The ILoveGin Awards 2019 – Our Members’ Favourite Gins, Mixers and Tasting Boxes!

For each monthly G&T box, we ask our members to rate the gins and mixers they tasted, to let us know know how our selections stack up against the rest of the field. Now that we have combed through all the survey results from 2019, we can present some stats and favourites from the past year of gin drinking!

 

We ask 2 main questions for each box, featured gin, or mixer:

  1. Rate this out of 5 stars.
  2. Have you bought more, or do you intend to buy more of this?

We ranked all products by their star rating, and broke any ties by the higher percentage of people who intend to buy more. That process led us to a complete list of favourite Gins and Mixers from all our 2019 members boxes, and we’re happy to announce them below!
