While Sheringham Distillery’s new Red Fife Whisky is winning prizes in Canada, its original Seaside Gin is picking them up across the pond. The seaweed-infused spirit just took home the prize for Best Contemporary Gin at the World Gin Awards in London, UK.
Of the gin the judges said: “Spicy, floral, citrus aroma with a hint of white pepper and anise on the palate. Olive, candied fennel seed, light bodied, mild herbal. Slightly longer finish.”
