High spirits: Bainbridge distills “World’s Best Vodka”February 21st, 2014 by Tad Sooter
Bainbridge Island is now home to the “World’s Best Vodka.”
Bainbridge Organic Distiller’s Legacy Vodka earned that distinction at the World Vodka Awards in London Thursday. The vodka beat out more than 1,000 brands from 25 countries, according to a news release.
The selection was made by an independent tasting panel. This is how judges described Bainbridge’s entry:
This is an excellent spirit that’s well balanced and full of individual character, great potential for cocktails. It has a powerful but soft nose with berry fruits and grain coming through. Rich, creamy, marshmallow flavours develop nicely on the palate.
The Legacy Vodka also won the award for best packaging design.
Bainbridge Organic Distillers opened in 2009. The company produces vodka, Doug fir gin and whiskey in small batches.
The World Vodka Awards are part of the World Drinks Awards,
