High-flying Premium Irish Spirit range touches down for TFWA following a string of international successes
The Wild Geese® Collection of premium spirits has taken flight and this week lands with a splash in Singapore for the TFWA (Tax Free World Association) Asia Pacific Exhibition & Conference in Singapore (May 10-14).
The Wild Geese® Collection, which has exhibited at TFWA for each of the last 14 years, arrives at this year’s conference hot on the heels of its most successful period of global recognition. In recent months alone, the Collection has amassed a number of prestigious accolades and medals for its spirits, including its rum, vodka and honey liqueur.
Already this year, The Wild Geese® Collection has been awarded “World’s Best Gold Rum’ at the World Rum Awards 2015; Gold medal (Wild Geese® Golden Rum) at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2015; silver medals (2) for its Untamed® Irish Vodka at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2015 and the International Spirits Challenge 2015 respectively; silver medals (2) for its Exiles® Irish Gin (Note: the only gin in the world with shamrock) at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2015 and International Spirits Challenge 2015 respectively; and bronze medals (2) for its Wild Geese® Irish Honey Liqueur at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2015 and International Spirits Challenge 2015 respectively.
These awards complement The Wild Geese® Irish Whiskey’s status as a three-time voted ‘Best Irish Whiskey’ product, and a recipient of Gold medals from WSWA 2013, Rum Renaissance 2013 and Beverage Testing institute 2013; Silver medals from WSWA Tasting 2013, IWSC 2013 and a Bronze medal from the International Spirits Challenge 2013. Furthermore, The Beverage Tasting Institute has provided two ratings of ‘Exceptional’ plus one of ‘Best Value for Money’ for The Wild Geese® Rum Collection.
Speaking on the eve of TFWA, André Levy, Chairman of Protégé International (exclusive global distributor of The Wild Geese® Collection), said: “The Wild Geese® Collection is unique, being the only premium and super-premium collection of Irish spirits in the market – as such, it fits the profile of Singapore and the wider region. Premium spirits is a growing category internationally and, as such, our participation in TFWA is particularly timely. We are brimming with confidence at the moment and look forward to a successful TFWA.”
