Bainbridge Organic Distillers has another award-winning bottle on the shelf.

Bainbridge Legacy Organic Vodka was named “World’s Best Vodka” by the World Vodka Awards last week.

The distillery is no rookie to medals. Late last year its Bainbridge Battle Point Organic Whiskey won double gold and best of show at the American Distiller’s Festival.

This time around, the vodka was selected out of more than 1,000 brands from 25 countries that entered in the competition, which held its awards presentation at the Palm Court, in London’s Waldorf Hilton.

In addition to being labeled the best all-around vodka in the world, the vodka also won “World’s Best Vodka Design” for its packaging.

The World Vodka Awards are hosted by the World Drinks Awards, which is composed of the World’s Best Brandy, World’s Best Calvados, World’s Best Cognac, World’s Best Gin, World’s Best Vodka, and World’s Best Rum.

Each product is judged by an independent tasting panel of the best beverage journalists and retailers across the world. Industry representatives made up of master blenders, distillers and brand ambassadors are included in the final round of judging.

In the packaging design category, judging is done by leading brand design creatives and packaging technology experts.

Every detail is studied in both categories.

Bainbridge Organic Distillers is Washington’s first and only USDA-certified organic distillery and works alongside local family farmers to select grain varieties that pull at the unique earthy flavors unique to Washington State soil and growing conditions.

All of its spirits are produced on-site which guarantees every step in the distilling process is sustainably and responsibly managed.

The distillery does not use bulk spirits or spirits made and aged for the bulk spirits market for any of its products. Likewise, no additional flavor, color or chill filtration is used in its spirits.

In addition to its award-winning vodka and whiskey, Bainbridge produces Bainbridge Heritage Organic Doug Fir Gin.

In March of this year, it will also be releasing Bainbridge Legacy Organic Vanilla Vodka.
