William Grant & Sons Launches Rare Cask Reserves Ghosted Reserve

image003

An exceptional one-time expression from silent distilleries

New York, NY(Spiritsman)8/25/15/– William Grant & Sons is thrilled to announce the release of Rare Cask Reserves Ghosted Reserve 26 Year Old, the brand’s first blended malt to contain exclusive whisky hailing from ‘ghosted’ distilleries Inverleven (operational from 1938 to 1991) and Ladyburn (operational from 1963 to 1975). For the first time in William Grant & Sons history, these whiskies have been married and now released for a limited number of true whisky enthusiasts to enjoy.

 Rare Cask Reserves Ghosted Reserve is not just rare, it is truly unrepeatable. To create this remarkable release, William Grant & Sons’ Master Blender Brian Kinsman selected malts from two silent distilleries – Ladyburn and Inverleven – and married both whiskies in hand-picked oak casks. He then allowed time to take its course, enabling the flavors to meld and mellow.

 This exquisite blended malt inherits deep, oaky and slightly oily notes from Ladyburn and sweet fruitiness with hints of floral blossom from Inverleven.

 Employing his world-renowned whisky artistry, William Grant & Sons’ sixth Master Blender Brian Kinsman personally combed the warehouse ledgers with the intention of blending some of the finest aged rare single malts and grains in William Grant & Sons’ possession. The result is William Grant & Sons Rare Cask Reserves, an unrivalled finite batch collection of handcrafted blended whiskies, which explore new boundaries in fine whisky artistry and offer a blend of a few of the rarest whiskies in the world.

Kinsman, noted, “Rare Cask Reserves Ghosted Reserve bears testament to the vision and skills of the five Master Blenders who came before me. This exceptional release is a whisky that gives me enormous personal pride. I see it as truly a high point of what blending can bring to the finest whisky, and a spirit that would win the deepest respect of our founder, William Grant.”

The marriage of spirits from Ladyburn and Inverleven has resulted in just 4,100 exquisite individually numbered bottles globally with 2,000 bottles available in the US.

Rare Cask Reserves Ghosted Reserve has an ABV of 42% and retails for $400 a bottle.

The Annasach 25 Year Old Launches in the United States

 

Finite signature whiskies blended from our cherished archives

(New York, NY) William Grant & Sons is proud to announce the launch of Rare Cask Reserves The Annasach 25 Year Old, an exciting release of four rare and finite signature blends, handcrafted from its cherished archives.

The exceptional range of whiskies released from the William Grant & Sons Rare Cask Reserves, which is exclusive to the United States, offers only a select few whisky specialists a rare insight into the artistry of whisky blending. The Annasach release is comprised of four ancient blended malt expressions, which have been personally selected by four key customers and blended by William Grant & Sons’ sixth Master Blender Brian Kinsman.

 

The four unique expressions of Rare Cask Reserves The Annasach 25 Year Old have been selected by whisky specialists from Binny’s, BevMo!, Total Wine and Spec’s Liquors, and are available exclusively in their respective stores due to the exclusive nature of the products that are available to all retailers. Employing his world-renowned whisky artistry, Master Blender Brian Kinsman has personally combed William Grant & Sons’ warehouse ledgers with the intention of blending some of the finest aged rare single malts and grains in the family’s collection. It is from these venerated stocks that these four key customers selected the malt whisky to create their custom blend.

 

Over the past 20 to 40 years, these whiskies have been hand selected for the private collection of the proud distilling family of William Grant, founder of The Balvenie and Glenfiddich. In this sense, Kinsman’s work lies firmly on the shoulders of giants – the five Master Blender predecessors who contributed to the family’s tradition of laying down the very best for the future.

William Grant & Sons sixth Master Blender, Brian Kinsman noted, “With remarkable foresight, the Grant family has built an unrivalled collection of Scotch whiskies.

WICKED 87 SPIRITS – AMERICAN LIGHT WHISKEY

tn-3tn-10

Michael Hepworth

 

“ANOTHER LONG HANG TIME WITH” … A FEW SHOTS OF LIGHTNING FROM THE WICKED TANGO DISTILLERIES!

