We have won a Double Gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2017. We are thrilled about this: the competition is considered the Oscars of the drinks industry and the Double Gold accolade is only awarded to those entries that receive a Gold medal rating from every member of the judging panel.
This year, there was a record-breaking 2,100 entries to the overall competition, up over 25% from 2016.
We all have a little extra spring in our step at the moment, not least our head distiller Chris Garden who has said:
"We are delighted to win the double gold from one of the world’s most important spirits competition. The award is a testament to our unique triple technique which brings a new level of juniper to our gin. To celebrate I'll be back outdoors picking more green juniper, fingers crossed for sunshine."
Founded in 2000, the San Francisco World Spirits Competition has become the most respected and influential spirits competition in the world. Emphasising integrity and impartiality, an SFWSC medal has come to be the most reliable indication of excellence, and those spirits recognised as medalworthy are understood to be the best in the industry.
To celebrate our win, Nick Strangeway has created a Double Gold cocktail to mark the occasion. Find the Double Gold recipe here >
