FORT WORTH, TEXAS, March 28, 2019 — Acre Distilling wins a Double Gold and Silver medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition (SFWSC). Acre Distilling’s Two Minnies Gin is crafted with botanicals sourced from around the globe, including Italian juniper berries, French lavender, Jamaican allspice, Guatemalan cardamom, and Indian fennel. The botanicals are brought to the Fort Worth facility to be distilled into a bright, refreshing juniper and lavender-forward London Dry-style gin. The prestigious Double Gold distinction is awarded when all the members of the SFWSC judging panel give a Gold medal rating to a spirit. The gin also received a silver medal at the Los Angeles International Spirits Competition in 2017.
SFWSC 2019 awards a Silver medal for Acre Distilling’s newly released Texas Single Malt Whisky. This spirit begins from barley grown and harvested in Hillsboro, Texas. The barley is malted and milled at Fort Worth’s Texmalt and immediately transported to Acre Distilling. At Acre’s downtown Fort Worth distillery, the product is then mashed, fermented, distilled, and aged in new charred American white oak barrels. This smooth sipping Single Malt is 100 proof and 100% Texan from grain to glass.
