In a major international competition, Tranquebar Royal Danish Navy Gin is declared the world’s best traditional gin.
The judges in “The Gin Guide Awards” have completely fallen for the Danish gin. Because the judges think it is so good, it won gold in both the “traditional gin” and “compound gin” categories. The latter category includes gins where spices, for example, have been added to give flavour.
The award-winning gin is produced by A.H. Riise Spirits ApS.
“It’s incredible that a Danish company can make a gin that eclipses those made by larger international manufacturers. It’s a really big deal”, says Lars Code, spirits expert and European Brand Ambassador for A.H. Riise Spirits.
He explains why Tranquebar Royal Danish Navy Gin is so good.
“It’s a traditional colonial gin with spices such as nutmeg, ginger, coriander, and others, which all come from former colonies in South-east Asia. While other manufacturers add so many spices and flavours that you can no longer taste that it’s a gin, A.H. Riise has produced a spirit this is unmistakeably gin but has its own unique and recogniszable taste. Gin is currently the big trend in the spirits market. But if Gordon’s Gin and Bombay Sapphire Gin are like furniture from IKEA, Tranquebar Royal Danish Navy Gin is a designer chair from Arne Jacobsen. Everyone should taste it for themselves”, says Lars Code.
With the Tranquebar Gin series, A.H. Riise Spirits continues a century-long history and tradition based on Danish sailing and trade in spices from the distant colonies. It is a tradition that the company takes seriously – and which provides connoisseurs with the most authentic experience.
At the office of A.H.Riise Spirits in Dragør, the employees are celebrating the award. But they were also a bit surprised when they received the news with the result from The Gin Guide Awards.
“It’s a huge competition – like the World Cup in gin.
When we submitted Tranquebar Royal Danish Navy Gin for the competition, we hoped to get a nice placement and perhaps an honourable mention. But to win in not just one but two categories is simply fantastic. It’s great when our dedication to providing customers with a unique and supreme experience is recognised”, says Bjørn Jensen, Director of Sales at A.H. Riise Spirits.
It is not only the judges of The Gin Guide Awards who are excited about the Tranquebar Royal Danish Navy Gin but also the customers. It is one of the most widely consumed Danish gins abroad and is sold throughout most of Europe. Tranquebar Gin was also the best-selling gin at the Ggreat Ggin Ffestival at Copenhagen Airport this summer.
There are three more gins in the Tranquebar range: Tranquebar Colonial Gin, Tranquebar 400th Anniversary Gin, and Tranquebar Christmas Spiced Gin.
