Boe takes silver at World Gin Awards


Boë Superior Gin, the premium spirit from Stirling-based VC² Brands, has been awarded Silver in the Contemporary Gin category at the 2014 World Gin Awards. The gin, which first came to market in 2008, is available in many quality bars and restaurants throughout Scotland and London.
Boë Superior is distilled using the traditional Carterhead still system yet, at 47%, it still retains a high ABV Named after the man widely credited with the creation of gin, 17th century Dutch physician Franz de la Boë, the high ABV is also in keeping with the professor’s vision for his original creation, Genever.
Distilled in small batches, using the Carterhead still system ensures the botanical vapours go through the liquid instead of being boiled, which apparently captures more flavour.  Boë Superior Gin uses all natural ingredients and has 13 botanicals.
Graham Coull, director of VC² Brands, the company behind Boë Gin, commented, “To see Boë Superior Gin receive this accolade is a great day for our business and proves what we have always known – that Boë is a world class product capable of holding its own in the global drinks market.”
