Recent Spirit Competitions and Awards:
4 Spirits Single Malt Whiskey Awarded Gold Medal at 2018 Great American International Spirits Competition: GAISC Judges are made up of the most influential people in the spirits industry, including Masters Distillers, Certified Spirits Educators, Brand Ambassadors, retailers, importers and spirits industry writers and consultants. All spirits are blind judged; each glass is identified only by a number. Judges are given the classification prior to each flight. They do not know the producer of the spirit.
4 Spirits Cucumber Gin Awarded Silver Medal at 2018 ADI Spirit Competition: The American Distilling Institute is dedicated to running rigorous and professional spirit judging that strives to promote the craft distillers and blenders that are producing the finest quality artisan spirits and to give participating producers valuable, unbiased, third-party feedback on the quality and process of their spirits. To that end we have developed the following protocols that we believe allow us to meet these goal. We make our protocols publicly available so that producer, wholesalers, retailers and consumers can know the process by which each spirit is evaluated and the high standard by which medals are awarded. https://distilling.com/events/judging
