Wildbrumby Stallion navy strength gin claims Gold

Stallion navy strength gin claims Gold

Wildbrumby Distillery has been awarded ‘Gold’  for its Stallion navy strength gin at the Asia International Spirits Competition last week.

This follows similar successes with its Classic and Rubus Patch gins which have each claimed ‘Gold’ at the Melbourne International Spirits Competition.

The Asia International Spirits Competition brings a major international spirits event to the region, and features trade-only judges. Close to 100 entries were submitted from 15 countries around the world.

Wildbrumby is best known for introducing schnapps to the Snowy Mountains, but over the past few years, the distillery has been undergoing something of a ‘gin revolution’.

Stallion is a high spirited (57%) navy-strength gin, and a smooth and spicy addition to the expanding range of wildbrumby gin, says Wildbrumby founder, Brad Spalding.

Developed for gin connoisseurs in search of a strong, flavourful spirit, it blends juniper and native mountain pepper with black tea, ginger and orchard-grown citrus to create an exceptionally well balanced contemporary spirit.

“Subtle notes of cassia coalesce with more dominant juniper and citrus picked from the family orchard to deliver a punchy pallet of flavours,” says Wildbrumby distiller Sebastian Drüge.

“A smooth, viscous ‘oiliness’ rounds out the spicy spirit, further enhanced by the purity, alkalinity and mineral trace elements of the natural alpine spring water used in the distilling process.”
