Premium Whiskeys recognized for excellence at both the 2021 Alberta Beverage Awards and the 2022 New York International Spirits Competition.
Cooperstown, N.Y. – Cooperstown Distillery has won national and international awards for three of its Cooperstown Select Distinguished Whiskeys at two esteemed competitions.
The 2022 New York International Spirits Competition awarded Cooperstown Distillery Double Gold – 96, for its Cooperstown Select Straight American Single Malt Whiskey and the distillery was named the New York American Single Malt Distillery of the Year.
The New York International Spirits Competition is a blind tasting competition and is the first competition to be founded in the International Beverage Competition Series. The contest is judged by qualified trade buyers who work with spirits and their customers on a daily basis. The medals for the competition are awarded on a merit basis by majority vote.
In 2021, Alberta Beverage Awards, which honors the best beers, wines, and spirits in the industry, also awarded Cooperstown with Best in Class for its Cooperstown Select Straight Rye Whiskey as well as the Judge’s Selection award for its Cooperstown Select American Blended Whiskey. The ‘Best in Class’ award is a superlative designation that covers all whiskey categories that were submitted for evaluation. Likewise, the ‘Judge’s Selection’ is also an award of distinction that places the product above its standard competitive set.
The Alberta Beverage Awards is a blind tasting competition produced by Culinaire Magazine for wines, beers, and spirits that are available for purchase in Alberta, Canada. Products are evaluated blind by panels of Alberta beverage experts to identify the best in each category.
Cooperstown Select Straight American Single Malt Whiskey is made from 100% local New York malted barley. This single malt ages a minimum of two years in new American Oak barrels before finishing in ex-sherry casks for six months. It has rich notes of praline, candied apple, and burnt almond on the finish.
Cooperstown Select Straight Rye Whiskey is hand-crafted from rye and other grains which are 100% locally grown in New York State. Finished in Cabernet Sauvignon barrels, the Cooperstown Select Straight Rye Whiskey is bottled at cask strength and is incredibly complex, comparing favorably to even the most prestigious names in the category.
Cooperstown Select American Blended Whiskey is made entirely from local New York State grains and is patiently aged in choice oak barrels. This whiskey is subtly matured and expertly blended to perfection before it is finished with French Oak for up to a year which conveys a very soft and graceful whiskey.
