2023 has been a stellar year already for awards, with more fantastic news coming through from one of the biggest international competitions, the San Francisco World Spirits Competition (SFWSC). 78 Degrees Sunset Gin, Classic Gin and more all received high praise and recognition.
The SFWSC is known by distillers worldwide as being one of the most prestigious competitions of its type, and it’s certainly one of the ones that we really strive to be recognised at. This comp is noted for the quality of its judges, many of whom are renowned experts in their fields, with decades of industry experience. It’s also renowned for the scope of different spirit categories that it judges.
Competing against thousands of distilleries from all over the world, we are thrilled to announce that we received no less than eight medals overall. This included Double Gold Medals for 78 Degrees Sunset Gin and Classic Gin, as well as Gold Medals for Desert Gin and Bitter Orange.
These are fantastic results for our dedicated team. Distiller & Operations Manager Tim Gniel commented:
“78 Degrees Sunset Gin also won a double gold and ‘best in category’ at the SFWSC in 2022, so it’s great to see our products consistently rewarded year after year. This year’s SFWSC results confirm that our spirits are considered some of the best in the world, and we’re incredibly proud to represent Australia on an international level.”
