Aval Dor Vodka, distilled in Cornwall from potatoes grown on a farm near Lostwithiel, has been awarded Double Gold at the 2020 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
The Double Gold accolade is awarded to the few entries that receive Gold medal ratings by all the members of the judging panel.
Colwith Farm Distillery owner Steve Dustow has also given the champion spirit a new look to celebrate. The distillery’s Stafford’s Dry Gin also came away with a Bronze award. It has Aval Dor as its base and seven Cornish botanicals and was launched in 2019 to mark the anniversary of the distillery’s opening.
“This is only the second year that we’ve entered the vodka distilled here by myself at our plough to bottle facility and so I’m absolutely made up to have achieved Double Gold,” says Steve. “And for Stafford’s Dry to come away with a Bronze less than a year after we launched it is fantastic news too.”
