Tickled pink: Lincolnshire gin wins Gold at World Gin Awards

Marie Jeanne’s Pink Gin has been awarded Gold Winner in the national round of the World Gin Awards.

The fruity and indulgent French-style artisan gin is produced by Massingberd-Mundy Distillery on the South Ormsby Estate in the Lincolnshire Wolds.

The spirit won Gold at this year’s World Gin Awards, in the Best Flavoured Gin category in England, beating hundreds of other entrants, including gins by internationally established brands.

The accolade is a major achievement for the Massingberd-Mundy Distillery and its head distiller, Tristan Jørgensen who founded the distillery in August 2019.

Tristan said: “The World Gin Awards are very well known throughout the drinks industry and are recognised as one of the most prestigious awards there is. To have been awarded Gold is absolutely incredible, especially since we only launched our first gin – Burrell’s Dry Gin – in April last year.

“We’ve been on an incredible journey, and even though Covid-19 might have created some challenges along the way, we’ve pushed through to launch two delicious spirits and win this fantastic award.

“I’m absolutely thrilled with this award, and the response we’ve had from the local community, customers, aficionados and others in the drinks industry has been wonderful. Because of the success so far, we’re growing our team at Massingberd-Mundy and we’re working on more exciting projects for the future.

“With this award, we’ve beaten gins from some of the biggest and best-known distilleries in the country and we now have the right to say that Marie Jeanne is the best flavoured pink gin in the country, according to the panel of World Gin Award judges.

“Marie Jeanne’s continues to break stereotypes of what a flavoured or pink gin should be.”

The World Gin Awards are part of the prestigious World Drinks Awards programme which selects, rewards and promotes the best gin in the world. Drinks were taste-tested blind by a panel of experts who reviewed each entrant and selected the winners.

The World Gin Awards accolade is not the first award for Marie Jeanne’s Pink Gin, which was also named the Craft Gin Club’s No. 1 Bestselling Pink Gin for 2020.

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.

The spirit is described as an unconventional, sweet but dry pink gin which marries the history of the estate with a beautiful burst of fresh, red berries.

A 70cl bottle of Marie Jeanne’s Pink Gin can be bought online for £39.00 from www.southormsbyestate.co.uk.
