Five Saints Distilling (129 E Main Street) recently received multiple awards for their spirits. The distillery, located at the former Humane Fire Company on Main and Green, continues to do well in the community and abroad.
The recognitions and awards were accepted at competitions held in New York, California, and Seattle, according to a release on the company’s Facebook page. See below for the full release.
Five Saints Distilling and International Spirits LLC, located at 129 East Main Street, Norristown, PA received recognition and multiple awards in the past three months from International Spirits Competitions held in New York, California and Seattle.
Five Saints Blood Orange Liqueur received a Bronze Medal at the New York International Spirits Competition in April 2017. In New York City, close to 600 spirits from around the world competed in a blind tasting where top spirits buyers from around NYC judged the spirits by their category and price.
In May, Five Saints Savory Tuscan Style Gin received a Gold Medal at the 2017 Spirits International Prestige (SIP) Awards blind tasting competition held in Newport Beach California with 673 spirit brands and 118 consumer judges. “What was especially gratifying about this competition was that it was a double blind competition with neither consumers or contest officials knowing what brand was being evaluated. Brands received honest and unbiased feedback straight from an audience with zero industry entanglements and straight from their taste buds” shared Founder / Distiller John Robert George.
Then in early June Five Saints Distilling received word that each of their spirits won awards at the 2017 Seattle International Spirits Competition. Seattle conducted blind evaluations of national and international entries to celebrate world-class spirits with consumers, enthusiasts and local, national and international industry professionals. “With the success of the SIPs awards and NY Competitions we decided to enter all 4 products in the Seattle Competition. Our Slow-Distilled Vodka and Savory Tuscan Gin both took Silver Medals, our White Whiskey received a Bronze and our Blood Orange Liqueur received a Gold Medal. Its quite an honor and tribute to all of our supporters that we have won these medals in the short period of time since we opened in July 2016. We’re more than pleased – we’re absolutely excited!”
