Chief Distiller Nick Pesudovs celebrates Ichika Gin's Silver Medal win.

In a remarkable showing at the globally recognised London Spirits Competition, South Burnett Distillers proudly announces its acquisition of a coveted silver medal for its signature Ichika Gin.

This achievement places the small-batch distillery on the map for the second consecutive year, underscoring its commitment to producing premium spirits.

Originating from South East Queensland's fertile lands, South Burnett Distillers has once again demonstrated its prowess in the spirit industry. Ichika Gin, lauded for its delicate Japanese and East Asian inspirations, stood out among competitors for its unique grape-to-glass ethos and compelling flavour profile.

Nick Pesudovs, the maestro behind South Burnett Distillers and head winemaker at Clovely Estate, expressed his elation over the distillery's ongoing success on the international stage.

"Receiving recognition for the second year in a row at the London Spirits Competition is not just an honour; it's a testament to our dedicated pursuit of distilling excellence." stated Pesudovs.

"Our Ichika Gin, with its distinctive blend of botanicals and nuanced flavours, epitomises our innovative approach to spirit-making."

Pesudovs’ meticulous distillation process transforms local wine into a nuanced base spirit, setting South Burnett Distillers apart from its contemporaries. This artisanal approach results in a gin that not only captivates with its modernity and depth but also captures the essence of its Australian roots.

The 2024 London Spirits Competition hosted 520 gin entries from 80 countries. Esteemed judges from the UK's beverage sector meticulously evaluated each spirit on the merits of quality, value, and presentation.

“From our inception 36 months ago to being recognised on this significant platform, our journey has been nothing short of extraordinary. This accolade affirms our hard work and positions not only our distillery but also the South Burnett region, as a notable destination on the world's spirits map.” Pesudovs said

In light of this triumph, South Burnett Distillers is eager to further develop its distinguished range of grape-to-glass spirits. Visitors are encouraged to experience the full array of signature gins at the Clovely Estate Cellar Door or explore the collection online.
