An Australian gin has just scooped double gold at a major spirits competition

If you’re as obsessed as we are about finding the best gins in the world, then you’ll be interested in this news from across the globe.

An Australian gin has just taken double gold at the one of the world’s most respected spirits competitions.

The San Francisco World Spirit Competition is a major date in a gin distillery’s calendar with many dreaming of gold and glory. In other words, you can pretty much guarantee you’re looking at the world’s best gins.

As reported by delicious.Australia, it’s Brookie’s Gin from Cape Byron Distillery in Northern New South Wales that has taken home gold for two separate gins.

Brookie’s Byron Dry Gin and Brookie’s Byron Slow Gin took top prize from over 2,000 spirits judged this year, which is the largest number of entries the awards have ever seen.

It’s the also the first time the distillery has entered their Slow Gin for judging.

Both of the award-winning gins use native ingredients from their very own rainforest in which the distillery sits.

Brookie’s Bryon Dry Gin includes a spectacular variety of unique ingredients. Sunrise Finger Limes, Aniseed Myrtle, Cinnamon Myrtle, Macadamia, Native River Mint, Native Raspberry…

Their Slow Gin is also just as impressive. Made in the style of the traditional English ‘sloe’ gin, Davidson Plums are left to steep in the original gin for several months. The result is a gin bright with  exhilarating flavours of rose, watermelon, and bright plum.

The pair join Hernö Old Tom Gin, which was recently crowned top cat at the World Gin Awards in the gold award stakes, while September sees the Scottish Gin Awards choose their champion.

If you fancy a taste of world class tipple, Brookie’s Gin can currently be purchased online for £49.49.
