Double Golds scarce in NY International Spirits Competition

Judging was stringent in the 8th annual New York International Spirits Competition. Unlike some adult beverage competitions that bestow a veritable tsunami of medals, despite 600 submissions from 23 countries in more than 50 categories, only six Double Gold medals were awarded in three categories.

They were:
Whiskey -- Basil Hayden Rye Whiskey (Kentucky), Speyburn Bradan Orach (Scotland), Three Ships Bourbon Cask Finish (South Africa)
Cognac -- Maxime Trijol XO, Maxime Trijol VSOP (Saint Martial Sur Ne, France)
Rum -- Balcone’s Texas Rum (Waco, TX)
 Awards in categories by state for New York entries:
New York Bourbon of the Year -- Hudson Whiskey Baby Bourbon (Tuthilltown Spirits of Ulster County)
New York City Distillery of the Year -- Van Brunt Stillhouse (Brooklyn)
Soju Producer of the Year -- West 32 (New York City)
The full list of award winners in all categories is available online.
