One of the Newest Spirits in the Pacific Northwest Is Honored at the Oldest and Largest Spirits Competition in the U.S.
For immediate release – Timberline Vodka, the newest spirit added to the Hood River Distillers’ portfolio, is honored to announce its Double Gold Medal win at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. The San Francisco World Spirits Competition is one of the most prestigious and well-respected award competitions in the spirits industry, and Double Gold Medals are only awarded to entries that receive a Gold medal rating by all members of the judging panel.
With over 3,500 entries from around the world, a Double Gold Medal award is an honor at any time during a brand’s life. To win it upon launch is rare, and a tremendous testament to the credibility of a spirit.
“We went through countless versions to get the perfect balance of grain and apples to make sure that this vodka was not only fantastic on its own, but highly mixable.” said Caitlin Bartlemay, Head Distiller. “Our whole team is so grateful to receive such an amazing honor right out of the gate for our newest brand.”
Distilled at the highest standards with 46 levels of purification, Timberline Vodka is a unique blend of grain, Pacific Northwest apples and glacier-fed spring water from Mt. Hood. The expert distillers of Timberline Vodka perfected the balance, adding just enough apple for a richness not found in other vodkas – sweet on the onset, mineral and crystalline in the middle and clean on the finish.
