2018 IWSC results for Australian gin

We’ve already celebrated our Australian gins’ success at the San Francisco World Spirits awards and the Spirit Business Spirits Masters, but now we turn out attention to the results of the International Wine and Spirits Competition (IWSC), which were announced this week.

The IWSC is the oldest of the spirits competitions, and highly regarded due to its strict judging and testing of all the spirits entered. For Australian distillers to win a medal on gin’s home soil, makes it all the more special!

You’ll see that gins are judged by strength and style (contemporary or London Dry) as well as how it performs in a Gin and Tonic (VERY important!)

Last year,  Philip Moore became the first Australian distiller to claim a Gold medal for his eponymous dry gin. The 2018 IWSC results for Australian gins are outstanding, with 4 gins receiving gold medals and the total medal haul jumping from 23 medals to 44! Some of newest additions to the Australian gin category won medals, barely a few months after launching.

Congratulations one and all!