WICKED 87 SPIRITS – AMERICAN LIGHT WHISKEY

 

By Michael Cohan

HOLLYWOOD(Spiritsman)8/22/15/—Doesn’t the name Wicked 87 conjure up images of a paralytic nature? It sure does while sampling this second version of intoxicating whiskeys from Wicked Tango LLC. Seth and Dorcie Fox of High Plains Inc. have again captured another bolt of lightning that is sharp on the tongue and should be consumed cautiously! The initial jolt of this honey flavored syrup thunders down the tributaries of your throat like rivers spilling into the ocean reaching all your senses and landing everywhere in your mind and body! This affect definitely creates the hang time associated with attempting to drink this 87 proof whiskey! Does anyone know what the word “light” is doing on the bottle?!

imgres-9

Upon further inspection of the label the beauty riding the lightning bolt is not a brunette that was mentioned in this reviewer’s first review, but she has black and red hair blowing in the wind. She is our rescuer of sorts as we try to ride out the long hang time during which our minds are taken back to the tattooed and hard core hair bands of the 80’s. Quite like listening to long guitar solos!

The company of Wicked Tango is the collaboration of friends Jim White and Larry Bross by living their motto” work hard and play harder.” They believed in the American dream and their company is based on these principles. It is simply, “no matter who you are there’s nothing like a little wicked fun after working long hours to provide for yourself and your loved ones.”

On a family ski trip to Steamboat, CO the two men ended up in a gondola lift bonding, laughing and drinking their whiskey, making fun of each other’s appearances. They were a few shots deep all grungy from a day on the slopes.   The name of Wicked Tango came about when Jim said, “Dude, you’re simply tilted and over the top.” Larry’s retort, “Vacation baby, and Wicked it will be.”

Wicked Tango LLC was born with the owner’s desire to create a company that would not only make the most of every opportunity to let loose and enjoy life but could also sell the desire of the “Play Harder” concept of the American dream to all those deserving. As the guys says, “If we can work hard, enjoy the ride, and allow all those hard working folks around us to do the same then our company will be a success. Wicked, rowdy, fun and supportive of the American dream…we can all drink to that.

WICKED 87 AMERICAN – LIGHT WHISKEY

We couldn’t be more proud of our Wicked 87?s rich, clean and wickedly smooth high-proofed nature.  This whiskey is distilled in the heart of Kansas from the highest quality, locally grown corn, and then aged to perfection in medium charred oak barrels from Missouri.  This old-fashioned American Whiskey conjures up light notes of oak, butterscotch and hints of smoky vanilla.  It’s a recipe for one rowdy night!

LES PLANTATIONS AND THE SAINT JAMES CUVEE 1765 RHUM

LES PLANTATIONS AND THE SAINT JAMES CUVEE 1765 RHUM

imgres-2

A MAINSTAY ON THE ISLAND OF MARTINIQUE

 

HOLLYWOOD(Spiritsman)8/11/15/–This rhum is from the French colony of Martinique and when the bottle arrived on my desk I just had the gut feeling that I was about to try something very good.

imgres-5

 

The history of Saint James started out in 1765 when the Brothers of Charity took over the management of Fort Saint-Pierre hospital on the Caribbean island, and built a sugar mill. The Cuvee 1765 Anniversary Rhum is a dark rhum that is 42% alcohol, similar in strength to the six other dark and aged rums in the Saint James collection. At press time it is not even on the market yet, but please keep an eye out for this rather exceptional spirit.

Saint James is one of the oldest rums in Martinique and because they have their own estates, They are pretty much self sufficient. They even have a rum museum and a Maison de la Distillation, and for tourists to the island, a visit to the yearly Rum festival is an event not to be missed.

imgres-7

Saint James start with the Extra old, 7 years old, 12 years old, 15 years old, the Vintage 2001 and the Quintessence. Master blender Myriam Bredas is keen to point out that even making rum today is a delicate process, with little or no margin for error, so all of the cane sugar used in Saint James rums comes from a parcel of land in the surrounding hills of the distillery.

No pesticides are used and they make up the difference by buying small quantities from other producers. After the plants have been crushed, the cane juice is placed in stainless steel vats and then simple baker’s yeast is added. After 24 hours max, distillation takes place in very old stills at low temperatures.

