COLORADO SPRINGS, COLO. (PRWEB) – Wine Country Network, publishers of Wine Country International magazine and producers of six professional beverage competitions have announced the winners of the 5th Annual North American Bourbon and Whiskey Competition.
The N.A.B.W.C. was created to promote excellence in Bourbon, Whiskey, and Moonshine. This double-blind competition is based on a 100-point scale. Only American and Canadian made whiskeys have the opportunity to compete against America’s native spirits for the coveted N.A.B.W.C. “BEST OF SHOW AWARD.”
This year’s “Best Of Show” winner was the Limited Edition Weller C.Y.P.B. Wheated Bourbon, 95 Proof, Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, and $39.99 MSRP. Weller C.Y.P.B. letters stand for, “Craft Your Perfect Bourbon”. This limited-edition whiskey is the result of the overwhelming consumer survey consensus for the distillers to create a wheated recipe bourbon, aged on the highest warehouse floors for eight years and bottled at 95 proof.
Double Gold Medal Winners include:
- George Remus’s Remus Repeal Reserve Series II
- Buffalo Trace’s Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon
- W. L. Weller’s W. L. Weller 12 Year Old
- A. Smith Bowman’s John J. Bowman Single Barrel
- Town Branch’s Malt Whiskey
Wine Country Network, C.E.O., Christopher J. Davies, stated “this year’s competition, which was originally scheduled to take place in New Orleans on July 16 to 17 but was affected by Hurricane Barry. This was the fourth recorded storm to make landfall at hurricane strength on the state of Louisiana in the month of July. So the competition was moved to Colorado and took place on August 3 and 4, 2019 at the Omni Interlocken Hotel in Broomfield”. A follow-up trade, media tasting took place to celebrate the more than 50 medal winners.
Wine Country Network plans to produce the 2020 North American Bourbon and Whiskey Competition in New Orleans next year. For a full list of winners visit: WhiskeyComp.Com
