The results have just been announced for the highly prestigious World Gin Awards and Salcombe Gin has been awarded the ‘World’s Best Gin Design’ for its Voyager Series ‘Mischief’ gin, which was created in collaboration with Mark Hix MBE.
The World Gin Awards are the global awards selecting the very best in all internationally recognised styles of gin. In addition to the ‘World’s Best Gin Design’, Salcombe Gin Voyager Series ‘Mischief’ has been crowned ‘Best Limited Edition Design’ as well as ‘Best Presentation Design’ and Voyager Series ‘Arabella’, which was developed in partnership with Michael Caines MBE, has been named ‘Best New Launch Design’.
Commenting on these latest achievements, Angus Lugsdin, Salcombe Gin co-founder, says: “A huge amount of care and attention went into the design of the Voyager Series. These limited edition gins are presented in a stunning white ceramic bottle, featuring an embossed outline of the iconic gin pennant and a bespoke debossed copper stopper commissioned for this series.”
Angus continues: “We are thrilled to win these latest awards for our Voyager Series following on from our success in 2017 when we were awarded Gold for our flagship gin ‘Start Point’ just six months after its launch. Winning awards such as these is testament to our team’s hard work and continues to position us amongst the leaders within the ever expanding gin category.”
Each release from the Salcombe Gin Voyager Series is created in collaboration with a world-renowned chef or iconic winemaker, each of which reflect their individual personality and style. The Voyager Series commenced with ‘Arabella’, created in partnership with Michael Caines MBE, followed by ‘Mischief’ in collaboration with Mark Hix MBE with the final 2018 release being ‘Guiding Star’, a partnership with Niepoort. Two exciting new releases will follow in 2019.

Launched in 2016, Salcombe Gin is distilled on Provident, a 450l bespoke copper pot still which stands proud behind glass doors at the distillery for all to see whilst enjoying a ‘Salcombe & Tonic’ in the tasting bar overlooking the Salcombe estuary. Next door is The Gin School where visitors can learn about distillation and create their own bottle of gin.