After the next selection where the aromas are the big thing, the liquid then goes into wood barrels, either French or American Oak. These are either second use Bourbon barrels or the slightly larger second use Cognac style, and the rum stays in these barrels for a minimum of three years. Currently the distillery houses 13,000 barrels that contain spirits being aged between one and sixteen years.

imgres-6

Getting back to this particular rhum, it has a beautiful aroma to it as well as packing a bit of a punch. This is a great rhum for cocktails, and as long ago as the 18th century, the Rum Sour (old rum, lemon, sugar) was being used by the islanders. Then they started adding pineapple juice with coconut milk, a forerunner of the Pina Colada, a cocktail created in 1950 in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Saint James actually created the Imperial Mojito Perfect Serve as well as the Strawberry Mojito and the Mango Mojito. During the swinging sixties and beyond the unpaid ambassador for Saint James was the heartthrob singer/actor Yves Montand who demanded only Saint James at every hotel, restaurant and bar he ever hanged out at. He knew a good drink when he saw it and you can too.

“Wicked Lightning” Moonshine – “Let’s Get Wicked!”

“RIDE THE BOLT” Shine It Up

 

By Michael Cohan

HOLLYWOOD(Spiritsman)8/7/15/-Do you want to electrocute your senses?! Do you want to feel the burn of fire and the subtle smoothness of the “Wicked Lightning” Moonshine handcrafted crafted whiskeys? Then step right up to the wicked girl riding the lightning bolt! She will pour you a shot of moonshine that will knock you to the ground!

52hOsEmiq1

Upon first blast this moonshine whiskey will trickle down your throat delivering a nose of wickedness! This whiskey tastes like no other as it will take you to the next level and beyond.   Its labeled whiskey but doesn’t seem to taste like it at all, maybe it’s the moonshine! It levies just a smattering of sweetness but finishes with a long hang time.

imgres-2

In 2005 7th generation Seth Fox and his family needed to “pay the bills.” On their 100 acre farm in Atchison, Kansas they stumbled on the idea of running a distillery “just looking for a new niche.” They founded High Plains Inc. and their first creation was “Most Wanted” vodka and then they produced a line of moonshine whiskeys, the first to legally introduce their family blend to the public. They are now enjoying the fruits of their success!

WT_moonshine_series_a6447ac9-84ef-4c4c-9bae-7a347da7df45_1024x1024-1

The Wicked Tango line incorporates four different moonshine whiskeys; the regular, peach pie, firebolt, and pumpkin spice. They are all priced in the median range of $23.99 to $29.99. They are created from locally hand-picked corn and Seth and his wife say its best enjoyed on the rocks. For full combustion just take one neat, vintage slug for ignition! This reviewer believes the lovely brunette lady riding the lightning bolt on the bottle is somewhat fashioned from the likeness of his wife Dorcie Fox. Check her out!

imgres

The company strategy is designed into their high quality products and affordable price points. They have developed their liquors for middle America. Hard workers needing true value for their beverages, a distinction of both worlds so to say. So be careful not to drop a sinful shot of the “wicked girl” and check out their tasty array of whiskeys!

Marlee’s Green Tea Whiskey,Chinese gunpowder tea, Mexican blue agave !!!

imgres-6imgres-8

 

By Michael Cohan

HOLLYWOOD(Spiritsman)8/4/15/–Marlee’s Green Tea Whiskey is a new entry in the pre-made bottled cocktails market. Just released last month to the public in Florida but produced in the whiskey capitol of the world, Bardstown, Kentucky. It is a combination of light flavors which are balanced by the predominant Chinese gunpowder green tea, Mexican blue agave, and American rye whiskey.

 

imgres-7

The agave acts as a neutralizer of the whiskey which tones down the texture producing its flat but fragrant finish.

imgres-5

However, the essence of Marlee’s is the deliciousness of the green tea and its natural health benefits. Creator Jared Berlin found this exotic whiskey blend while traveling in China. The Chinese invented this blend dating back to the 1800’s.

imgres-9

The presence of the rye adds just the right kick to the liquor creating a light and crispy nature of this low calorie alternative.

Creating A Spirit That Has Withstood the Test of Time; Gin WITH ITS MANY FLAVORS AND COMPLEXITIES

UNPACKING JUNIPER WITH ITS MANY FLAVORS AND COMPLEXITIES

Creating A Spirit That Has Withstood the Test of Time

 

By Kay Schroeder

Laguna Woods(Spiritsman)8/3/15/–Although gin was first made in Holland, the English discovered gin while fighting the Thirty Years’ War in the seventh century in Holland. The British picked up on the French name for juniper (genever, the main flavoring ingredient in all gins). The English went on to market vast quantities of the liquor under the name of Geneva (the Swiss city of the same name). Not long after, customary to the British penchant for contraction, it became know simply as gin.

