In just under five years, Compass Distillers has cultivated an impressive 79 medals and awards from notable competitions such as the World Gin Awards, New York International Spirit Competition, San Francisco International Spirit Competition, Denver Spirit Competition and more, with over 25 awards placing Best in Class, Gold or Double Gold.  Our small team of just three distillers has never been so in-tune with their craft. 

Grit and persistence to achieve excellence drive them to continue a journey of pushing boundaries; experimenting with innovative wild plants and spices each year.  Featured on this page are just a few of our favourite awards, some even being community-based.
