#Repost @kingscountydistillery ( @repost_via_instant )Not all medals mean the same thing. Some competitions give out lots of #gold but @craftspiritsus is notoriously stingy with their highest medal. This year they handed out only 8 golds among 250 spirits awarded, and only 4 in the whiskey category. I am thrilled to say that Kings County came home with 2 of those gold medals in whiskey, for our Bottled-in-Bond and for the Peated Bourbon. It bears remembering that Kings County whiskeys, when tasted blind by professionals in the spirits business, stripped of all marketing and context, are often ranked among the best of craft whiskeys in blind competition with our friends and peers from around the country. While we always do well in competitions like this, it's nice to know that if anything, our whiskeys are just getting better.
