Local Dryad Gin now a Gold Medal Winner in its first year

Friday 20th October, 2023

Exciting news! Local Dryad Gin has just been awarded a prestigious gold medal in its first year of operation, gaining global recognition since its launch. Out of 22,383 spirits from 57 countries, only 23 gins received a gold medal, and Dryad Gin is the only gin selected from the UK.

This phenomenal achievement was made possible through participation in The Spirits Selection by Concours Mondial de Bruxelles, the leading international event honouring spirit drinks worldwide. An independent panel of renowned experts from across the globe meticulously evaluated the entries and bestowed medals upon the best. What makes this competition unique is that the judges never see the bottles, ensuring anonymity and fairness throughout the process.

Becky Wright, distiller, expresses her astonishment and gratitude, saying, “Wow, I can’t believe how well we have done. I’m literally holding a gold medal; it’s amazing. We would like to thank every person who has supported us and purchased our Dryad gin over the last year. With this recognition, we hope to reach an even larger audience and continue our growth.”
