The South African competition sees hundreds of entries from producers as far afield as the Americas, the Middle East, Scandinavia, and Europe, as well as an exceptional local showing. Launched in 2019, the Old Mutual Trophy Spirits Show is fast becoming a platform to showcase the world’s best spirits, among some of the toughest distilling competition.

This year, KWV won a total of 5 medals and 3 trophies at the show, winning a gold medal with it’s KWV Cruxland London Dry Gin infused with Kalahari Truffles, which scored 97.

The awards are yet another testament to the consistent quality produced by the South African distillery. The distillery has repeatedly brought home accolades, both locally and abroad, and most recently won four gold medals at the prestigious 2021 World Spirits Awards.

“KWV has become known for award-winning spirits, and our remarkable quality was once again highlighted at the Old Mutual Trophy Spirits Show.
