Our Tobalá is not only one of our most popular products; it’s also the most interesting. What sets the Tobalá apart from other mezcales is that it’s distilled using a wild agave found in the Oaxacan highlands.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) April 05, 2012
Wahaka Mezcal, the up-and-coming mezcal brand based in Austin, Texas, has been awarded the coveted Double Gold Medal for its Joven Tobalá in the 2012 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. The company also received three Silver Medals for its Joven Espadín, Madre Cuishe and Ensemble products; as well as a Bronze Medal for its Reposado con Gusano.
Held at the Hotel Nikko from March 23 – 25 of this year, the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, in addition to being the oldest of its kind, is widely regarded as the largest and most recognized spirits competition in the United States. Judging is based on a blind, consensual procedure, ensuring the integrity of the competition. The coveted Double Gold Medal is the competition’s highest award, and reflects only the ‘best-of-the-best’ of the hundreds of spirits participating in the event each year.
“We are so thrilled to have received such high marks from the San Francisco World Spirits Competition judges. Our Tobalá is not only one of our most popular products; it’s also the most interesting. What sets the Tobalá apart from other mezcales is that it’s distilled using a wild agave found in the Oaxacan highlands,” said Wahaka Mezcal co-founder, Alejandro Santa-Cruz.
The award of the Double Gold Medal comes after Wahaka Mezcal received high marks in this year’s Ultimate Spirits Challenge and its Madre Cuishe was given a 94 (out of 100) in The Tasting Panel’s famed industry column, Anthony Dias Blue Reviews.
In addition to participation in a number of leading spirits competitions, 2012 has already been an exciting year for Wahaka Mezcal. The company celebrated its official launch in the United States, and is moving forward with its expansion plans into Northern California, New York, Seattle, Chicago, and the Washington D.C. Metro Area.
