Tarquin’s Cornish Gin & Pastis win medals at World Spirits Competition

  • April 24, 2014

award-winning-tarquins-gin-pastisWe are thrilled to be the proud owners of a SILVER and GOLD medal, won at the World Spirits Competition 2014. Tarquin’s Cornish Gin won a silver medal and Tarquin’s Cornish Pastis won a gold!

This international competition was held in San Francisco, a long way from our distillery in north Cornwall. No less than 39 expert judges blindly tasted our spirits with their finely tuned palates.

These medals mean that Tarquin’s Cornish Gin and Pastis have been ranked as some of the finest spirits in the world.

Tarquin’s Cornish Gin even scored above local rival Plymouth Gin (bronze) and the international heavyweight Hendrick’s (bronze). A brilliant feat for us in our first year of trading. Not bad for Cornwall’s first gin and the UK’s first pastis.

We are looking to the future now. And it is looking exciting! Check out our stockists if you would like to sample our award winning spirits for yourself.
