Spirits of the Americas results are in!

Mad River Distillers is pleased to announce that both our Maple Finished Rum and Corn Whisky have returned from the Spirits of the Americas competition donning Gold and Bronze Medals respectively.

Tasting Rums from both continents (a tough job for sure), judges had this to say of our Maple Rum…”Rich, tropical and confectionary nose, with a bourbon quality that shows good balance and great promise. American rum returns to greatness with this sipper, rich in flavor and substance”
