Bainbridge Organic Distillers' whiskey wins international tasting award
Yes, they'll have another. Award that is.
The accolades continue to pour in for Bainbridge Organic Distillers, the state's first and only organic distillery.
"Our Battle Point Organic Wheat Whiskey was honored this past week with a gold medal, and 93 points, in the Beverage Tasting Institute's International Review Of Spirits," said master distiller Keith Barnes. "It was the highest ranked wheat whiskey reviewed this year."
The Tastings International Review of Spirits Competition is the oldest, most authoritative, most consistent and most influential annual spirits review in the United States. It was the first comprehensive annual international spirits judging ever held in the country.
All products were tasted blind by a panel consisting of senior BTI staff members, all of whom are recognized as world-class sensory evaluation experts in the field of alcoholic beverages, and talented guest panelists from the spirits world.
"As Washington state's only organic distillery actually distilling 100 percent of its spirits on-site from grain we are especially proud of this [award]," Barnes said.
In addition to their award-winning whiskey, the island-based distillery also produces Bainbridge Heritage Organic Doug Fir Gin and Bainbridge Legacy Organic Vodka, which was recently named the world's best vodka by the World Drink Awards.
