The Gin Guild, the not-for-profit international gin industry body, has denounced spirits producers who describe low or non-alcohol products as ‘gin’ for “freeloading” on the success of the category.

Red Storm and Ocean Storm have been withdrawn from the market after The Gin Guild threatened legal action against the producer for incorrectly labelling them as “gin”.
