Valley Distillery Earns Top Honors at San Francisco World Spirits Competition


Arizona Distilling Company, the first and only distillery in Arizona using locally grown grain, earned the prestigious Double Gold Medal for its Desert Dry Gin at the 2015 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Additionally, the company took home three other awards.

Arizona Distilling Company’s Desert Dry Gin was one of the four American crafted gins to receive a Double Gold Medal at the 2015 competition, which includes a panel of 41 nationally recognized spirits experts that conduct a blind taste-test.

The local company also won a Gold Medal for its Humphrey’s Whiskey, a Silver Medal for its Desert Durum Wheat Whiskey, and a Bronze Medal for its Park Rye Whiskey. This marks the second consecutive year that Arizona Distillery Company’s spirits have been recognized with honors at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

Arizona Distilling Company was founded by three Arizona natives and their products are sold at more than 500 Valley locations. Their spirits can also be purchased directly at their warehouse located in Tempe. Guided tours and tastings are open to the public.
