Tempus Two Copper Series Shiraz Gin has won the Triple Still Award winning double gold at the New York World Wine and Spirits Competition, Singapore World Spirits Competition and San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
To win a double gold medal, each member of the 60-strong judging panel must award the spirit gold based on criteria including palate and quality.
Following Tempus Two’s three successive World Spirits Competition double gold wins, the drinks maker received an additional accolade as the inaugural winner of the Triple Still Award – a new award for entrants that receive double gold in all three World Spirit Competitions.
Tom Dusseldorp, Chief Marketing Officer at Australian Vintage, the parent company of Tempus Two, says that this latest recognition affirms Tempus Two’s position as a leader in premium gins.
“We launched the Tempus Two Shiraz Gin last year with big ambitions to disrupt the market. Being the first brand to be awarded the Triple Still Award is a testament to the team’s dedication and skill. Using our winemaking know-how we developed this unique, world-class, artisan spirit that sits perfectly alongside the rest of the Tempus Two premium gin range.”
The Shiraz Gin which earned the judges’ attention with its distinct characteristics of the wine varietal, was launched by Tempus Two last year, alongside the world’s first Prosecco Gin and a Wild Botanical Gin under the Copper Series gin range.
Retailing for RRP $85, the 100 per cent Shiraz Gin is made from Shiraz wine spirit and distilled with juniper berries, coriander, orange peel and Shiraz grapes.
