The Bartender Spirits Awards are unique in that brands are judged by a panel of the world’s best bartenders, spirits buyers and bar managers. The panel carefully tests hundreds of gins and selects just a few brands to receive gold and double gold awards based on the criteria for mixability, balance, versatility, flavor, mouthfeel and finish.

As the sole winner from Indonesia, East Indies Bali Pink Grapefruit scored a solid 96 points, and Archipelago Dy Gin scored 92, beating out big-name gins like Tanqueray 10 and Citadelle.

“The double gold is really a special accolade, this year only 4 gins have won a double gold, so it really shows that the quality of our spirits can not only compete on the world stage, but win”, says the General Manager of Spice Islands Distilling Co. Ricardo Irving.

Back-to-back and double gold medals speak volumes about the exceptional quality of East Indies Gin and the innovative craftsmanship of Spice Islands Distilling Co. in showcasing exceptionally exotic Indonesian botanicals.

We are huge lovers of this gin, and it also makes the perfect Balinese gift to take home after your holidays!

Congratulations to the East Indies team for putting the spirits of Indonesia on the world stage.
