Local gin wins in Hong Kong

Tasmania's Dasher + Fisher Mountain Gin has collected a trophy and gold medal at Hong Kong's 2017 Cathay Pacific Hong Kong International Wine and Spirit Competition. The Devonport-made tipple was judged the international event's Best London Dry Gin. Southern Wild Distillery owner George Burgess posted on Facebook: “We are beyond thrilled with the announcement that the industry’s most highly respected competition has announced us as the winner of the best gin category, and we are bursting at the seams with pride. Even more overwhelming is that there were 247 per cent more gin entries this year compared to last year." The Tasmanian gin label is only one year old, but it also collected a silver medal in the contemporary style gin category for its Dasher + Fisher Ocean Gin and a bronze in the same category for its Dasher + Fisher Meadow Gin. Mr Burgess, a converted food scientist, recently launched new gins flavoured with damson plums and sloe berries.
