Awards Season



Red carpet, paparazzi, outrageous outfits, tearful acceptance speeches...

this can only mean one thing. It's awards season!

Aranami Strength wins Gold and Best Navy Strength at spirits awards.


Best Navy Strength Gin 2020


I'm proud to say that I have a few announcements of my own. Hidden Curiosities Aranami Navy Strength Gin has just been named the Best Navy Strength Gin in England at the World Gin Awards! Whilst this is wonderful news in itself, this also means it's entered into the running for the best gin in the WORLD later this month.


And as if that wasn't enough of an honour, renowned gin blogger The Gin Lord has also named Aranami Navy Strength his Gin of the Year for 2019, beating 15 other big names in the gin world!

Aranami Strength Gin was up against 15 other top gin distilleries from around the world.

Gin of the Year 2019


The Gin Lord says, "After thousands of comments and messages...sleepless nights...creative pictures...blind taste testing and consulting my fellow Gin Pals - the decision has finally been made...


"Congratulations Hidden Curiosities Gin - Aranami Strength Gin has taken the top spot for my Gin of the Year 2019. Without doubt the toughest year yet! This 59% abv beauty ticks so many boxes. Huge depth of interesting (and new) flavours! Certainly one of the finest gins I have ever tasted."

Women's Wine & Spirits Awards


But I'm not finished! To complete the hat-trick, my Aranami Strength has also been awarded a Gold Medal at the Women's Wine & Spirits Awards 2020! I'm bowled over, and very honoured to even be among such esteemed company, so to top the list is a feeling beyond words. We're very proud of our recipe for this one, and so pleased that people love Aranami Navy Strength as much as I do.

Not Forgetting...


Even better, this is not the only talented child in the family. Hidden Curiosities London Dry Gin took home a Silver Medal at the Women's Wine & Spirit Awards 2020, and a Bronze Medal at the World Gin Awards 2020! Add this to the Great Taste Award from 2018, the the mantelpiece can barely take the weight!

I'm so happy that people appreciate everything that's gone into these creations, and most importantly, that people enjoy drinking Hidden Curiosities gins. Thank you so much to everyone for the kind words, and for supporting women in the industry. An Aranami Dry Martini it is! Here's to 2020!
