MINNEAPOLIS (PRWEB) January 15, 2018 -- Drake’s Organic Spirits, a Minneapolis-based distiller of organic rum and vodka, announced today that it continues to add to its already impressive array of medals by taking Gold in the Rum category and Silver in the Vodka category at the recent Asia International Spirits Competition held in September and November 2017 in Hong Kong. The competition is the first major international spirits competition with trade-only judges comprised of buyers from the top retail stores, sommeliers, mixologists, restaurant owners, hotel beverage directors, distributors, and importers.
Previously, Drake’s Organic White Rum received the only Double Gold medal awarded to a rum at the 2017 Global Spirits Awards along with the title of Best Rum (White). Its counterpart, Drake’s Organic Vodka, won a Gold medal from the 2017 San Diego Spirits Festival International Spirits Competition.
“We’re honored that tasters from throughout Asia loved our organic/non-GMO rum and vodka,” said Mark Anderson, co-founder of Drake’s Organic Spirits. “From the beginning, our mission has been to use the highest quality organic ingredients to create the highest quality spirits. These awards provide proof positive that exceptional tasting products can be crafted from organic ingredients.”
The Asia International Spirits Competition awarded medals on a merit basis by a majority vote. Nearly 100 submissions from over 15 countries around the world competed in a blind tasting, with top spirit buyers from Asia judging the spirit by its category and price.
