Tom's Foolery Applejack was recently awarded a silver medal at the American Distilling Institute 7th Annual Judging of Artisan American Spirits. There was no gold medal awarded in their category.
Over the course of the competition, judges evaluated 317 artisan American spirits: 127 whiskies, 66 gins, 36 moonshines, 47 rums and 41 fruit spirits were submitted from 124 independently owned, small-batch distillers. Judges awarded 23 gold, 44 silver and 46 bronze medals. The tasting was totally blind and evaluated in terms of Nose, Palate, Finish and Balance.
In the Applejack/Brandy category, Tom's Foolery and one other label secured silver medals.
"We are pretty excited that the Applejack got recognition," explains co-owner Lianne Herbruck. "There were no Gold or Bronze winners in the Applejack category, but two, including our Applejack, received silvers. It makes us pretty proud that the care and attention to detail is resulting in a pleasant product! We can't wait until they get the finished Bourbon and Rye to taste!"
Neither can we.
