At the international tasting competition The Global Gin Masters 2019 BARRISTER PINK was awarded a silver medal in the category Flavoured Gin. He had to compete with recognized world brands.
The decision of awarding was taken collectively by experts of the competition. Traditionally, the jury consisted of well-known mixologists, bar managers, analysts and journalists, as well as heads of specialized organizations.
One of the members of the jury Ben Lindsay was amazed how the category of Flavoured has developed in recent years: "As flavored gin continues to be the most discussed subcategory, I was looking forward to this part of the tasting. When we evaluated this category earlier, there were comments about the overly sweet nature of flavored gins, but I was surprised that this time the samples did not contain sweet or synthetic fruit flavors."
Thanks to international recognition, BARRISTER became the first Russian-made gin in history to be placed on the world map of gins. Previously, BARRISTER gin has received recognition in the international arena.
