Winners at the 2023 WSWA Wine & Spirits Tasting Competition
Two of Mad River Distillers craft spirits received medals at this year's Wine & Spirits Tasting Competition, held by Wine & Spirits Wholesalers of America.
This competition rewards excellence in taste, and judging for the competition was managed by The Tasting Panel magazine and The Somm Journal. Our two winning spirits at this year's competition were our Revolution Rye, which received a Gold Medal, and our Maple Cask Rum, which received a Silver Medal.
Our distinctive Revolution Rye is our most awarded spirit. It is carefully fermented from local and organic rye. It is earthy and peppery with hints of walnut, berry and tropical spice. The chocolate malted rye lends a cocoa richness and finish.
Our Maple Cask Rum has won multiple awards. It is distilled from 100% demerara sugar and aged in maple-cured barrels from Wood's Vermont Syrup Company. It's a very smooth rum, with a nose of tropical fruits and butterscotch flavors.
