Company Distilling, producer of premium spirits in Tennessee, has announced that two of their whiskies received Double Platinum accolades at the 2023 ASCOT Awards.
The prestigious tasting panel found Company Distilling Cask Strength Straight Bourbon Whiskey and Company Distilling Seismic Rye Single Barrel Finished with Cherry Wood worthy of the Double Platinum recognition.
The American Spirits Council of Tasters was founded by world-renowned spirits authority Fred Minnick. Across three weeks, 43 seasoned spirits judges participated in a blind-tasting experience. Scores from all judges were tallied to determine winners for the Double Platinum, Platinum, Gold and Honorable Mention categories. The premier international spirits competition recognizes top selections from across the globe and this year, judges registered more than 1,100 entries, a record for the three-year-old-competition.
Judges tasting notes for Cask Strength Straight Bourbon Whiskey: A pop of alcohol quickly dissipates to reveal a tasty and complex whiskey with a nice mix of caramel, black tea and spice.
Judges tasting notes for Seismic Rye Single Barrel Finished with Cherry Wood: I love the cherry wood and what it adds. A perfect choice for a rye lover looking for an exciting diversion.
Company Distilling Straight Rye Whiskey Finished with Cherry Wood is only available for purchase in Company Distilling tasting rooms and will be available online from Seelbach’s soon.
