Singapore’s TANGLIN GIN picks up Silver Medal at The San Francisco World Spirits Competition
Tanglin Orchid Gin, the first gin to be distilled in Singapore, adds the prestigious Silver Award at The San Francisco World Spirits Competition (SFWSC) to its accolades.
A Silver medal from SFWSC represents an outstanding spirit that shows refinement and finesse, as well as complexity; these winners are among the best examples of their categories. There were more than 3000 spirits judged this year, making it the largest number of entries in their 19-year history. Carrying out blind tastings to guarantee fairness with an esteemed judging panel from all over the world, the event has garnered an exceptional reputation among trade and consumers alike. This year there were over 40 judges split among tables and panels for category-specific tastings of spirits.

Inspired by the colourful history of Gin, traditional ingredients such as coriander seed and Angelica root meet Amchoor, Vanilla Bean, Orange, and Dendrobium Nobile Lindl Orchid. In Chinese texts from 400BC, this species of orchid was classed as ‘one of the nine immortality herbs’. After launching in June 2018, the Orchid Gin also earned a Silver medal at the Cathay Pacific Hong Kong International Wine & Spirit Competition (IWSC) in November. Tanglin has since expanded their offerings by releasing a new variant, Mandarin Chilli Gin.
