Jettywave Distillery Earns Three Medals in Prestigious San Francisco World Spirits Competition

April 28, 2023

Half Moon Bay, CA - San Francisco World Spirits Competition's history traces to the first fermentations blessed by the special terroir of California. A proud Northern California distillery, Jettywave expands this regional tradition in winning three medals from the esteemed judge panel, bringing home two golds and a silver. 


California has a long heritage of innovation, extended to wines with the Paris Judgement of 1976. Now the 'unexpected flavors' of Jettywave have been exploring outer palates with our library of distillates. Three exceptional standouts were acknowledged by the SF Spirits Competition: Single Barrel Bourbon, Coastal Gin and Honey Moon Shine. 


Gold Medal recipient from the SF World Spirits Competition, "Jetty Barrel" Single Barrel Bourbon captures the euphoria of finishing a legendary wave and the yearning for another drop. Symmetry of salt and sweet. Small-batch distilled on-the-grain, this maritime terroir bourbon finishes with a groundswell of smooth white oak, sesame caramel and stoke.


Coastal Gin adds to its growing trophy case with a Gold Medal from the SF World Spirits Competition. Previously dubbed a '98-point stunner,' this special distillate also placed above all other entries in its "Best of Best" Award at the  2022 Sunset Magazine International Spirits Competition. Our favorite critic's comment: "the first sipping gin that does not need tonic!'


Honey Moon Shine is the best love buzzzzz you can have legally. Winner of Silver Medal, there's something soothing to this unexpected marriage of coastal eucalyptus honey and its master, Half Moon Shine, creating a perfect 69 proof experience. Their first tasting reactions involved unfit words like $@&*! and *&^%^)+. Swirling this on your tongue, you'll experience a truly wonderful impression more like !!!!!!
