About 1.000 spirits from all over the world competed against each other at the ISW Meininger International Spirits Award to win the coveted title “Spirit of the Year“.
The internationally renowned prize in the category “Gin“ goes to Germany to a small family distillery from the Black Forest. The BOAR distillery from Bad Peterstal prevailed with its BOAR Gin against all major world brands. BOAR Gin was awarded “Gin of the Year 2019“ and received “Best Gin”Great Gold”.
For the first time this prize goes to the region with the highest burner density in Europe. Within a radius of only 15 km there are more than 1,000 large and small distilleries. It can therefore be considered a surprise that one of the smallest distilleries wins this internationally renowned prize.
For the jury of 67 experts, typicity, naturalness and aromatic balance were the decisive factors. Raw materials, production and storage are free of defects and have been given top marks.
The traditional distillery at its Schwarzwaldhof treads new paths in taste and quality in the production of fine distillates. She refines and harmonises her BOAR Gin with the mineral-rich mountain spring water from her own spring and the rare Black Forest truffle. This worldwide unique manufacturing process gives this London Dry Gin a mild-complex flavour profile and an extraordinary identity.
