Adelaide Hills Distillery secured multiple wins at the 2018 San Francisco Spirits Awards, with a Double Gold for ‘The Italian’ – Australian Aperitif, Gold Award for Something Wild Beverages Collaboration, Green Ant Gin; and a Silver for 78 Degrees gin.
The awards are only a glimpse at the ongoing commitment the business has made to deliver unique quality experiences in the craft spirits world while showcasing its dedication to environment and customers alike.
From this commitment, Adelaide Hills Distillery has been on a journey to bring one of the world’s most unique spirit experiences to its customers through the construction of a purpose-built distillery and ‘distillery’ door (cellar door) based in the Adelaide Hills. The goal for this was simple in concept: build one of the world’s most environmental and sustainable facilities whilst pursuing and increasing the quality of its beverages.
“The construction and commissioning of this world class facility allows Adelaide Hills Distillery to continue to grow while balancing higher production volumes with consistent quality and reducing our impact on the environment. We are now well poised to deliver our award-winning spirits in Australia and overseas,” said Sacha La Forgia.
AHD are celebrating this achievement of launching the distillery with the release of new bottles and packaging. Part of this fresh new packaging is to further cement our Australian identity. Gunnery will now be known as ‘Gunnery Australian Spiced’ highlighting it core of unique Australian spices.
The distillery will also make the contentious move to drop the name ‘The Italian’ from its San Francisco Spirit Awards winning “Best Aperitif”. This has been renamed ‘Bitter Orange – Australian Aperitif’ to ensure its consumers understand the quality and depth of Australian ingredients that are mindfully sourced to sustainably make this award-winning liqueur.
