Mediterranean Gold

Dune Distilling is thrilled to announce that their Mediterranean Gin has been awarded a prestigious Gold Medal at the International Wine & Spirits Competition (IWSC) held in London. Achieving an impressive score of 97/100, this accolade marks Dune's second IWSC Gold Medal, following the success of their Signature Gin on previous editions.

This score not only places Dune Distilling's Mediterranean Gin among the elite but also signifies the third highest score obtained by an Australian spirit this year and the highest score ever achieved by a Western Australian distillery in this competition. This award follows a successful streak for Dune Distilling, who also secured a Gold Medal for their Limoncello Liqueur at the Melbourne Royal Spirits Awards in 2023.

The IWSC is renowned for recognizing excellence in the production of wines and spirits worldwide. Competing against a distinguished field, Dune Distilling's Mediterranean Gin was lauded by the judging panel as "An inviting bouquet of menthol and delicate spice, with a refreshing lime zing. The palate is beautifully balanced, smooth, and rich with nutty undertones, while the finish is fabulously elegant, leaving a rich, satisfying sensation. Exceptional."

Crafted by head distiller Shannon Grigg, the Mediterranean Gin epitomizes the ethos of Dune Distilling. Co-owner Kristin Kestell explains, "Using local botanicals to make products we are passionate about and to produce spirits we want to enjoy. We don't make products to fit the market; we are all about making the best product we can and letting the quality of that product tell our story."

"Shannon's style focuses on a few key botanicals, rather than overloading the bouquet and palate with too many flavour profiles. In Dune's Mediterranean Gin, those botanicals include locally harvested oranges and thyme, along with cardamom, traditionally found in the Mediterranean region but also thriving in our West Australian climate."

"We are incredibly proud to receive this honour for our Mediterranean Gin," added Kestell. "It is a testament to Shannon's expertise and his talent for creating distinctive, well-balanced spirits."
