Martin Miller’s Westbourne Gin – a favourite amongst mixologists looking to give a more ‘old school’ authenticity to their classic repertoire of cocktails – launched in 2003 and was immediately recognised for its superior quality by the Beverage Testing Institute, which awarded it 97 points and declared it the best gin in the world and Spirit of the Year. To have achieved the same accolade 17 years later, even as the gin category has expanded exponentially, demonstrates the success of Martin Miller’s Gin in creating a truly iconic product.

Reviews from the panellists included, “The Martin Miller’s Westbourne Gin features aromas of lime leaf, cologne, and white flowers with a velvety, vibrant, dry light-to-medium body and a polished, gigantic, very long exotic citrus, fresh basil, and geranium finish. A bold Gin with a seductive, perfumed aroma; balanced, alluring, and outstanding in a martini.”
