TX Blended Whiskey Wins "Best American Craft Whiskey" And "Double Gold" At San Francisco World Spirits Competition

FORT WORTH, Texas, April 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Thirty-four international spirits experts with the finest palates convened at the elegant Hotel Nikko in San Francisco from March 21-24 to judge the 13th Annual World Spirits Competition.

North Texas' premiere whiskey distillery, Firestone & Robertson Distilling Co., was proud to take home the "Best American Craft Whiskey" award for its TX Blended Whiskey, along with a "Double Gold" award. 

"We've been very fortunate to gain an amazing response to the whiskey throughout Texas," said Co-Founder Leonard Firestone. "But to receive these awards from a world renowned competition is unexpected, humbling and incredibly exciting for our young Texas distillery. We couldn't be more proud and thankful." 

This spirits competition is the largest in the U.S., as well as the most recognized in the world. Often an indicator of trends in the marketplace, the competition is considered to be the rite of passage for top quality spirits. 

"In the two years leading up to the debut of TX, we worked hard to create a unique taste profile in an almost forgotten category," said Co-Founder Troy Robertson. "Our decision and effort was certainly not without risk. It's extremely gratifying to see that the esteemed judges of the competition have validated our instinct and hard work."

TX Blended Whiskey is created in small batches, with a methodical and local approach. Leonard and Troy put a handcrafted touch on every aspect of this artisanal product. They have a close-knit staff who package each one of these bottles with meticulous care.

Leonard and Troy are also crafting a straight bourbon whiskey that is produced with indigenous Texas ingredients and resources, which is currently in the aging process.
