    It is, of course, fascinating to see how the various gins 'placed' according to the cocktails they were used in. But what is it about their flavors that earned them these distinctions? For instance, what is it about Beefeater's flavor profile that made it the clear Martini winner? Why is an Aviation made with Plymouth the winner? Certainly, this information was at the heart of discussion at the competition. Telling us why these particular spirits merit these awards is every bit as important as who won the award, isn't it?

    @rosey40; agreed. I'd like to consider changing the gins I use, depending on the cocktail, but without knowing "why" i should do this, not sure i will take the risk of buying 4 different gins

  • Were there any gins involved in this tasting besides the few biggest, mass produced brands that won these categories?
