in our efforts to position Inniskillin Icewine as a global brand. We have
created a completely new liquor category in travel retail and Inniskillin
Gold label is now ranked in the top 20 best-distributed brands worldwide
and number one in the wine category. Our winery produces a consistently
high quality Icewine which has been hugely appreciated by our end consumers."

plaudits, including Gold Medals at Vinexpo, Bordeaux, and most recently
two top trophies at the International Wine Challenge in London.
