Tenmile Distillery is thrilled to announce the San Francisco World Spirits Competition has awarded Sinpatch Vodka its prestigious Double Gold Award and Listening Rock Gin won the outstanding Silver Award.
About the San Francisco World Spirits Competition
Founded in 2000 by The Tasting Alliance, the San Francisco World Spirits Competition is largest and most prestigious competition in the Spirits’ Industry.
The Tasting Alliance Competitions are considered the most influential for a reason. Earning a medal from the organization not only helps brands enter and stand out in the U.S. and international markets but is a critical next step for any producer to earn recognition in the industry and with consumers.
The Judging Process
Judged by 30 world-renowned experts in the industry, the San Francisco World Spirits Competition requires that each spirit be rated through a blind tasting process. While conducting their tasting, the experienced judges evaluate each product on an individual basis, and not compared to other entries in the flight. During this stage, judges determine which entries are worthy of a Gold, Silver, or Bronze medal.
Sinpatch Vodka Awarded Double Gold
Awarded to the entries that receive a Gold medal rating by all members of the judging panel; these are among the finest products in the world.
This sophisticated vodka presents smoothly with classic character. Using only the finest local ingredients run through pot stills and a column still with a special reflux condenser at the top, Sinpatch Vodka receives an attention to detail you can taste. Enjoy straight up or to create incredible cocktails. This attractive bottle will stand out on any bar.
Listening Rock Gin Awarded Silver
Outstanding spirits that show refinement, finesse, and complexity; these winners are among the best examples of their categories.
This exquisite, locally handcrafted gin is brimming with character and flavor. Multilayered with hints of juniper, orange peel, lemon, lemon balm and mint (grown right at the distillery). This crisp, citrus-forward gin has quickly become the new go-to for knowledgeable gin drinkers while also converting many non-gin drinkers to the expression.
None of this would be possible without the hard work and dedication of our distillers, Shane Fraser and Cole Peck. Tenmile would also like to recognize Hudson Valley Malt and Migliorelli Farms for bringing us the best grains and barley the Hudson Valley has to offer!
