KOVAL Dry Gin
KOVAL is proud to announce that their latest release, KOVAL Dry Gin, was awarded with a Double Gold Medal (for spirit and packaging) at the 2015 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. The highly regarded international competition, now in its 15th year, was conducted in Downtown San Francisco and saw more entries than ever before—over 1,500 spirits were judged over the course of the weekend.
With a base of their award-winning white whiskey, KOVAL Dry Gin adds flavours from grains of paradise, rose hip, juniper, angelica root, and coriander. The recipe makes it crisp enough to be enjoyed straight and complex enough for classic and contemporary cocktails. The attention to detail that KOVAL’s grain-to-bottle process allows shines through in the final product. At 47% ABV, this gin offers a higher alcohol content than others found on the market.
KOVAL Distillery is Chicago’s first distillery since Prohibition, making small batch, hand crafted whiskeys and spirits. The husband and wife team behind KOVAL are also the craft spirit movement’s leading consultants, having educated over 2000 people in the art of distilling and the craft industry, and have helped set up over 60 distilleries from the ground up in the US and Canada
Since its release in late 2014, KOVAL Dry Gin has been recognised internationally and noted in a wide range of publications from Monocleto Entertainment Weekly to Chicago Magazine. Earlier this year, KOVAL Dry Gin was a recipient of the Graphic Design USA American Package Design Competition, both for the 750ml and 200ml bottles.
“We’re thrilled by the response to the Dry Gin thus far and are looking forward to its international expansion in the coming months,” said KOVAL Co-Founder and President, Sonat Birnecker Hart.
“The gin category at SF World has grown significantly in the last few years, giving it a much more competitive landscape.” said Robert Birnecker, CEO and Master Distiller at KOVAL. “We’re extremely proud to be recognized by such a prestigious judging panel.”
KOVAL is available with Identity Drinks Brands in the UK.
