High Wire Distilling Co. was recently honored by three separate national organizations for their distinct spirits.
During its inaugural convention, the American Craft Distillers Association presented High Wire with bronze medals for their Hat Trick Botanical Gin and Quarter Acre Sorghum Whiskey (right) in their respective gin and whiskey categories. Over 300 spirits were entered in the competition.
Late last month, the distillery received another bronze medal for its gin at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Over 1,400 spirits were judged in this event.
Last, the American Distilling Institute, the oldest and largest membership organization of small-batch, independently owned distilleries, awarded High Wire Distilling three awards. Their Hat Trick Botanical Gin won a Bronze medal in the Contemporary Gin category as well as a Bronze in Excellence In Packaging. Their Quarter Acre Sorghum Whiskey also received a bronze medal for the Alternative Whiskey category.
“This is a major honor for us and something we have worked hard to accomplish in our first year,” stated Scott Blackwell, head distiller and owner of High Wire Distilling Co. “We wanted to create a distinctive line of small batch spirits that would be different from the rest. These awards give recognition to the incredible effort we have taken to create extraordinary artisanal spirits.”
