Liveryman Stephen Gould and Karen Knight founded the Golden Moon Distillery in 2008 and they have just received the prestigious Bubble Cap Award for Distillery of the Year, by the American Distilling Institute (ADI). The award is considered the craft distilling industry’s highest honour and is presented to a distillery that most exemplifies ADI’s values, including excellence in production, quality, transparency and education as a leader in the industry.
“It’s an enormous honour to be recognised by the ADI and our industry peers as this year’s Distillery of the Year,” says Gould. “The entire Golden Moon Distillery family has worked hard to get Golden Moon to where it is today. Our handcrafted herbal spirits and liqueurs are fermented and distilled using traditional methods going back to the 1800s. We have a lot more work to do to realise our vision so it is incredibly flattering that our industry has recognised our achievements to date and our plans for the future.”
