IWSC 2019 Awards – Pienaar & Son Distilling Co.
We are proud to report that the first Craft distillery supplied by Logichem is continuing to produce internationally award-winning products. André Pienaar, Master Distiller of Pienaar & Son Distilling Co. in Cape Town had the following to say:
“Following the Silver and Gold awards received at SA’s Michelangelo 2017 Awards for our Empire and Orient gins respectively, we decided to submit them to the prestigious 2019 International Wine and Spirits Competition in London to see if we would rate at all at this international benchmark of quality. To our huge surprise and delight, both were awarded Silver.
We also took the opportunity to submit a sample of our new make grain spirit, Sunshine, currently maturing in new American oak barrels for our future bourbon product, and it too was awarded Silver. The judges tasting notes: “Creamy and incredibly soft, with a bit of citrus zest and a dry crisp finish. This is a well-balanced and well-made spirit in a neutral and seamlessly elegant manner, with a sweet, light finish. A splendid example”.
A humbling experience for us.”