In the 1970’s, it was nothing short of genus when the vodka producers recognized the huge financial potential of creating cocktails that the younger adults would enjoy. They knew that the ideal cocktail would have to be something more than just alcohol. To be attractive to this market, the cocktails would have to be mild, sweet, and colorful. Enter the Cosmopolitan, Lemon Drop, Apple Martini, and a myriad of other flavored vodka martinis. Some believe that vodka is the king of spirits when it comes to its ability to mix well with other ingredients, both sweet and savory. Old standbys like the Bloody Mary and the Screwdriver have remained favorites for years.

url-5

However, as any gin lover can attest, gin also shares a great reputation for being amenable to mixing with sweet and savory ingredients as in the Gin Gimlet, Gin and Tonic, Singapore Sling, Tom Collins, French 75, Salty Dog and the all time favorite gin drink, the Martini. Purists insist that a vodka martini is not a real martini. To be a real martini, it has to be made with gin. When it comes to making cocktails, more recipes call for gin than any other spirit.

Today many brands of gin are available to the consumer; we will compare four of them: Tanqueray Gin, Tanqueray 10 Gin, Bombay Original Gin, and Bombay Sapphire Gin.

6a00d8341c4f9453ef01676863f1bd970b

One rating system that seems to garner considerable respect is the Smart Rating which is a weighted average of scores and awards from these sources: International Wine and Spirit Competition, San Francisco World Spirits Competition, the Beverage Testing Institute, and Wine Enthusiast Magazine. Gins with ratings of 80 plus are considered to be the most desired brands of gin. Gins with ratings of 60 or more, while not the top picks, have appeal commensurate with, or slightly above their prices.

url-2

Like most spirits, in the final analysis, it all comes down to a matter of personal taste, largely influenced by your preference of the ingredients used in the production of the gin.

Tanqueray Gin: Those who love a pronounced flavor of juniper will likely favor Tanqueray Gin (1.75 ltr. = 59.174 oz.), $35.99). Other attributes include additions like the musky aroma provided by the angelica root. The coriander seeds contribute an interesting complexity to this gin.

url-3

Beverage Testing Institute gives it 93 points in the Five Stars-Spirit Journal, 2009, assigning these attributes: Pungent, aggressive citrus and juniper aromas; very flavorful with a pleasing tartness and snappy spice.

Tanqueray 10 Gin: A step up in price (750 ml = 25.360 oz.), $37.99), Tanqueray 10 Gin, in addition to the juniper and coriander seeds, adds orange peel to give it a sweet orange/citrus flavor.

Beverage Testing Institute gives it 97 points in the Five Stars-Spirit Journal, 2009, assigning these attributes: Bright, deep juniper and citrus aromas; assertive juniper bite, with a very smooth, oily mouth feel; tremendous depth of flavor.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Bombay Original Gin: Bombay Original Gin (in the clear bottle), (1.75 ltr. = 59.174 oz.), $27.99).

Beverage Testing Institute rates it 92 points, assigning the following attributes: Reminiscent of citrus and spice with a soft, delicate texture. Elegance is the key here, as all components are superbly balanced in a seamless, captivating fashion.

Personal Observation: Although Bombay Original Gin contains juniper, almond, angelica root, coriander seeds, orris root, lemon peel, cassia (Chinese cinnamon), and cubeb berries, I found this gin lacking in flavor as well as complexity.

imgres-11 

Bombay Sapphire Gin: A bit more pricey is Bombay Sapphire Gin (in the beautiful blue bottle), (1.75 ltr. = 59.174 oz.), $40.99. This gin, while staying true to the use of juniper, angelica root, and coriander seeds, infuses other ingredients like almond (for a nutty flavor), licorice (for a complex sweet flavor), and lemon peel (for a citrus flavor). While some may find the taste of Tanqueray and Tanqueray10 a little biting at times, Bombay Sapphire Gin tends toward a subtle flavor that has endeared it to many consumers. The strong sales of Bombay Sapphire Gin suggest that it is worth the upgrade in price.

Beverage Testing Institute gives it 97 points, assigning the following attributes: Perfumed juniper, bitter citrus, and brown spice nose; smooth entry; medium-bodied palate; pungent, spicy juniper notes.

Conduct your own 4-Gin Survey and decide if you agree with the Beverage Testing Institute’s ratings, or if you decide to go it alone and trust your own palate. After all, pleasing your palate is what it’s all about.

