Burnt Church Distillery is proud to announce that three of our whiskeys won awards in the 2023 ASCOT Taste Competition!
Palmer’s Stretch Rye won Double Platinum, meaning it received outstanding marks from all judges. Anita’s Choice Bourbon won Platinum, meaning it was deemed an excellent product and met very high standards. Bluffton Whiskey won Gold, meaning it was determined to be a finely crafted spirit deserving recognition.
“We are honored and excited to have our three whiskeys recognized by the ASCOT Awards, especially our Palmer’s Stretch Rye awarded Double Platinum! As a relatively new business, it is encouraging to see we’re on the right track to producing the best in craft spirits for our visitors and customers,” said Burnt Church Distillery General Manager Chris Crowe.
The ASCOT Awards, which stands for American Spirits Council of Tasters, are a highly regarded, international spirits competition created by spirits personality and veteran tasting judge, Fred Minnick.
These awards honor distillers and marketers whose work is truly exceptional and deserving of industry recognition, and are divided into Marketing + Design and Taste Competitions. In the Taste Competition, each entry is blind-tasted and scored on a 100-point scale for appearance, aroma, taste, and finish.
