Modesto, Ca (PRWEB) November 03, 2015
Each year, the editors of the Wine Enthusiast award individuals and companies that make a significant impact in the wine and beverage industry. In 2015, the Wine Enthusiast honored New Amsterdam Spirits with a STAR Award for Spirit Brand of the Year. Vice President of Marketing for Gallo Winery’s Spirits Business, Ernest J. Gallo, will accept the award at a New York City ceremony on January 25, 2016.
“We are humbled to receive this honor from the Wine Enthusiast,” Gallo said. “It is a reflection of the hard work of all of those who touched the brand. We truly would not be where we are today without all of the efforts of our distributor and customer partners.”
Introduced in 2007 as a contemporary American presentation of gin, New Amsterdam Gin leads with subtle floral and sweet citrus peel aromas balanced with notes of angelica. The finish is exceptionally long with a touch of ripe citrus and delicate juniper, giving it a greater balance than traditional gins.
New Amsterdam Vodka, a premium vodka made from the finest quality grains, joined the lineup in 2011. Five times distilled for unparalleled smoothness, New Amsterdam Vodka starts with a soft, full-bodied sensation on the palate. A subtle sweetness combines with a smooth, clean finish to provide a well-rounded taste experience.
New Amsterdam offers seven true-to-fruit, flavored Vodkas in addition to the original: Peach, Red Berry, Pineapple, Orange, Citron, Coconut, and Mango.
By September 2012, New Amsterdam sold one million cases of New Amsterdam Vodka in its first 12 months in market, making it the fastest spirits brand in history to make this achievement. Since its launch, domestically-produced New Amsterdam Vodka has gained acclaim among industry insiders and consumers alike, propelling the brand to be one of the fastest growing brands in the spirits category.
