Awards

Knockeen Hills commenced production of Elderflower 'London Cut' Dry Gin in 2010.

In 2011 following the annual reassessment of all our brands, an improvement was made to its formula and then produced at 43% vol. to further allow the delicate nature of the elderflower botanicals to surface. Later that year, it was entered into the International Wine & Spirit Competition in the 43% vol. London Dry Gin Category and awarded a Silver Medal, together with Knockeen Hills Heather Gin. Only two other brands in this category received Silver Medals; which require a minimum of 80 points.
