The New York International Spirits Competition (NYISC) named Ballast Point Spirits “California Distillery of the Year” last week, in addition to winning four medals for their quality spirits.
Ballast Point’s Old Grove Gin and Devil’s Share Moonshine each earned silver medals, while Three Sheets White Rum and Devil’s Share Bourbon each took home a bronze. Earning four medals across four different spirits categories helped garner the “California Distillery of the Year” distinction for Ballast Point.Yuseff Cherney, Ballast Point’s COO & Head Brewer/Head Distiller, stated “It’s always humbling to win individual awards for each of our spirits, but winning this distinction for the distillery as a whole speaks to the quality we strive to create across the board.” “Following the tradition of our award-winning beers with recognition for our new spirits business is inspiring,” continued Cherney, “especially when we are up against some of the best distilleries in the world.”
According to Adam Levy, founder of the NYISC, “We are excited to award Ballast Point ‘California Distillery of the Year.’” “The craft market continues to grow and mature and Ballast Point is a perfect example of a craft distillery that distills what the trade buyers and consumers will buy.”
