Crosscut Distillery comes out on top in Canadian Artisan Spirit Competition this February, 2019 with both Local Harvest Gin and Triple Grain Vodka. Artisan Distillers Canada hosts the competition for its second year with distilleries from all across Canada. A panel of judges who exemplify knowledge and vast experience with spirits and a strong influence in the industry conducted a blind tasting evaluating spirits on nose, palate, finish and quality. Crosscut Distillery’s Local Harvest Gin placed Gold which represents an excellent example of style and is considered a rare honour. The Triple Grain Vodka placed Silver, making it the highest rated vodka entry from Ontario.
"Canada’s microdistillers are making so many interesting and delectable spirits it’s hard to know which ones to try first. With a strong range of entries and a credible judging panel, The Canadian Artisan Spirit Competition highlights the best of the best. This, in turn, tells consumers where to start exploring them." - Davin de Kergommeaux, Author of the award winning book, Canadian Whisky: The New Portable Expert
