Spanish spirits and fortified wines stood out in the Annual Brands Report published by Drinks International. This highly prestigious report, one of the sector’s most important, features a beverage ranking based on votes from the locales included in the World’s 100 Best Bars ranking and the bartenders there, who are considered industry experts.

Gin Mare was a standout once again, taking home honors in two of the most important rankings within that report and was included among the Best Selling Gins (7th) and Top Trending Gins (6th). This is a major milestone considering that Gin Mare is an independent Spanish brand.
