Distillery Botanica Gin wins gold

The premium Australian artisan gin has been awarded a gold medal at the prestigious San Francisco World Spirit Competition 2016.

The award has catapulted Distillery Botanica to a place alongside the world’s most elite brands, from the humble origins of a garden distillery in Erina on the Central Coast of NSW.

Since its inception in 2000, the San Francisco World Spirits Competition has become the most respected and influential spirits competition in the world, identifying spirit excellence. The competition saw 39 spirits experts sample hundreds of short-listed spirits in a rigorous judging process of blind tastings across four days.

“With Distillery Botanica Gin I was attempting to create a gin which captured the beauty of the garden here, but was still unmistakably a juniper-led gin,” the award-winning master distiller behind Distillery Botanica Gin Philip Moore said. “It’s wonderful to receive recognition internationally for our locally garden-grown gin.”

Distillery Botanica Gin, distributed nationally by Noble Spirits, takes its inspiration from an Australian summer garden, with botanicals hand picked and distilled on the same estate. Mr Moore produces the boutique gin using the increasingly rare process of ‘enfleurage’, a thousand-year-old French technique favoured by perfumers, which extracts untainted perfume from the quintessentially Australian Murraya flower, to create its distinct flavour. The gin is also complemented with cues of jasmine, honeysuckle and orange blossom.
