Montalvo Spirits, Inc. (OTCQB: ACSRD) (“Montalvo” or, the “Company”) announced today that their flagship product, Montalvo Tequila’s Reposado, was named Best of Class in the Reposado Tequila category during the 2013 Spirits of the Americas Competition. The blind tasting competition was held on February 10th and 11th at Innisbrook in Palm Harbor, Florida. Montalvo’s Plata was awarded Gold in the Blanco Tequila category.
“We’ve previously been awarded top honors for our Añejo and Plata, so to add a top honor for our Reposado is exciting” said Montalvo’s CEO Alex Viecco. “We’re still new to the market, so we’re humbled to have received such accolades right out of the gate. We look forward to entering many more competitions which will help introduce our product to a much wider audience.”
The Spirits of the Americas competition, part of the IWSC Group, celebrates the diversity and innovation of distilling in North, South and Central America. Products were judged on a 100-point basis, concentrating on appearance, aromatics, flavor, mouth feel and finish. The judging panel was hosted by Jack Robertiello and comprised of industry experts including Robert Plotkin, Pat McCarthy, Thomas “Mac” MacFarland Gregory III, Olie Berlic, Francesco Lafranconi, Elayne Duff, Junior Merino, David Pickerell and Gregg Glaser.
