Five gin companies in the north-east will represent the region at a national awards ceremony taking place later this year.
A total of 46 producers and 80 gins distilled across Scotland have progressed to the finals of the national competition.
Winners will be announced on Thursday September 20 at the awards ceremony which takes place at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, Glasgow Central.
The awards honour both taste and business performance and were judged by a highly experienced judging panel consisting of some of Scotland and the UK’s most prestigious distilling and gin experts.
The wide-ranging competition covers 18 categories and the gins were judged earlier this month in two sessions.
