Flying Ace Distillery Wins at NYWSC


LOVETTSVILLE, VIRGINIA (October 20, 2021) – Flying Ace Distillery Blended Bourbon Cask Proof was awarded a Silver Medal. Flying Ace Distillery Silver Rum was awarded a Bronze Medal. In the Competition’s eight-year history, the New York World Wine & Spirits Competition (NYWSC) has established itself as one of the most respected judging events in the eastern U.S.A. The judges are among the wine and spirits industry’s most trusted authorities, not only on the subject of quality wines and spirits but also on the regional tastes and trends that drive the wine and spirits markets.

Robust Competition with Supreme Judging

Throughout two days of highly controlled blind tastings, the experienced judging panels taste every product to decide if it is medal-worthy. While tasting, judges evaluate each product on an individual basis—not compared to other entries in the flight. During this stage, judges determine which entries are worthy of a Gold, Silver, or Bronze medal.

The reputation of competition is defined by the quality of its judges. At the New York World Wine & Spirits Competition, the judging panels consist of the most respected, experienced experts in the wine and spirits industry. Our judges range from renowned writers and well-known New York City mixologists to esteemed beverage buyers, including Anthony Dias Blue, John Oliver, and Aimée Lasseigne New.
