The people have spoken.
Rogue Spirits earned five medals at the 2016 Spirits International Prestige (SIP) Awards, one of the most highly regarded competitions in craft spirits. The medals are especially sweet because this year’s competition was the biggest ever, with 462 entries from around the world.
Three of our spirits won the highly coveted Consumers’ Choice Award, which honors them for being medal winners for at least two years in a row.
Here’s the breakdown:
Spruce Gin: GOLD and Consumers’ Choice Award
Dead Guy Whiskey: GOLD
Oregon Rye Whiskey: SILVER and Consumers’ Choice Award
Single Malt Vodka: SILVER and Consumers’ Choice Award
Hazelnut Spice Rum: SILVER
What makes the SIP Awards unique is that the judges aren’t industry insiders, but every-day craft spirits consumers who ultimately choose winners and losers with their wallets. SIP does it this way to ensure their awards are not, “tainted with any endorsement, involvement or influence from the spirit industry.”
