What is Gin?


Gin has seen a surge in popularity in recent years, with all manner of flavours and styles being introduced to the market. Gin is made from grain alcohol and to be recognised as a ‘gin’ must have  juniper berries as it’s predominant flavour and be 37.5% alcohol by volume or higher. If it doesn’t taste of juniper or is below 37.5% ABV it isn’t gin!  Other than juniper berries, you can use any number of botanicals to make the gin to your specific tastes. The process to make gin is similar to vodka, but whereas vodka is  tasteless, gin is all about the flavour! How is Copeland Irish gin different? Our Irish gin has unique flavours and scents, due to our combination of 12 wild and fair botanicals including a small flower from the nearby Copeland Islands, Sea Pink Maritima.

Copeland Irish gin is not just award winning; it is almost perfect! Scoring an Outstanding Gold award with 99/100 points, from the IWSC, International Wine & Spirit Competition, in 2022 and also won the best contemporary gin trophy. I guess that means it’s the worlds’ best gin for 2022!. Copeland gin distillery offers a range of unique and distinct gins to suit novice gin drinkers and gin connoisseurs alike.
