Make it a double! Lincolnshire gin wins two new national awards

Lincolnshire-made spirit, Marie Jeanne’s Pink Gin has been named a winner of the Flavoured Gin category and Best New Flavoured Gin (Released 2020) at The Gin Guide Awards 2021.

The two accolades come just a month after the gin also won Gold in the national round of the World Gin Awards 2021. The gin was also named a #1 Bestseller for 2020 by the Craft Gin Club.

Marie Jeanne’s Pink Gin is made by the Massingberd-Mundy Distillery on the South Ormsby Estate in the Lincolnshire Wolds.

Head distiller, Tristan Jørgensen, who launched the distillery in 2019 said:

“I’m super happy and proud to have been named winner at The Gin Guide Awards 2021 in the Flavoured Gin category and also to win Best New Flavoured Gin. This is Marie Jeanne’s second big win in the last few months, having won Gold at the World Gin Awards 2021 and in addition to being named the Craft Gin Club best selling pink gin of 2020. I am super proud of all our hard work and want to thank all the people who help me day to day to achieve such accolades. Thank you!”

The Gin Guide Awards are an independent and global celebration of our historic, diverse and growing spirits category. Strongly recognised and highly respected by the trade and consumers across the world, The Gin Guide Awards showcase and celebrate the exceptional products, distilleries and people within the gin industry.

Finalists and Winners of the The Gin Guide Awards are selected through a rigorous blind tasting and unique scoring process developed by Paul Jackson, founder and editor of The Gin Guide. To present the most rounded and widely relevant results, the carefully selected and expert judges bring together specialisms in gin distillation, spirits retail, mixology, events, distribution, marketing and PR.

With hundreds of entries from over 30 countries in the awards this year, winners required unanimous high scores from the judges across the key characteristics of each gin.

Paul Jackson, the founder and editor of The Gin Guide said:

“Marie Jeanne’s Pink Gin is vibrant and fruity, balanced with a traditional core and layers of contemporary botanicals. It’s an impressive example of the new breed of ‘pink gins’ that are drier and give more prominence to classic gin characteristics. On the nose it is boldly fruity with strawberries, raspberries and floral hibiscus.

“On the palate it is deeply flavoursome with strawberry and raspberry, but also a dry note of cranberry, zesty lime peel, floral hibiscus and spicy pink peppercorns which give depth, complexity and balance.

“It’s this that sets it apart as not just being a one dimensional fruit gin. With the addition of tonic, strawberry and raspberry remain distinctive, with balance, crispness and freshness rather than any heaviness or overpowering sweetness.”

Marie Jeanne’s Pink Gin is named after Marie Jeanne Rapigeon of Versailles, an inspirational 19th century figure who fled the French revolution before becoming the owner of South Ormsby Estate, where the gin is made.

Massingberd-Mundy Distillery also produces a gin named after Marie Jeanne’s husband, Charles Burell Massingberd. Burrell’s Dry Gin is a traditional, juniper led, London Dry Gin which marries the history of the estate with a contemporary fruity explosion of taste.

The gins are made using locally-sourced ingredients and are hand-crafted and bottled at the Massingberd-Mundy Distillery.

Marie Jeanne’s Pink Gin and Burrell’s Dry Gin are available from the South Ormsby Estate website www.southormsbyestate.co.uk for £39 per 70cl bottle. ‘His and Hers’ miniature sets of both gins are also available for £10.
