Meet The 2020 Vodka Of The Year
United Kingdom’s G52 Botanical Vodka - Fresh Citrus announced as Vodka Of The Year & also grabbed a gold medal.
Glasgow Distillery Company’s G52 Botanical Vodka - Fresh Citrus from the United Kingdom grabbed “Vodka Of The Year” along with a Gold medal at the London Spirits Competition held on July 8, 2020.
G52 Botanical Vodka - Fresh Citrus is distilled with the 100% natural and fresh ingredients, sourced from around the world and handcrafted with care in our traditional copper pot still, Annie. This vodka is inspired by the merchant past on which Glasgow was built.
G52 Botanical Vodka Ingredients & Tasting Notes: Fresh Citrus is distilled with zesty botanicals including fresh grapefruit, lemon, limes, and oranges as well as rosehip and spicy fresh ginger. The result is a fresh and vibrant spirit of unique character, busting with citrus brilliance and perfect for pairing with soda or tonic water, over ice with a juicy wedge of fresh pink grapefruit.
Founded by Liam Hughes, Mike Hayward and Ian McDougall - The Glasgow Distillery Company embraces the pioneering spirit of Scotland’s first licensed distillers as it adopts its name from one of Glasgow’s original distilleries. In 1770, The Glasgow Distillery Company was founded at Dundashill and remained active until consequent closure at the beginning of the 20th Century.
In 2014 The Glasgow Distillery Company re-opened becoming the first Single Malt Whisky Distillery in Glasgow for over 100 years. The Glasgow Distillery Company is re-establishing the metropolitan Scotch Malt Whisky tradition alongside the great whisky regions and bringing Glasgow Malt Whisky back to life.
The founders hope that the establishment of the first Glasgow Distillery heralds the start of a whole new age of distilling in Glasgow.
