Cheshire Gin Crowned Best In The Country


Exquisite Citrus Gin awarded best in the country

Last night, Three Wrens Distillery’s Exquisite Citrus Gin became the best in the country , as it cemented the award for England’s Best Gin in the signature botanical category at The World Gin Awards in London.

The independent distillery, founded just three years ago by veteran distiller Nick Wadeson from a small woodland premises, has since upsized and is now operating from a large distillery and gin school in the Cheshire countryside. Three Wrens started out by crafting hand-distilled, home-grown gins opposite Cholmondeley castle, and now reside a few miles away on the edge of the Combermere Estate. With a background in mixology, Nick soon began exploring new and unique flavours which helped him to create over 10 unique award-winning flavoured gins, including the extremely popular Bison Grass and Apple Crumble flavours.

It was the Exquisite Citrus Gin – launched less than a year ago – that took home this prestigious award for 2023 though. Presented in a stunning translucent yellow bottle, the gin’s expression features the rare Jara lemon, alongside Italian Bergamot, Kumquat, Pomelo & Shikuwasa. It is best served with Mediterranean Tonic or in a ‘white lady’ cocktail.

Nick Wadeson, Founder of Three Wrens commented; “It feels amazing to say we are distillers of the best gin in the country and I am absolutely elated after being invited to attend the grand final in London last night. To even be considered amongst the world’s best is a huge honour. Knowing we came from small beginnings in Cheshire and are now known all over the globe is a feeling like no other. I am so proud of my team – they really are the pride of the region.”

The England’s Best Gin award is added to Three Wrens’ fast-expanding trophy cabinet. Only recently has the company taken home prizes including Cheshire’s Drink Producer of the Year and the Golden Fork at the prestigious Great Taste Awards.

The World Gin Awards is a global affair, selecting the very best in all internationally recognised styles of drinks. Judges select, reward, and promote the world’s best drinks to consumers and trade across the globe.

Three Wrens distillery is located at Juniper House in the Park View Business Centre where visitors can enjoy a gin tasting tour or distilling experience. Or, simply just purchase a bottle from the distillery’s on-site bar and shop.
