ABER FALLS FLIES FLAG FOR WALES AT INTERNATIONAL SPIRITS COMPETITION
It's award time at this year's San Francisco World Spirits Competition and Aber has won big!
What a year it has been so far with a few accolades to boot! We have just achieved five prestigious medals at this year’s San Francisco World Spirits Competition – one of the spirits industry’s most respected competitions. With multiple successes including a Gold for our new Welsh Dry Gin, a Silver for the Orange Marmalade Gin, Violet and Salted Toffee Liqueurs, and a Bronze for our Dark Chocolate & Coffee Liqueur it certainly is something to shout about.
The largest number of entries in the awards’ 17-year history with 2,200 spirits competing, judges undertook four days of blind tastings before awarding the highly sought after stamps of approval. The San Francisco World Spirits Competition logo offers members of the public a trusted and instantly recognisable guarantee of world-class quality and Aber Falls soared right to the top.
James Wright, our Managing Director of Aber Falls Distillery, commented: "These highly prized medals are a great reflection of the hard work and commitment of our distilling team. They continue to create quality and consistent spirits that have also been tried, tested and adored by our customers, so this stands us in great stead for the future.
“As newcomers to the speciality food and drink scene in North Wales, we really appreciate how highly this accolade is regarded; it spurs us on to produce more outstanding spirits.”
Welsh and very proud. We’ll drink to that!
