The Newmarket Gin, from Newmarket, Suffolk is handcrafted in small batches by The British Honey Company. It uses an exclusive combination of locally sourced ingredients to create an exceptionally smooth, refreshing, and delicious English Botanist Gin. It pays homage to Newmarket, the historic town of horseracing though its iconic design which cleverly incorporates a binocular window with a racehorse storming to victory in one of the ‘Classics’ races at Newmarket.
Noel Byrne, CEO of The Newmarket Gin explains: “We are thrilled to be recognised, for the third consecutive year by the Great Taste Awards for The Newmarket Gin. Our aim was always to create a high-end product that not only tasted delicious but incorporates the history of Newmarket. We’ve recently partnered with new distillers from The British Honey Company, who have helped us achieve this. Not only have they helped create a premium product, but we also source the majority of our ingredients locally. The Newmarket Gin is produced by Bedford Lodge Hotel, and our team love serving our own product to customers, who will be delighted to hear we have won another award!
