MONTREAL -- (Dec. 9, 2020) – Sazerac brands Caribou Crossing Single Barrel and Royal Canadian Small Batch Canadian Whiskies were awarded Gold medals at the 25th annual International Spirits Challenge. These awards were only given to brands that saw exceptional success in the blind tasting process.
The Tasting Awards were held over 12 days of intense blind tastings by panels of more than 50 respected industry professionals. Samples were delivered to the judges in flights of numbered tasting glasses to ensure accuracy. Each judge assessed the products according to age, region and variety, which is determined by the entrant and verified by the chairman.
Caribou Crossing Single Barrel is the world’s first single barrel Canadian Whisky and was designed to reinvent the category. Royal Canadian Small Batch Canadian Whiskey is carefully made in very small batches with detailed attention from Sazerac’s master blender.
