PARK CITY, Utah (Nov. 8, 2021) — Alpine Distilling, a member of the Historic Park City Alliance (HPCA), recently reached the pinnacle of the industry at the World’s Most Important Gin competition. On Oct. 25, judges awarded the Gin Of The Year 2021 Gold medal to Alpine Distilling for their Alpine Distilling Gin, expertly crafted in Park City by distiller Sara Sergent.

“Congratulations to HPCA member Alpine Distilling, led by distiller Sara Sergent, for recently earning the most prestigious accolade in her industry,” Historic Park City Alliance executive director Ginger Wicks said. “As the only American Distillery to place out of thousands of entries, she is a global leader in today’s ‘Ginaissance,’ the booming expansion of gin worldwide.” 

The most prominent Gin Buyers in Europe assembled under the iconic gaze of the London Eye for this year’s awards. Thousands of gins from 21 countries battled to impress the demanding Gin Of The Year judges who included senior representatives of The Ritz Hotel, Bibendum and Venus Wine & Spirit Merchants PLC.

“As the World’s Most Important Gin competition, Gin Of The Year is what the industry depends on to keep buyers up to date with the ever-evolving trends enjoyed by the market,” said Sara Sergent of Alpine Distilling. “With expanding varieties launching, Gin Of The Year judges whittle down the absolute best in the world.
