We vere very happy to have received the following awards from the International Whiskey Competition for our bourbon & rye whiskey's.
This was great news and pushes us to work harder for you, our customers that enjoy our bourbon and rye.
Thank you to all the judges that took part in this award competition. We appricate your efforts.
Congratulations! We're happy to let you know that the whiskies you submitted at the 2013 IWC won the following medals during last weekend whisky competition:
Best Young American Whiskey Gold Medal: Charred Oak Bourbon

The whiskies were tasted by a panel of four judges using the rating score sheet below. Medal design will be delivered to you toward the end of this week.
What you can expect from the International Whisky Competition in the coming days: • Unique Winning Medal in web and print formats for promotional use (contrary to other popular whisky competitions, winning whiskies don’t share the same generic medal) • Whisky videos for each of your wins will be produced and promoted on our social media channels

The Fifty Best held a “blind” tasting of 19 American rye whiskies with 18 pre-qualified judges. Strict tasting rules were applied. The order of service was established beforehand by lottery. Each of the ryes were poured into fresh glasses from new sealed bottles, and served at slightly above room temperature. Only ice water, neutral unflavored crackers and bar snacks were available to cleanse the palate. The judges tasted through two flights of 7 ryes and one flight of 5 ryes.
The judges wrote down their impressions of each product on score sheets. The scoring was done on a 5-point system, with 5 as the best. Double-Gold, Gold and Silver medals are awarded based on a set range of final point scores received from the judges. The scoring of this tasting was particularly complex since the comprehensive final scores were so close.
The tasting notes which follow are summaries of the judges’ opinions. The states of origin are identified for each brand."

RJR Spirits & Yahara Bay Distilleries are proud to announce that our Charred Oak® Bourbon took GOLD at this years Spirits International Prestige (SIP) Awards in the "Whiskey - Small Batch Bourbon 10 Years & Younger" category.
The SIP Awards were created to fill the void that is the current state of international spirits competitions. The illusion created by massive advertising budgets, celebrity endorsements and lofty judging is old, tired and susceptible to industry bias.
There is no better group of advisers for a product than real consumers. The SIP Awards are the first to cut to the core of public opinion as a starting point, rather than an afterthought, in branding and product development.
You can view the results at SIP Awards 2012.

We will have it in limited quantities by August. Since we are only producing this great rye in limited amounts when it's gone it's gone! That is until the next batch is ready. Just like our awesome bourbon this rye is a handcrafted spirit.
Stay tuned for more information on this awesome new product from Charred Oak® Spirits.
