Brockmans Gin Brings Home Double Gold at the WSWA ConventionApril 24, 2014 By: Nightclub & Bar
Just two months following its introduction to the U.S. market, Brockmans Gin, an ultra-premium, new style gin, is already making waves in the industry. At the 71st Annual Wine & Spirits Wholesalers of America (WSWA) Convention and Exposition Brockmans Gin was awarded Double Gold during the Spirits Tasting Competition. The Double Gold award is one of the highest honors bestowed upon competitors, with only four gins earning the title this year, and Brockmans being the only new-style gin to don the medal.
“Our success in Spain and the U.K. led us to consider expansion into the States, and gaining recognition from such a highly-regarded institution as the WSWA is an attestation that we’ve made the right move,” remarked Bob Fowkes Director and Co-Founder of Brockmans Gin. “This is a big win for us and we are honored to have been recognized in such a way.”
The Spirits Tasting Competition at WSWA is sponsored by The Tasting Panel magazine and was scored by a panel of judges in the trade ranging from bartenders to bar managers, owners and buyers. The award was given during the 71st Annual WSWA Convention, held last week in Las Vegas. The event draws hundreds of industry veterans and newcomers from across the world and supports the entry and growth of new and emerging beverage alcohol brands in the U.S. market.
Brockmans is made with the highest quality ingredients such as angelica, coriander from Bulgaria and juniper berries sourced from Tuscany. Hand selected, this unique combination of botanicals is steeped in pure grain spirit for up to 24 hours to release their flavors. After steeping, Brockmans is distilled in a traditional copper still. Traditional gin aromas of juniper and angelica marry with the refreshing citrus flavors and the rounder top notes of blueberry and blackberry, to give the gin its refreshingly different signature taste.