D is for Sean Combs – Daddy, Diageo, & Deleon Tequilas!

D is for Sean Combs – Daddy, Diageo, & Deleon Tequilas!

 

imgres-14

By Michael Cohan

HOLLYWOOD(Spiritsman)7/27/15/–When you mention the new venture of music and business mogul, Sean “Puff Daddy”Combs, one has to wonder what else he can accomplish! A global star turned liquor entrepreneur he partnered with Diageo in 2007 and created Ciroc Vodka. Now they have released a new version of Deleon Tequilas, a relatively small brand with a high price point. Back in November 2014, Diageo and Combs realized that the luxury brand tequila market was crowded and limited so they restructured the small batch Deleon as a second tier Ultra-Premium line; Deleon Platinum ($60), Reposado ($65), and Anejo ($70). These price points for this range are at the top of its key competitors, Patron and Tequila Avion. The luxury cost point starts at ($150) for the Deleon Diamante to the Leona ($850).

imgres-13

Deleon Platinum is a Blanco tequila produced in a perfume-like bottle design complete with its trademark “D” logo. Unlike its luxury version metal top, this ultra-premium has a round plastic top equipped with enough room for a shot! As you first put your nose close you will find that the aromas permeate your senses but not overwhelm the finish. Its sweet and robust flavor will startle your palate with a full bodied warming sensation! The Deleon taste profile creates a dry, neutral finish with a hint of citrus. Too many shots of this boutique tequila might just finish you off pretty quick; respect the feeling of the Deleon!

imgres-15

What separates Deleon Tequilas from the rest of the pack is Master Distiller Miguel Cedeno Cruz. His ingredients are exceptional in quality and the production process he employs uses the traditional distillation technique. This isn’t standard industry practice. That’s why the exquisite result is a twice-distilled tequila that retains its rich and nuanced character without any bitterness. No tahona is used in pressing; the agaves for the Deleon are pressed only by traditional mills. Distiller Cruz penchant for detail also allows only the finest portion of the tequila, the Corazon, to be entrenched in his glorious tequila invention!

RYAN WAINWRIGHT LAUNCHES NEW COCKTAIL MENU AT TERRINE

RYAN WAINWRIGHT LAUNCHES NEW COCKTAILS  AT TERRINE

West Hollywood(Spiritsman)7/27/15/–Terrine is one of the trendiest restaurants in Los Angeles/West Hollywood area, and the cocktail scene here under head mixologist Ryan Wainwright has always been closely observed by those in the know. Fresh from his appearances in sweltering New Orleans at “Tales of the Cocktail,’ Wainwright launched his new summer drinks menu that should create a bit of a buzz to complement Kris Morningstar’s take on classic French food. Since he has a team of about five very eager bar staff working like beavers shaking, stirring, cutting and much more, even watching them do their stuff is a lot of fun.

imgres-7

All cocktails are in the $11-13 range, so saying all that I start4ed slowly with the crisp and clean “Bell Garden” which consists of Tapatio Tequila mixed w/grapefruit, lime and Cocchi Americano. That one went down very smoothly and was followed by the much heavier “Fantome Fleur,” also Tapatio but this time with Dolin Blanc Vermouth and lime bitters. I know Vermouth is hot right now with mixologists, and this is a much more serious cocktail than the lighter one I started with.

imgres-8

For something more bubbly and refreshing I went for the “French 89”, perfect as a breakfast drink w/eggs that is made with Lecompte Calvados, Lemon and Normandie Cider and was truly refreshing. Quite a few of my fellow writers were going with the “Blackberry Fizz”, an exciting looking concoction made up of Belvedere Unfiltered, Mandarine Napoleon Liqueur, Lemon, Blackberries and Soda.

imgres-9

The “Dunderado” features Tanqueray Old Tom w/Vermouth and Calisaya and is a rich and very strong cocktail and quite elegant. This is a sipping cocktail, but for something maybe a lot more fun, then maybe the “Blood & Sands” might be the way to go with its exotic blend of Dewars 15, House made cherry brandy, Cinzano 1757, Carpano and Orange Juice.

imgres-10

Last but not least then the wildly named “Mr. Menotti’s Gold Coffee Grog” should set you on your way. This has three rums, Chairman, Atlantico and Skippers along with cold brewed coffee and Vanilla Fernet infused whipped cream.

imgres-11

Just a small note for Gin & Tonic aficionados that I did not try this time around. Wainwright uses Aviation Gin and combines it with house made grapefruit juice and Chamomile Tonic.

