New Product Launches
New Zealand’s Broken Heart Gin may be appearing state side very soon.
Waterloo Antique, an aged version of Waterloo gin is now for sale from Treaty Oak Distilling Co.
If you’re in Seattle, Tilth Restaurant has created their own Tilth Gin in partnership with Bluewater Distilling. The tasting notes: “pine and saltwater,” have got me REALLY interesting in hunting this one down. Added bonus that it’s made with Bluewater.
And in a “you’ve got to see it to believe it category,” Gin and Tonic popcorn. Really.
Awards From the Field
Congrats to Ford’s Gin who won the prestigious Best New Product Award at this years Tales of the Cocktail Spirited Awards.
The International Wine and Spirit Competition only gave out a huge amount of medals to gin this year [go to this link and do a search for gin if you want to see the whole list….]. In brief, a couple of the Gold Winners were: Adnams Copper House Distilled Gin, No 3. London Dry Gin, Gibson’s London Dry and Bathtub Gin from Master of Malt. The list of silver medals among the various categories is actually quite diverse with a couple new names like Canada’s Ungava and rare overseas brands like Muhlvierteler from Austria getting some well deserved credit.
