Up-and-coming American spirits brand Gothic Gin has landed a major contract with globally renowned distributor Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits.
The contemporary-style gin, which is inspired by balmy nights in Barcelona, Spain, will initially go on sale in South Carolina with plans to launch in more states should it be well received.
Scoring a listing with Southern Glazer, which has a presence in 44 US states, the District of Columbia and Canada, is a major milestone for Gothic Gin and could vastly accelerate its expansion in its home country and beyond.
The gin has already won international plaudits: it was named the United States country winner in the Contemporary Gin category at the World Gin Awards 2019 and 2020, and is the Australian Gin Society’s ‘Gin of the Month’ for October 2020.
Gothic Gin founder and avid traveller Chris Klug studied viticulture, brewing and distillation before deciding to try and make his own gin. The idea for his brand was born in the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona, where he began studying gin making and eventually perfected his recipe.
Recently Chris has been exploring uses for his gin in mixology, and has published a number of recipes which showcase his spirit.
