The Spirits Business Awards 2019 winners

Best New Product

Winner: Hayman’s Small Gin

This was one of the most hotly contested categories in the competition, but judges were hugely impressed by Hayman’s Small Gin, a product that really got the industry talking in 2019.

As the low‐and‐no trend gathers pace, it brought something completely unique to the market, and very cleverly is still able to legally call itself gin. Since Hayman’s Small Gin is “so rich in botanical character”, consumers need only add 5ml of 43% ABV spirit to their glasses of tonics.

Runner‐up: Black Juniper Amaro

Produced by Australia’s Never Never Distilling Co, Black Juniper Amaro was deemed to be a category‐defying spirit that exemplified creative thinking at its best.

Special commendation: Cotswolds Peated Cask Single Malt Whisky

Following on from its highly rated single malt, Cotswolds Peated Cask Single Malt Whisky was believed to be a fantastic addition to the distillery’s portfolio.
