We may have all been glued to the television watching the USA dominate at the Winter Olympics, but another gold medal was won for a Park City local, Alpine Distilling.
The Fifty Best, an online guide that rates the finest wines and spirits, recently hosted an American Malt Whiskey Tasting of 20 products evaluated for the distinguished “Best American Malt Whiskey” awards for 2018. Alpine Distilling’s Traveler’s Rest American single malt whiskey was awarded a double gold medal, the highest honor.
This gold and double gold winning whiskey is home grown in Park City. The award-winning batch was aged in used Jack Daniels barrels and finished with new, toasted French oak to round out a flavor profile rich with vanilla, mocha and spice.
“We are honored to have Traveler’s Rest single malt receive such high accolades from experts in various disciplines of the spirits industry,” says Rob Sergent, Alpine Distilling’s managing director. “Alpine Distilling is committed to producing the finest spirits using traditional distilling techniques to create distinctive flavor combinations.”
You can find Traveler’s Rest at the local Utah State Liquor Stores, or for a truly unique opportunity, book a distillery tour and learn more about the other award-winning craft spirits from Alpine Distilling including: Lafayette spiced flavored whiskey, Preserve liqueur, Persistent vodka, and Spur whiskey.
