Yellow Rose Distilling Wins Top Honors at 2013 NY Spirit Competition


Houston, Texas October 25, 2013/mbb/ -

Yellow Rose Distilling, LLC., Houston’s first legal whiskey distillery, wins top honors at the 2013 New York World Wine and Spirit Competition.

Yellow Rose Blended Whiskey received a Double Gold Medal and the title of Best Blend in Show. Additionally, the newly released Yellow Rose Double Barrel Bourbon received a Silver Medal.

To receive a Double Gold medal, all judges must agree that the spirit is worthy of a gold medal. “We are excited to have been awarded the best blend in the NY competition. This aligns with what customers have been saying about the product,” states founder Ryan Baird.

The New York World Wine and Spirits Competition is conducted in similar fashion as the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Yellow Rose did equally well at San Francisco earlier this year winning two Double Gold medals on their Outlaw Bourbon and Straight Rye Whiskey. Yellow Rose offers four whiskey varietals, each have won top honors in 2013. The competitions use a point system to judge each spirit independently. Judges are selected from journalists, mixologists, beverage directors, chefs and retail owners across the nation.

“Yellow Rose is all about quality and we strive to create only the best whiskey. Our Blended Whiskey is a special mix of several high quality whiskey’s. Many other blended products on the market include grain neutral spirit, which is a cheap low-quality filler. The way we make our Yellow Rose Blended Whiskey improves the depth of the spirit and results in a lighter drinkable whiskey with great flavor,” states Smith.

Products are available now in fine establishments throughout Texas and several other states. For more information and distribution details please visit
