London, capital of the gintónic, has hosted the ‘World Gin Awards’, the most prestigious championship on the planet that evaluates and rewards the quality of the best gins from around the world.
The company Distillates of Spain, based in Zarza de Granadilla (Cáceres), has won the title of best gin in Spain with its two varieties: Spirito Vetton Extra Dry, in the ‘Contemporary’ category; and Spirito Vetton Extra Cherry in the ‘Flavored’ category.
The tasting and decision of the jury took place at the Caledonian Club in the city of London, where judges and organizers of the event evaluated during different days elixirs from all corners of the globe.
“An award of this magnitude represents a tremendous pride for our company, especially for the recognition of our tireless work to achieve innovation and excellence. Thanks to this we have created two unique gins that are already beginning to be consumed not only in Spain, but also in international markets, ”says Alfonso Vallejo, general director of the company.
The positioning of a gin of Spanish origin as one of the best in the world is a turning point for a sector that is maturing.
“Recently, national gins were not so valued abroad; however, Spirito Vetton can already be found in the best restaurants, hotels and delicatessens in our area, and it is also possible to buy it anywhere in Europe. ”
ONLY GENEVA AND BEER

It has references in its catalog that have achieved awards and recognition both nationally and worldwide, and currently exports its products to three of the five continents.
From the eagerness and ambition of this young industry for the research and development of the best distilled beverages, Spirito Vetton is born, a name that arises in homage to the pre-Roman inhabitants of Celtic culture who settled in the area currently known as Tierras de Granadilla, whose Civilization was characterized by its warrior and fighter character.
For its elaboration, a delicate selection of plants is used, among which rosemary and basil, symbols of the Iberian Peninsula. Spirito Vetton gin is distilled five times by hand, with the intention of obtaining maximum purity.
Spirito Vetton is presented in a bottle of slender lines and trapezoidal plant, with wide shoulders, fine and transparent glass that allows you to see its contents perfectly. Its capacity is 70 centiliters.
