The Battery Atlanta Celebrates ASW Distillery’s Five Gold Medals at San Francisco World Spirits Competition Wednesday 15 May, 2024

ASW’s Winterville Gin and Barrel-Rested Winterville Gin, distilled mere steps from Truist Park and finished in barrels from ASW’s official collaboration with the Atlanta Braves, Fiddler Chin Music Rye Whiskey, receive honors at the country’s most prestigious spirits competition.

ASW Distillery, a prominent tenant at The Battery Atlanta, has clinched five Gold Medals at the esteemed San Francisco World Spirits Competition (SFWSC), with two of these accolades going to spirits distilled right at The Battery Atlanta: Winterville Gin and Barrel-Rested Winterville Gin. This remarkable achievement underscores ASW’s unwavering commitment to excellence and innovation in crafting spirits, establishing them as the Most Awarded Craft Distillery at SFWSC since 2018.

Jeremy Strife, Executive Vice President of The Atlanta Braves, expressed immense pride in the ASW Distillery team for their exceptional work in producing top-quality spirits. He emphasized that the Gold Medals earned at SFWSC reflect their skill, dedication to innovation, and the superior offerings available at The Battery Atlanta.

Since its inception in 2000, the SFWSC has been a prestigious platform in the spirits industry, drawing distilleries worldwide and evaluating up to 5,000 entries annually. In this year’s blind-tasting competition, ASW’s signature gins secured Gold Medals, further solidifying their reputation for excellence.
