Whiskies of the World is one of the largest and most popular consumer whisky tasting events in the country. All the spirits were judged on a 100-point basis, concentrating on appearance, aromatics, flavor, mouthfeel and finish. The judges, who are industry professionals from Austin, Houston and California, awarded Frey Ranch Straight Bourbon Whiskey and Frey Ranch Straight Rye Whiskey Gold medals in their respective two- to five-year categories. Award levels are Bronze, Silver, Silver Outstanding and Gold with only 35 percent of 2020 entries receiving gold, which represents “an excellent product that is among the best; remarkable.”
"We are honored our homegrown Nevada whiskies are being recognized on a national level and to receive gold medals for our bourbon and rye whiskeys solidifies our belief that growing our own grains, specifically for distilling, is the best way to create world class whiskies,” said Colby Frey, Frey Ranch CEO, co-founder and “Whiskey Farmer.”
