Springfield also voted ‘Maryland Gin Distillery of the Year’

Springfield Manor Distillery recently bested hundreds of distilleries from around the world to win a double gold medal for its Lavender Gin from the New York International Spirits Competition (NYISC), one of the foremost spirits competitions in the world. Springfield Manor Distillery also took home the Maryland Gin Distillery of the Year Award from NYISC, a prestigious honor that ranks the Frederick-based distillery highest in the state.

For the double gold, Springfield was one of 11 awardees out of more than 600 entries across the United States and from 29 countries to receive NYISC’s top award. The award competition is unique in that NYISC is the only international competition of its kind judged by trade buyers, according to its web site.

Springfield’s Lavender Gin is a combination of naturally filtered limestone spring water and farm grown English lavender, handcrafted in small batches. Its balanced and in-depth flavor has proven to be a judge favorite at spirits competitions on both the East Coast and West Coast for years.

“We’re thrilled to win one of the industry’s most prestigious awards,” exclaimed the owners of Springfield Manor Winery, Distillery, Brewery. In addition to the most recent awards at NYISC, “Lavender Gin has won four double gold awards from the San Francisco International Spirits Competition (SFWSC).”

Opened in 2011 and spread across 120 acres, Springfield Manor is the oldest distillery in Maryland. An artisan craft distiller, Springfield Manor produces bourbon, rye and corn whiskey, rum, brandy, and lavender gin. Spirits are crafted from crops of corn and cultivars of Lavender grown on the estate, which is located at the foothills of Frederick, Maryland’s Catoctin Mountains. The venue also offers live music, expansive patio seating to accommodate up to 300 guests, and scheduled events, including the upcoming Maryland Lavender Festival, to be held on June 15 and 16. Tickets are still available for the 16th, which can be purchased here.
