One local distiller has won an international award for their Gin. The Steinhart Distillery has been recognized as a leader in the spirits industry around the world after winning big at the Berlin International Spirits Competition.
Thomas Steinhart grew up in rural Germany and now operates the distillery in Arisaig. He says winning the award has many benefits, including more notoriety and hopefully increased sales. Steinhart says he has been invited into a European Guild for Gin Distillers, adding another feather in the cap of the business:
The award Steinhart won is Canadian Gin Distiller of the Year. It also won a Silver Medal for its Gin. Thomas says people are welcome to visit the distillery to see the process of spirits being made.
