Barrington Coast distillery wins Silver for gin in prestigious competition!
The Farmer’s Wife Distillery at Allworth has won a silver medal at the London Spirits Competition 2019.
The London Spirits Competition confirms gin’s ascendancy across the world and the diversity of products and innovation. This is one of the world’s leading spirits competitions and assesses quality, packaging and value.
Only two Australian gins were awarded Gold, both equal with 90 points: Four Pillars Rare Dry Gin and Seppeltsfield Road House Gin.
There were six Australian gins awarded Silver and The Farmer’s Wife Autumn Dry Gin topped the list with 84 points. That makes it the second highest rating of all the Australian gins submitted for the awards…. Big congratulations to Kylie & Gavin Sepos!
The Farmer’s Wife Autumn Dry Gin – Tasting Notes:
On the nose you are greeted with the distinct aroma of juniper softened by the sweet scent of pink grapefruit and a lingering hint of honey.
When sipped the distinct punchy juniper notes are first and are layered with citrus from the lemon myrtle, zesty kaffir lime and grapefruit.
This is quickly followed by a savoury warmth (not heat) to the palate from the cardamom, pepper berry & native sage.
The angelica, orris root and liquorice provide an earthy balanced undertone but it is that gorgeous grapefruit and honey that lingers on the palate and leaves you with the feeling and colours of autumn.
