Another Anno Award!
26/07/17 - Anno 60 Squared wins the silver medal at the 2017 International Wine and Spirits Competition!
Anno Distillers are delighted to announce that our high strength gin, 602, has been awarded a silver medal in this year’s IWSC competition. Anno 602 was judged in the contemporary style category. This is the third award for 602 as it was awarded a silver medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition earlier this year and the Specialist Drinks category at the 2016 Taste of Kent Awards. 602 now joins our Kent Dry Gin, which won gold at the 2015 San Francisco World Spirit Competition and a silvers medal from the IWSC, as an internationally recognised, multi-award winning product.
Now in its 48th year, The International Wine and Spirit Competition aim to reward and acknowledge excellence in the wine and spirits industry. Entries are made from over 80 different countries worldwide in 36 different categories.
Anno 602 was originally released as a limited edition of 1000 bottles to celebrate founders Andy and Norman's 60th birthdays. However the overwhelmingly positive response we received from consumers means that it’s here to stay.
As Anno 602 Gin was a celebratory release, we made sure that the flavour literally bursts in the mouth by combining a selection of local hops, woody botanicals, and enticing spices to give a fantastically deep over proof spirit.
Despite being 60% abv, this spirit is still delightfully smooth on the palate, yet big, bold and woody in the mouth. Enjoy the taste of 602 as the flavours of juniper, angelica root and aromatic spices unwind across your tongue before gracefully giving way to the sweet liquorice and hop after notes.
Just months after its release Anno 602 claimed the title of ‘Specialist Drinks Category Winner’ at the Taste of Kent Awards in March 2016. It’s bold flavour make it perfect for cocktails such as a negroni with a twist of orange to garnish or if you’re more traditional - to concoct the perfect G&T pour a generous helping of chilled 602 over ice, add premium Indian Tonic water, and garnish with a twist of lemon or orange and peppercorns for an added citrusy infusion.
Anno 602 is available in 70cl and 5cl bottles. Available to purchase here!
