This craft distiller takes top honors in major spiritis competitions on both coasts.

Our brands have scored higher than many well known, mainstream brands. The reason is simple: because you can taste the difference.

Vermont Spirits, producer of Vermont White, Vermont Gold and Vermont Limited Release ultra-premium vodkas, announced today its standings in the results of two world-class spirits competitions.

In New York, the first Ultimate Spirits Challenge was held this month. This very highly regarded event involved top spirits experts judging literally hundreds of spirits by rigorous methods over several days. Out of well over 75 vodkas, including many of the most famous in the world, Vermont White Vodka was one of only four to reach the Chairman’s finals. With a score of 93, it was ranked “Excellent/Strong Recommendation” by the prestigious judging panel.

On the other coast, The San Francisco World Spirits Competition was also held in March. Now in its tenth year, this was the first comprehensive, international annual spirits judging event to be held in the United States. This year it awarded a Gold Medal to Vermont Gold Vodka. San Francisco and New York are different places in many ways, but on this they agree: Vermont Spirits are true champions.

These recent accolades round out an exceptional year for Vermont Gold and Vermont White Vodkas. Over the last twelve months, the Vermont family of vodkas has received critical acclaim in The Spirit Journal, The Tasting Panel Magazine, Bar Profits, BevX, Nightclub & Bar Magazine, the Examiner, the Tasting Table, The Robb Report and many other publications.

Steve Johnson, president of Vermont Spirits, commented: “Craft distillers are proving that ‘by hand’ really makes a difference. Our brands have scored higher than many well known, mainstream brands. The reason is simple: because you can taste the difference.”
