Wildbrumby Distillery has been awarded ‘Gold’ for its Peach Nectar Liqueur at the Australian International Spirits Competition (AUISC) and has also been honoured in the ‘Judges Choice’ category.
This is the second gold medal to be awarded to the Peach Nectar, which claimed gold at the 2018 Australian Distilled Spirits Awards.
AUISC is a new spirits competition for both local and international spirits which is judged on a world scale by predominantly Australian judges, to reflect local tastes in spirits.
Wildbrumby founder, Brad Spalding has developed many varieties of schnapps which have proven extremely popular among visitors to the Snowy region. Peach Nectar Schnapps is one of its classic range and has a rich succulent flavour.
“Schnapps is not a traditionally Australian spirit, but we have developed a unique twist on European schnapps, that is specially tailored to Australian taste buds,” says Spalding.
“We are delighted with the performance of our Peach Nectar Liqueur in this prestigious international competition, which was established on local soil to celebrate our nation’s discerning palate.”
Wildbrumby has been developing and refining its range of spirits for well over a decade and was the first local distiller to introduce schnapps to Australian snow sports enthusiasts.
The distillery has also previously received awards for its Classic, Rubus Patch and Stallion gin, which have each claimed ‘Gold’ at international spirits competitions in recent years.
It was also named as a leading food and drink innovator in 2017 for its schnapps range in the book Celebrating Australian Food and Agribusiness Innovations, which showcased 50 stand-out products across the entire Australian food value chain.
Wildbrumby was chosen for its focus on product experience and the personalisation of its ever-growing range of contemporary Australian spirits.
