Melbourne Australia, 22 August 2021 – Teaka continues to go from strength to strength, winning multiple medals at the 2021 Melbourne International Spirits Competition. Teaka Camomile Vanilla Tea Spirit walked away with a coveted Silver Medal while our Teaka Rooibos Lemon Tea Spirit took out a Bronze. These awards follow Teaka’s London and Asia International Spirits Competition winnings earlier this year, as a further endorsement of the brand.
The Melbourne International Spirits competition is in its eighth year and and features over 200 entries from spirits producers around the world. The competition is judged by trade buyers in the market and is a strong indicator of quality. Showcasing an elite group of the top products brought out by distillers in recent years.
Teaka Tea Spirits
The first of its kind in the market, Teaka is an alcoholic Tea Spirit produced through the maceration of a unique recipe of tea, fruit and botannicals. Launched in mid-2020, Teaka introduces a low carbohydrate spirit that is bursting with flavour and highly refreshing. Enjoyed by most in a Teaka Spritzer used or to make delectable Tea Cocktails.
Teaka Camomile Vanilla Tea Spirit is a tea spirit produced using the finest chamomile tea, vanilla and local botannicals. Subtle and slightly sweet, with rich undertones, followed by a floral note of vanilla and soothing after taste. This drink is ideal to savour on the rocks at the end of a busy day, as you would sip on a whisky.
Teaka Rooibos Lemon Tea Spirit is a tea spirit produced using the finest Rooibos tea, honey, lemon and various botannicals. The full-bodied nuttiness of the Rooibos (Red Bush) tea, containing woody notes, is carefully balanced with the soothing lilt of honey lemon and a spicy cinnamon finish. Ideal to drink in our warm mulled wine equivalent, Spiced Teaka.
“We are delighted at receiving such great accolades in this prestigious international competition” said Craig Westcott, founder the Teaka Spirit Company. “This gives us great confidence that we are achieving what we set out to do, creating a subtle yet complex blend of flavors that may be enjoyed by both tea and alcohol drinkers alike.”
