyone at the distillery for producing one of the world’s best gins.”

Today, it is a thriving, expressive and unique distillery, true to its idyllic location on the Hebridean island of Mull.
Inspired by the expressive nature of Mull, a splash of spirit from the Tobermory whisky stills is added to Tobermory Gin to create a unique character. Distilled on the island with a rich palate of hand-selected botanicals including juniper, tea, heather, elderflower, sweet orange peel, and just a little bit of knowledge from 220 years of history. Best served in a balloon glass, with copious amounts of ice, chilled tonic water, and garnished with a sprig of thyme, a slice of fresh red blood orange, and a dash of dried hibiscus flowers.
