About me

I’m Sarah Miller, a freelance spirits writer, judge & consultant.


I’ve always been partial to a G&T but back in the day that meant a Gordon’s & Schweppes. Or perhaps a Bombay Sapphire or Tanqueray. I drank the gins that were readily available in bars, supermarkets and my parents’ booze cabinet. Two fortuitous moments changed all that: In the summer of 2014 I won tickets to Gin Journey‘s London Gin Experience and learnt about the history of gin at Beefeater and about the craft gin renaissance at Sipsmith. Then in the summer of 2015 I won 10 bottles of premium gin from 31 Dover. There was no looking back….

More recently I’ve been honoured to judge for Craft Distilling Expo’s Gin of the Year (2017 & 2018), the World Gin Awards (2018-2023), The Gin Guide Awards (2020-2023), the International Wine and Spirit Competition (2020-2023), The Global Spirits Masters (2021-2023), The Spirits Business Awards (2022), Craft Distilling Expo’s RTD of the Year (2022)
and the American Distilling Institute International Spirits Competition (2023).

I’m also delighted to have joined International Drinks Specialists as an Associate Specialist, and honoured to write for Gin Magazine, Spirits Beacon, Club Oenologique, IWSC and Burum Collective. You can find all my freelance writing here.

I was also over the moon to be shortlisted for IWSC’s Emerging Talent in Spirits Communication award in both 2022 and 2023.
