The Asian Spirits Masters competition, organized by The Spirits Business, took place in early April this year. The event aims to identify and honor the most exceptional Asian spirits brands worldwide.

Led by The Spirits Business and a panel of spirits experts, the competition involved blind tastings to determine the Asian Spirits Masters of 2023. Within every category, deserving spirits received Silver, Gold and Master Medals. The Master winners will then undergo an evaluation to determine the ultimate title holder of Asian Spirits Taste Master for the year 2023.

As with all competitions, we here at Gin Raiders believe that consumers should still consider seeking reviews from tough critics than solely relying on awards. Nevertheless, here are the best gins made in Asia, according to the Asian Spirits Masters 2023 Competition.
