QUINTESSENTIAL BRANDS GROUP CLAIMS WORLD’S BEST GIN PRODUCER TITLE FOR A FOURTH TIME

Quintessential Brands Group, the award-winning spirits producer and owner of G&J Distillers, the world’s oldest continuous gin distillery, has been recognised by one of the leading drinks industry competitions as the best gin distiller in the world for the fourth time in the last five years.  

The company received the prestigious Gin Producer of The Year Trophy at this year’s International Spirits Challenge (ISC) awards ceremony, with the group CMO, Shane Hoyne, and Head of Quintessential Brands Spirits Solutions, James Lousada, collecting the award on behalf of the company. 

Quintessential Brands Group co-founders, Warren Scott and Enzo Visone, acquired G&J Distillers in 2011 with a clear vision to put G&J Distillers at the heart of the gin renaissance that was beginning to emerge. Eight years later, the company has been awarded gin distiller of the year four times in the last five years, produces some of the fastest growing gin brands in the world and is at the heart of the global gin resurgence. 

Quintessential Brands Group prides itself in putting quality and innovation at the heart of every spirit it produces. Not only for its award-winning premium brands including Thomas Dakin, BLOOM, Opihr and G&J Distillers flagship brand, Greenall’s, but for key retailers and customers too. Quintessential Brands Spirits Solutions offers world-class commercial production solutions, as well as sales and distribution services. 

As Gin Distiller of the Year, G&J Distillers is not only responsible for the gin brands that consumers the world over know and love, but also for many of the award-winning own-label gins available in leading supermarkets and convenience retailers around the world.   

Warren Scott, CEO and co-founder of Quintessential Brands commented; “We’re delighted to have once again received the title of Gin Producer of the Year – it’s a great honour for us to be recognised by our industry peers and it means a lot to everyone in the company. This award really is a testament to the dedication and hard work of so many within our business but especially to our team at G&J Distillers who work tirelessly to produce spirits of outstanding quality for consumers and customers to enjoy worldwide.” 

Joanne Moore, Master Distiller, added; “Innovation is at the heart of everything we do when it comes to gin distilling, but never to the detriment of quality. As the world’s foremost gin distillers with over two centuries of experience, we believe innovation must respect the rich heritage, craftsmanship and traditions of gin, whilst also showcasing gin’s versatility and intrinsic juniper character. We’re thrilled to receive this recognition for our work from the industry and we’re incredibly proud not just to win, but to be leading the global gin category today, right here in Warrington, where quality English gin originated.” 

James Lousada, Head of Quintessential Brands Spirits Solutions, said, “Our Spirit Solutions business continues to go from strength to strength, with our ability to produce the highest quality, bespoke gins, that meet customers individual business need. Our unique business model means that we can be agile, move at a fast-pace to achieve the highest quality and most cost-effective result – something that sets us apart.
