Well, this has been a big week.
Last month, we entered the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. We shipped off our bottles, crossed our fingers, and went about our business. The SFWSC is the largest spirits competition in the world, and one of the most respected. Earlier this week, we found out that our finger-crossing worked.
We're ecstatic to announce that all three of the spirits we entered won awards.
QUEEN'S SHARE RUM
This puts our Queen's Share Rum in the running for BEST IN CLASS in the "Dark/Gold Rum" category. We'll find out more about that in June. Additionally, we were one of only two Genevers to be awarded a medal!
YEAH, WE'RE EXCITED
We're blown away to have been given such prestigious awards. Several other local distilleries have received the SFWSC Double Gold in recent years. It is nothing short of overwhelming to be talked about in the same conversation. Dreams of receiving a Double Gold have been one of our motivating factors through the last several years of Echo Spirits.
So to those of you who didn't get a bottle of QSR Batch 001, there are still some floating around out there. The next batch will be coming out in November 2022, and we think that it's even better than the first. We have some fun plans for that, so stay tuned.
CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL THE OTHER WINNERS
Ohio did very well in this year's competition! Congratulations are in order to the other distilleries in our State! If you don't know any of these distilleries, go check them out!
