The drink ‘100 Years of Silver’, made from the Danish schnapps D Argentum, has been awarded a gold medal at the renowned Drinks International competition in the UK.

The cocktail, which is named in tribute to the legendary train connection between New York and Chicago, won gold in the ‘after dinner’ category of the competition for Den Ny Spritfabrik, which produces D Argentum and also won a bronze for its cocktail ‘Dillinger’.

“In the after-dinner category four bronzes, two silver and two golds were awarded. Den Ny Spritfabrik’s D Argentum-based drink, ‘100 Years of Silver’, was awarded gold. Made from D Agentum, Lillet Blanc, Creme de Cacao and lemon juice, Happiness Forgets’ [Alastair] Burgess said it was ‘limy, crisp, with subtle dill’ and ‘very tasty’,” Drinks International wrote.
