Louisville, Kentucky- June 17, 2021 - Rivulet Artisan Pecan Liqueur is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a Double Gold Medal, for the 3rd time, at the The Fifty Best’s “Best Liqueur” Tasting which recently took place in New York City. The Fifty Best has been conducting competitions and ratings among spirit brands in most spirit categories for over 20 years, and this year contenders were evaluated for the distinguished “Best Liqueur” awards for 2021. The Fifty Best also evaluates and rates restaurants, wine, spirits, beer, cocktails, cigars, food, travel and entertainment in major cities worldwide. TheFiftyBest.com is a digital guide to wines & spirits, featuring rated listings resulting from proprietary blind tastings as judged by wine/spirits journalists, spirits professionals, wine/spirit retailers, mixologists, spirits consultants and connoisseurs. The Fifty Best achieves the highest standards of spirits evaluations by adhering to strict tasting rules and rigorous methodology. The Fifty Best prides itself as “an unbiased guide to fine living, for those with epicurean tastes.”
“We were again very honored to receive out third Double Gold Medal award from The Fifty Best. Rivulet came away with the top award this year, competing against a different array of twenty-seven unique liqueurs from all over the world,” said James B. Marshall, the managing director of C88 Holdings, LLC, the producer of Rivulet Artisan Pecan Liqueur. “We are obviously quite proud of our quality story and craftsmanship. Consumers throughout the USA have been quite supportive of Rivulet since we were first introduced in 2014.”
Using professional criteria, the pre-qualified panel of judges blind-tasted the liqueurs in seven separate categories, and then rated them individually on a 1-5 point scoring system with 5 being the best. After tallying the scores, medals were awarded based an eleven judge panel’s impressions and evaluations. Double Gold Medals are typically only awarded when the entire panel of judges unanimously award a product a Gold Medal, resulting in a Double Gold rating! Many consumers have commented that Rivulet is the finest, most authentic and luxurious nut liqueur they have tasted. Rivulet is fortunate enough to have been awarded Double Gold Medals at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2014, the American Distilling Institute’s Craft Spirits Competition held in Louisville in 2015, The Fifty Best’s Liqueur Tasting in New York in 2015, and again a double gold medal at the Fifty Best’s Second Annual Liqueur Tasting in New York in 2016. Rivulet has won over 40 prestigious medals around the world since its introduction.
