We are very excited to say that one year after we were awarded a gold medal at the Sip Awards in California we have now won a silver medal for our Hand-Crafted London Dry at the International Wine & Spirits Competition. This year we were judged alongside 800 other gin producers, where Penrhos was put into the London dry category.
A London Dry is the technical term for gins which start with a neutral base spirit and have included all their botanicals in the distillation phase of the production. IWSC Judges in this category were looking for a well-balanced level of botanicals to support the star of the show, the juniper. Our London Dry is distilled with our own Blueberries, Cherry Blossom and Honey and was award 91 points, therefore, handing us a silver medal.
We are extremely pleased to be winning this award as we are thrilled with our London Dry which is also the base to our Rhubarb, Apple and Elderflower Gin and our Blueberry Liqueur. It’ is a real stamp of approval from the industry, and we’re very humbled to have Penrhos Spirits recognised in this way. Like many, we have had to adapt and change this year and it’s brilliant to be able to celebrate and cherish the little moments of happiness with an award like this.”
Our London Dry is especially smooth, fresh and pure. We recommend serving 50ml of Penrhos Dry Gin over plenty of ice with tonic, blueberries and mint. Or to try something different, 50ml London Dry, Elderflower Tonic with sliced strawberries, cucumber and mint. Enjoy!
