My Town Holland: Coppercraft vodka awarded gold medal by TheFiftyBest.com | Business
HOLLAND, Mich.-- Coppercraft Distillery, a Holland-based distiller of quality spirits with a focus on local ingredients and production, was recently awarded a gold medal for its vodka by TheFiftyBest.com.
TheFiftyBest.com hosted a domestic vodka tasting during which 45 contenders were evaluated for the distinguished Best Domestic Vodka awards for 2014.
“We are very honored for our vodka to receive a gold medal from TheFiftyBest.com,” said owner and co-founder Walter Catton. “Perfecting the flavor of the vodka was the most time consuming process of any of our spirits to ensure a smooth, clean tasting vodka that can stand on its own. This evaluation reaffirms our belief that this is a world-class product.”
Using professional criteria, a pre-qualified panel of judges blind-tasted the vodkas and rated them individually on a 1-5 point scoring system, with 5 being the best. After tallying the scores, medals were awarded based on the judges' impressions. The complete ranking results, along with tasting notes, can be viewed here: www.thefiftybest.com/spirits/domestic_vodka/
The 9,000-square-foot distillery and 50-seat tasting room at 184 120th Ave. opened in November. Visitors are invited to sample the products as well as enjoy a handmade cocktail showcasing Coppercraft’s spirits paired with freshly squeezed juices and other ingredients, many of which are made in house. In addition to the current spirits offerings of gin, rum, vodka and citrus flavored vodka, Coppercraft Distillery is also producing and aging bourbons, whiskies and brandies that are set for release later this year.
