Sipping Success: The Prestigious Awards Behind Our Gins

Sipping Success: The Prestigious Awards Behind Our Gins

Torbay Gin has gone from strength to strength over the past few years and this growth can be demonstrated through our impressive credentials. Two of our gins - our signature Devon Dry Gin and our Aurantiaco Gin were both been recognised as industry leaders in the South West and beyond in 2023. We’re proud to share some of the impressive awards we have picked up recently.

Torbay Devon Dry Gin

IWSC Gold 2023

In 2023, we were proudly presented with Gold in the Gin and Tonic category at the International Wine and Spirits Competition. It was described by world-renowned judges as having herbaceous and earthy spices, citrus on the nose and palate with a smooth mouthfeel. We proudly state that we were the only winners in this category in the UK, and amongst only 6 winners in the world!

Food Drink Devon Gold 2022/23

We are amongst a host of fellow Devon-Based businesses to win Gold in the Food Drink Devon Awards. These awards celebrate the very best that Devon has to offer and recognise the most passionate food and drinks producers in the South West. 

Taste of the West Gold 2023

Our Devon Dry Gin also won Gold at the Taste of the West Awards in 2023. They have been promoting and supporting the South West Food and Drink industry for over 30 years, and to be part of one of the most prestigious award programmes in the South West is a huge achievement.

Torbay Aurantiaco Gin

The Gin Guide Awards 2023

Aurantiaco was a Winner in the Contemporary Category at The Gin Guide Awards in 2023. The Gin Guide received hundreds of entrants from over 35 countries so this is something we’re very proud of love to shout about.

IWSC Bronze 2023

Described as having ‘zest and pine aromas with smooth orris on the palate and a rich texture’, Aurantiaco won bronze at the IWSC in 2023. To have two of our gins recognised internationally demonstrates our unwavering and consistent commitment to quality in our gins.

Taste of the West Gold 2023

Having two gins to be recognised as leaders in the South West is one of our proudest achievements. We have worked hard to establish ourselves as one of the best and we love what we do so we love that this has paid off. 

We love the success we had in 2023 and it is a testament to the hard work and passion we pour into every bottle of gin. We can’t wait to see what 2024 and beyond has in store for us!
