DENVER (Inside INdiana Business) – Three Indiana-based distilleries took home medals in the Denver International Spirits Competition 2021. Contest organizers say all spirits were double-blind tasted by a group of beverage professionals, sommeliers and trade members.
Indianapolis-based West Fork Whiskey Co. took home three medals, most of all Indiana distilleries. The company received gold medals for its Old Hamer 100 Proof and Old Hamer Cask Strength Straight Bourbon Whiskey, as well as a silver medal for its Old Hamer Straight Rye Whiskey.
“We are honored to have three of our Old Hamer products added to this prestigious line of international liquor brands, further solidifying our position in the global whiskey and beverage industry,” said Blake Jones, co-owner of West Fork, in a press release. “We look forward to continuing to share Indiana whiskey with the world.”
The French Lick winery in Orange County won two medals for its Spirits of French Lick brand. The winery received a double gold medal for its bourbon from Lee W. Sinclair and a silver medal for its bourbon from Mattie Gladden.
Indiana Whiskey Co. in Indianapolis also received a silver medal for its Just Whiskey Bourbon.
