Irish liqueur brand The Wild Geese has won a flurry of medals at an American spirits competition for its selection of rum, honey liqueur, vodka and gin.
The brand’s golden rum was awarded a gold medal; its premium rum, Untamed Irish vodka and Exiles Irish gin all won silver awards; and its Irish honey liqueur was given a bronze medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
Now in its fifteenth year, the annual tournament “is hailed as the largest and most influential international spirits competition in the world,” the brand claimed. Earlier this month, we reported that The Wild Geese’s premium rum was among four other silver medal-winning beverages at the Global Rum Masters competition in London.
André Levy, chairman of Protégé International, which is the exclusive global distributor of the brand, said: “The Wild Geese collection continues to spread its wings and prove itself to be amongst the best of the best. The collection of premium spirits has now won dozens of awards across all of its categories and is receiving increasing recognition the world over. I am particularly proud to see our Irish premium gin (the only gin in the world featuring shamrock as an ingredient) along with our vodka and honey liqueur all gain such global success since being launched only five months ago.”
