U.S.- based Bainbridge Battle Point Whiskey wins Gold, ranked Best Wheat Whiskey in World Spirits Championships

Bainbridge Island, WA - Bainbridge Organic Distillers is honored to announce their BAINBRIDGE BATTLE POINT ORGANIC WHEAT WHISKEY has been awarded a Gold Medal and was ranked as Best Wheat Whiskey by the Beverage Tasting Institute's World Spirits Championships (now named the International Review of Spirits). Of the hundreds of whiskeys entered from the United States and Canada, BAINBRIDGE BATTLE POINT ORGANIC WHEAT WHISKEY received 93 Points, the highest rating for any wheat whiskey entered for judging.

The Tastings International Review of Spirits Competition is the oldest, most authoritative, most consistent, and most influential annual spirits review in the United States for the last 20 years. BTI's spirits competition was the first comprehensive, annual international spirits judging ever held in the United States. Throughout the year, Tastings Beverage Testing Institute invites select members of the trade to join them as panelists in blind tastings of specific categories of spirits. Spirits producers and importers, large and small, from around the world and across the country participate in our ongoing spirits competition because they know that BTI conducts the most objective, consistent, and widely respected spirits reviews in America. Millions of consumers use spirits reviews on Tastings.com when making their spirits buying decisions. Retailers and distributors across the U.S. closely watch Tastings.com reviews when looking for products to carry.

All products will be tasted blind by a panel consisting of senior BTI staff members, all of whom are recognized as world-class sensory evaluation experts in the field of alcoholic beverages, trained BTI staff and talented guest panelists from the spirits world. BTI uses a proprietary tasting methodology that assures accurate, repeatable results. Each product will receive a score based on a 100-point scale and a tasting note. Based on the scores from the current session, medalists will be declared for each category. BTI regularly reviews thousands of beverages every year.

The BTI tasting panel's official review of BAINBRIDGE BATTLE POINT ORGANIC WHEAT WHISKEY reads 'Bright amber color. Rich aromas of caramel and vanilla buttercream frostings on white cake with mango marmalade filling, leather, and polished cedar. Supple, fruity-yet-dry medium-to-full body and a long, rich warming spice, honeyed raisin toast, and toffee finish. A decadently flavorful sipping whisky that is sure to please. International Review of Spirits Award: GOLD MEDAL, Rating: 93 POINTS (Exceptional).' http://www.tastings.com/scout_spirits.lasso?id=205666

BAINBRIDGE BATTLE POINT ORGANIC WHEAT WHISKEY is distilled entirely from organic soft white wheat grown in Walla Walla County in Washington state. To make the whiskey master distiller Keith Barnes ferments the mash using 2 different strains of yeast, which add to the spirits complexity and flavor profile. BATTLE POINT is aged for 2 years in new, 10-gallon heavy-charred American White Oak barrels. Maturing the spirit in Bainbridge Island's maritime air plays a unique role in the whiskey's character. BAINBRIDGE BATTLE POINT ORGANIC WHEAT WHISKEY was also recently awarded a Double Gold Medal for Best Wheat Whiskey/Best of Show at the Great American Distiller's festival.

Bainbridge Organic Distillers is Washington state's first and only USDA Certified Organic distillery producing all of their spirits on-site, without the use of bulk spirits or spirits made and aged for the anonymous bulk spirits market. They strive to make sure every step in the process is sustainably and responsibly managed, and work with local family farmers to select grain varieties that express the unique soil and growing conditions found in Washington state. In addition to the BAINBRIDGE BATTLE POINT ORGANIC WHEAT WHISKEY, Bainbridge also produces BAINBRIDGE HERITAGE ORGANIC DOUG FIR GIN and BAINBRIDGE LEGACY ORGANIC VODKA, recently named World's Best Vodka by the World Drinks Awards.

Bainbridge Organic Distiller's spirits are currently available in fine restaurants and retail outlets throughout WA and CA. National distribution is in process.

A full list of all the category and sub-category winners along with pictures and tasting notes can be found on the awards website: http://www.tastings.com/LatestSpiritsReviews.html
