AUSTIN, Tex., May 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
After launching in October 2021, Crisp & Crude™ has earned industry recognition and adds prestigious medals to its name, being awarded a Gold Medal and five Bronze Medals at the esteemed 2022 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, which is now the largest spirits competition in the world. Only four medals were awarded to the Hemp-Infused Cocktail category, which were all won by Crisp & Crude™, and among the 18 medals given in the Non-Alcoholic (Mocktail) category, Crisp & Crude™ received two.
Crisp & Crude™ Paloma Daydream + Hemp took home the Gold, which is awarded to products with exceptional taste and that are near the pinnacle of achievement; these products set the standard for their categories. Earning Bronzes are Mellow Mule, Mellow Mule + Hemp, Paloma Daydream, Gold Fashioned + Hemp, and OG Tonic + Hemp.
The distinguished reputation of the San Francisco World Spirits Competition is defined by the quality of its judges, many of whom are the most respected and experienced experts in their respective industry categories. The judging process includes four days of blind tasting to ensure equal consideration, and while tasting, judges evaluate each product on an individual basis, not compared to other entries in the flight.
“We are honored by the recognition from the judges, especially for Paloma Daydream + Hemp,” says Founder Talia Bennick. “We set out to create elevated, non-alcoholic cocktails that make non-drinkers, sober-curious, and imbibers alike all feel welcome, and we’re so proud that it stood out among such incredible competition in this growing category.”
Crisp & Crude™ is currently sold in select retailers nationwide and is also available for purchase online.
