Waiheke Distilling Co’s signature gin, the Spirit of Waiheke has won a silver medal at the 5th London Spirits Competition, which took place in London on March 23, 24 and 25, 2022. The medal is an ultimate endorsement in the global spirits industry. The Spirit of Waiheke scored highly in the three judging aspects of quality, value and packaging.
The London Spirits Competition stands apart from other spirits competitions by awarding spirits for their drinkability. Where other competitions focus solely on technical competence and distilling prowess, the London Spirits Competitions goes further to evaluate a spirit for its all-around excellence - in the way it tastes, looks and the value it provides. They believe that this golden triangle makes spirit drinkers more likely to buy and drink the spirit either from a retail store or at a bar or restaurant and want to laud this.
We are pleased that our Spirit of Waiheke gin performed so well at the competition. This silver medal demonstrates that the spirits we are making are the kind that bar managers and mixologists want to stock and spirits drinkers enjoy drinking.
