COLUMBUS, Ohio (PRWEB) January 13, 2023
Middle West Spirits has been awarded 12 medals in the PR%F Awards powered by Food and Beverage Magazine. Middle West’s Sherry-Finished Bourbon received two Century Awards, meaning it received a 100-point perfect score from all judges.
The competition includes two categories. Masked is the double-blind tasting competition where brands are judged on taste and sensory perceptions like color, aroma, taste, and finish. It’s followed by the Unmasked competition where the judges evaluate each brand for its total package—they see and feel the bottle, read the ingredients, hear the story, and see the overall marketing package. The rating system is Century Award (100 Points voted unanimously), Double Gold (96 to 99 points), Gold (91 to 95 points), Silver (85 to 90 points), and Bronze (79 to 85 points).
Middle West Spirits awards include:
- Middle West Spirits Sherry-Finished Bourbon – Century Award for both the Masked and Unmasked Categories
- Middle West Spirits Oloroso Wheat Whiskey– Double Gold for the Masked category and Gold for the Unmasked category
- Middle West Spirits Michelone Reserve Bourbon – Gold for the Masked category and Double Gold for the Unmasked category
- Middle West Spirits Dark Pumpernickel Rye– Gold for both the Masked and Unmasked categories
- Middle West Straight Wheat Whiskey– Gold for both the Masked and Unmasked categories
