Cooperstown Distillery Recognized with Gold Medal by The Fifty Best

Cooperstown Select American Blended Whiskey wins Gold Medal from The Fifty Best

Cooperstown, N.Y. – Cooperstown Distillery has been awarded the highest honor with a gold medal from The Fifty Best for the Cooperstown Select American Blended Whiskey in the American Blended Whiskey category. The Fifty Best is a digital platform that conducts unbiased reviews of a wide range of food, wines, and spirits. For the American Blended Whiskey gold medals, a blind taste test was conducted by a panel of ten judges. The American Blended Whiskeys were scored on a 5 point scale, with 5 as the highest possible score, and the highest scoring whiskeys were awarded with gold medals at the judges’ discretion.

The panel described the Cooperstown Select American Blended Whiskey as having an aroma of nougat, dough, corn, rye, cinnamon bark, black pepper, moonshine mash, leather, and oak. On the palate, the judges’ palates identified notes of caramel, nougat, cream, vanilla, black pepper, leather, and cherry wood. Finally, on the finish, the judges identified apricot, lemon, grain, clove, black tea, new wood, and oak. It was described as a balanced American Blended Whiskey. 

The Cooperstown Select American Blended Whiskey is made entirely from local New York State grains and patiently aged in hand-picked oak barrels. Made of nothing but 100% American whiskey, it is subtly matured and expertly blended to perfection. It is finished with French Oak, which conveys a very soft and graceful whiskey.

The Cooperstown Select American Blended Whiskey is one of the Cooperstown Select brand offerings; which also includes Cooperstown Select Straight American Single Malt Whiskey, Cooperstown Select Straight Bourbon Whiskey, and Cooperstown Select Straight Rye Whiskey. These exceptional Distinguished  Whiskeys compare favorably to even the most celebrated names in the category and have won many prestigious awards in the industry.
