Boulder Spirits, 5311 Western Ave., Suite 180, makers of award-winning American single-malt whiskey, bourbon, gin and vodka, has won two double gold medal awards at the 2022 San Francisco World Spirits Competition (SFWSC) for its Bottled in Bond Bourbon and Bottled in Bond American Single Malt Whiskey.

A double gold medal sits above the standard gold as the local entries received a gold rating by all of the judges. “These are among the finest products in the world,” the double gold medal reads. The SFWSC is the oldest spirits competition in North America and, as of 2022, is the largest in the world.

“We’re thrilled to have won two double gold medal awards,” said Alastair Brogan, owner and chieftain of Boulder Spirits. “(These awards) go to show that great whiskey is being made everywhere — not just in Indiana, Kentucky, Scotland, but in Colorado, too.”

The Bottled in Bond Bourbon, aged four years and bottled at 100-proof, has an atypical bourbon-mash bill of 51% corn, 44% malted barley and 5% rye. The result is a bourbon with notes of oatmeal cookies, candied ginger and allspice.

The Bottled in Bond American Single Malt Whiskey was one of the first bottled-in-bond single malts in the U.S.A. Aged four years and bottled at 100-proof, this whiskey is luscious, rich and developed, with notes of dark molasses, toasted bread, faint fig and raspberry and cocoa dust.
