    Another Westcountry gin I'd never heard of:
    This Devon-made gin has just been named the best in the WORLD!
    By RA_Herald | Posted: May 18, 2017

    A Devon-based gin firm is officially the best in the world.

    Salcombe Distilling Company, based in South Devon, won two awards at the San Francisco World Spirit Competition 2017, one of the most prestigious spirit events in the world.

    The company, who produce Salcombe Gin, won first place in both the World Spirit Competition and the Beverage Testing Institute awards.

    Co-founder Angus Lugsdin said: "We are ecstatic our Gin is now being recognised internationally, an incredible accolade after all the hard work of the past year.
    "Our main objective is to produce an exceptional hand crafted gin and we strive for perfection in every step of the process.
    These awards are a real testament to our ethos and hardworking team in Salcombe, Devon."

    The company, who create Salcombe Gin, beat 2,252 other spirit entries from all corners of the globe to claim first place in the World Spirit Competition. :D
    In addition, the Beverage Testing Institute in America has awarded Salcombe Gin 'Start Point' a Platinum Medal adding to their ever increasing and now international collection of awards.

    Powered by the Beverage Testing Institute, the Tastings.com International Review of Spirits is America's oldest annual international spirits competition and has been operated objectively for 24 years.
    Salcombe Gin was described as 'superlative' and was awarded the highest possible rating with a score of 96/100.

    etc...

    The Queen Mum informs me that she still prefers Gordons and Cork Dry Gin.

    Well, she would never have tried Salcombe gin, as it only went into production last year! :p

    (Unless spirits have access to spirits...:rolleyes:)

    They do! At least, the part that evaporates is known as "the angels' share!' :)

    44% proof. Not enough to prove that spirits exist, sorry.