Marlee’s Green Tea Whiskey two unique flavors

HOLLYWOOD(Spiritsman)7/21/15/–Marlee’s Green Tea Whiskey  is a new flavored whiskey that combines whiskey and that form a fantastically well-balanced and delicious taste when blended together. Jared Berlin, creator of Marlee’s Green Tea Whiskey, knew that whiskey and tea was a common pairing dating back to the 1800’s and wanted to bring this duo back to life by offering something appealing to the modern consumer. Marlee’s uses only a handful of the finest and most natural ingredients, keeping it simple.
MarleesGreenTeaWhiskeyMasterBottle

 

Marlee’s Green Tea Whiskey is a proprietary blend of green tea sourced from select farms in China, brewed and blended with American rye whiskey and a touch of agave. This unique combination results in a delicious sweetness and fullness to the flavor of whiskey, while also providing a healthier and lower calorie alternative to other flavored whiskeys. It is recommended to drink simply poured over ice with a touch of lemon and mint sprig, but if you want to get more creative and try some fun Marlee’s cocktails, drink recipes and photos can be found online. Marlee’s Greem Tea Whiskey launched in Florida in July 2015 and is available online and soon in markets around the country. 14.95% ABV, MSRP $17.99.

41 Wines are Awarded the UWC Chairman’s Trophy,

the Highest Accolade!

 

 

Hawthorne, NY (Spiritsman)7/9/15/– – Ultimate Beverage ChallengeTM (UBC) announces the results of the sixth Ultimate Wine Challenge (UWC), held at UBC’s dedicated evaluation center in Westchester County, New York.

 Led by UBC Founder and Judging Chairman F. Paul Pacult, thirteen of the world’s foremost wine authorities evaluated more than 1,130 still and fortified wines, ciders, and sakes from around the world, a 37% jump from 2014.

image005

 This remarkable group of judges scored wines using UWC’s innovative multi-round judging system and the consumer-friendly 100-point rating scale. In addition to F. Paul Pacult, UWC’s judges included: Christy Canterbury, Master of Wine and journalist; James Conley, buyer and sommelier; Tim Gagnon, buyer; Gregg Glaser, writer and consultant; Jason Hedges, buyer and sommelier; Chris Johnson, sake sommelier and educator; John McClement,buyer; Tess Rose Lampert, educator; Patricia Savoie, writer; Rick Schofield, CWE and consultant; Francis Schott, restaurateur and buyer and Tara Q. Thomas, writer and editor.

 Forty one wines are awarded the highest honor of the Chairman’s Trophy. Other accolades include Finalist, Great Value (awarded where there is a favorable score-to-price ratio and shows that great tasting wines don’t always have to be expensive), and the Tried & True AwardTM,  bestowed on brands that have demonstrated unfailing quality and superb taste year after year. Tasting notes are provided for all wines scored 85 points and higher.

image004

 In accordance with strict UWC methodology, all wines were judged in appropriate fine crystal glassware at the proper temperature and were grouped in small flights of 3 to 8 wines, according to grape type, region, and price. The judging panels did not know the identity of any of the entered sparkling, still, fortified wines, ciders or sakes, in order to ensure unbiased evaluations and a level playing field.

image003

 Said Pacult of UWC 2015, “The dramatic, double-digit increase in participation again this year from wine producers making wine on five continents serves as a clear affirmation of Ultimate Beverage Challenge’s commitment to impartial methodology, verifiable authority, and uncompromising integrity. In short, everything we do, every system we’ve created, is geared to showcase each wine’s virtues in the fairest light possible.”

image006

 Top scoring wines will be published in the Ultimate Beverage Challenge 2015 Guide to the World’s Best Wine & Spirits in the October 2015 issue of Beverage Media, which is referenced by over 65,000 beverage alcohol buyers in the United States.

Ultimate Beverage Challenge (UBC) provides expert evaluation of wines and spirits for producers, importers and marketers through its two innovative annual competitions: Ultimate Spirits Challenge and Ultimate Wine Challenge.UBC partners are F. Paul Pacult, Sue Woodley and David Talbot. Past Challenge results, photos, entry forms and more information can be found at www.ultimate-beverage.com.
