2018 Australian Distilled Spirits Awards - Unlisted Spirit (not in any other class) (Alternative Spirits)

Bronze Medal - Orange

Castle Glen Distillery’s Orange Spirit is made by fermenting and distilling Australian Oranges. The Orange Spirit is crisp, clean and balanced, offering bright orange notes from Australian sun-kissed oranges. The Orange Spirit lingers long on the palate with a smooth sweet finish. The Orange Spirit is delicate and floral, appealing to cocktail connoisseurs with discerning palates.

Following the success of the Royal Melbourne Fine Food Awards’ distilled spirits and liqueurs award, the RASV has created a stand-alone event to provide Australian producers of distilled spirits and liqueurs, with an essential benchmarking opportunity, to celebrate the excellence of Australian distillation and spirits making and give Australian spirits producers the opportunity to promote their spirits and liqueurs to industry and consumers.

The awards recognises the long tradition of distillation in Australia as well as the new generation of spirits and liqueur producers who have emerged over the last decade. Created in close consultation with industry experts, the new awards are reflective of an increased consumer interest and market trends and highlights the innovation and excellence demonstrated by Australian distillers.
