It’s another victory for one of our favourite local gin distillers. And if we’re being totally honest — we’re not even surprised!
South Australian distillery, Never Never Distilling Co., was named as the third ranked gin on the prestigious Top Trending Gin list by Drinks International, which is created by polling bartenders from the top 127 bars in the world as well as key industry influencers and pundits.
The distillery placed seventh on the list last year and was singled out as a brand on the rise. It was also the first time an Australian distillery made the list.
This year the distillery climbs four places, moving past global giants like Hendricks, Tanqueray, and Bombay, and are joined by Four Pillars Gin from Victoria who made number ten.
Never Never Distilling Co.’s Brand Director, Sean Baxter, says it’s an amazing result, especially considering the marketing budgets that most massive brands use to engage with bartenders globally.
“I think we are probably the only brand on that list with a full-time team of just four people,” Baxter says. “We’re incredibly humbled by the result and wanted to thank all those people who have supported us and our brand so far.
“We’re extremely proud of how far we’ve come in the last 12 months and are looking forward to continuing to shake up the world gin scene over the next year.”
The result caps off an incredible year for the brand, which has seen them pick up three international gold medals for their gins at top global competitions.
It feels like a win for all of us! They’re winning gold in our hearts and all over the world.
