FAIRBORN, Ohio, Feb. 24, 2015 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Flat Rock Spirits announced today that its Stillwrights Straight Bourbon Whiskey, Stillwrights Silver Rum and Stillwrights Bourbon Barrel Aged Rum were among the medalists at the American Craft Spirits Association (ACSA) craft spirits judging event, held in Austin Texas.
Stillwrights Straight Bourbon Whiskey, an Ohio Bourbon, was awarded a Gold Medal at the event. The competition consisted of 155 of the country’s truly hand crafted whiskeys. Stillwrights is proud to be one of only a handful of fine Ohio made Bourbons. This is the second national award for the young Bourbon, having been awarded a bronze medal at the San Diego International Spirits Competition in 2014.
“Our Bourbon is aged 2 years in 15 gallon barrels for a faster maturation process,” says James Bagford, one of the three owner/distillers at Stillwrights.
Stillwrights Bourbon is a wheated bourbon, with no rye in the mash bill. The combination of the dark charred, smaller barrels and the wheated mash bill, give it a truly unique character.
“David Pickrell, former head distiller at Makers Mark, being a co-chair of the judging committee, makes this gold medal something very special for us,” Brad Measel of Stillwrights commented.
Shawn Measel adds, “Our commitment to attention to detail and craftsmanship is paying off.”
Stillwrights Silver Rum and Bourbon Barrel aged Rum were also both awarded bronze medals at the event.
Stillwrights also offers a line-up of 6 award winning handcrafted Moonshines and Stillwrights Spiced Rum as well. Ask for Stillwrights at your favorite liquor store.
