Following their success at the London Spirits Competition (LSC), Keepr’s and Dodd’s spirits have passed the taste test of competition judges for a second time in the past month, winning three bronze medals and a silver at the International Wine and Spirits Competition (IWSC).
The roll call of honours goes to:
Dodd’s Gin - Silver
Keepr’s Isles of Scilly Gin – Bronze
Keepr’s Classic London Dry Gin with British Honey – Bronze
Smoked Honey Bourbon – Bronze
Speaking about our winners, the IWSC said: “This is a genuinely significant achievement. This year, we tasted hundreds of spirits at IWSC. All of these were tasted blind by carefully assembled panels of experts, with each spirit tasted individually, and then thoroughly discussed by the panelists.”
This is not the first time Keepr’s or Dodd’s spirits have won at the IWSC. In 2019, Keepr’s Lemon & Pepper London Dry Gin took home a Gold Award and our New Make Single Malt achieved a Silver.
Oliver Williams, British Honey Company Commercial Director, said: “To receive this flurry of awards for the second time in a month is recognition of the outstanding taste of the spirits being produced at our distillery. The fact that these accolades were bestowed on us by the IWSC – the longest running wine and spirits competition in the world – shows the global appeal of our craft spirits.”
Three of our IWSC winners are not unfamiliar to an award or two. Dodd’s Gin also received a Silver at LSC in July and Keepr’s Smoked Honey Bourbon won Gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition (SFWSC) in March. Our ever-popular signature Keepr’s Classic London Dry Gin with British Honey to date has several accolades to its name, notably a Silver at the SFWSC and Bronze at LSC this year.
Keepr's Isles of Scilly Gin is produced exclusively for Karma St Martin's Hotel on the islands off the coast of Cornwall.
