Our Unique, Patented Basketball Decanters Have Been Recognized With a Gold Medal

The John Barleycorn Awards have awarded a gold medal upon the Bottle Design of the Springfield Distillery (Brand) Collection.

Cooperstown, NY – The Springfield Distillery (Brand) Collection has been awarded with a gold medal for Bottle Design from the John Barleycorn Awards. As part of the Hall of Champions Collection, each Springfield Distillery (Brand) bottle of spirit comes in a unique hand-blown glass decanter. Each bottle is designed in the shape of a professional basketball, includes a replica pebbled-leather stopper and sits on a raised pedestal base with a classic rendition of an official basketball court. This patented design makes for an exceptional decanter that contains spirits of equal caliber. Available with our premium Bourbon Whiskey, American Whiskey, or Vodka; there’s something for every spirit drinker.

The John Barleycorn Awards are run by the John Barleycorn society, comprised of spirit journalists well-versed in the industry. Getting their namesake from the fictional personification of alcohol, these awards seek to honor the labor and craftsmanship that goes into the creation of fine spirits of all sorts. By awarding a gold medal, it means that the recipient is “an excellent product” and “meets very high standards.” Cooperstown Distillery is honored that the Springfield Distillery (Brand) Collection has received such an esteemed recognition.
