  • Local Seaweed Gin Wins Big at International Competition

    Locally based Newfoundland Distillery Company took home two major awards at the 2018 San Francisco World Spirit Competition and one co-founder says it’s thanks to their ingredients.

    Peter Wilkins is co-founder of the company. He says all of their ingredients are directly from the province.

    He says it seemed natural to use seaweed from the Grand Banks, and people seem to be loving it.

    Wilkins says they’re still trying to grasp the big win.

    He says this is supposed to be like winning the Stanley Cup or the Oscar of the Spirit Competition. They are absolutely thrilled and delighted.
