April 3, 2019 (Vancouver, BC) - Vancouver Island's deVine Wines & Spirits was delighted to learn its Genever Gin won the Genever category, and a Double Gold medal, at the recent San Francisco World Spirits Competition held March 22 - 24 2019. This year the prestigious competition included a record number of spirits, as there were nearly 3,000 entries.

de Vine is a family-owned distillery known for its handmade spirits, which include whiskies, gins, and brandies. The company's Genever is Canada's first Dutch-style gin, and is handcrafted from local malted barley infused with more than 20 rare botanicals from mugwort to wormwood. It offers a clean aroma combining herbal, floral, medicinal and citrus notes, and has flavours reminiscent of un-aged Scotch. Genever was awarded Best in Category, as well as Double Gold, at the San Francisco event, where it was judged blind against genevers from around the world.

The deVine tasting room is open Thursday to Sunday from noon to 5:00 pm.
