GINspirational! Staffordshire-based Distillery scoops award: Image 1 Searching for a locally produced wedding tipple? Nelson's Timur Gin made in Uttoxeter has been awarded a Silver Medal in the 2019 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

The annual competition is now in its 19th year and according to Forbes Magazine, is quickly earning its own praise as the industry standard. The prestigious competition received over 3000 spirit entries from around the world this year.

Nelson's Timur Gin, the first in the world to commercially use the Timur pepper ingredient, picked up the prestigious prize in the gin category, the largest category in the competition by far, with over 330 entries.

A highly qualified and trained judging panel, made up of over 40 experts in the spirits industry recognised Nelson's Timur Gin as an “outstanding spirit that shows refinement, finesse, and complexity”, choosing to select the spirit as one of the best examples of its category with a silver medal.

The award comes hot on the heels of Nelson's Distillery & School expanding to a limited company and launching their first rum products. Nelson's Distillery & School (nelsonsdistillery.co.uk) is the 2016 creation of Neil Harrison, who developed the award-winning Timur gin recipe in 2018.

Speaking about his award-winning gin, master distiller Harrison said “we are extremely proud of this spirit. Using the Timur pepper which is grown and consciously sourced in Nepal, we have created a world's first and only gin with wonderful zesty citrus flavours and a sharp, spicy aroma”.

Of the actual award Greg Kimber, sales and marketing director went on to say “we're absolutely delighted to have won this award. It's an indication that our gin is world-class.”

The distillery produces six varieties of gin and two varieties of rum which are distributed globally as well as through UK stockists including Waitrose, Harrods, Majestic Wine plus many independents.
