Local distillers show winning spirit

Those who fancy a tipple of the finest vodka or whisky will be pleased to learn that two of the world’s best are made right here in Western Australia.

Two local distilleries have been named best in class at the world’s largest craft spirit competition, run by the American Distilling Institute, held earlier this week in US city Baltimore.

The title for best international vodka went to Pure No 1 Vodka, crafted by Henley Brook-based Old Young’s Distillery.
