Alpine Distilling Single Malt Earns Top Honors

TRAVELER’S REST AMERICAN SINGLE MALT WHISKEY BY ALPINE DISTILLING NAMED A TOP AMERICAN MALT WHISKEY BY THE FIFTY BEST

The Fifty Best, an online guide that rates the finest wines and spirits, recently hosted an American Malt Whiskey Tasting of 20 products evaluated for the distinguished “Best American Malt Whiskey” awards for 2018. Alpine Distilling’s Traveler’s Rest American Single Malt Whiskey was awarded a Double Gold medal, the highest honor. The Park City, Utah-based craft distillery was founded in 2016.

Using professional criteria, the pre-qualified panel of judges blind-tasted the American malt whiskies and rated them individually on a 1 to 5 point scoring system with five being the best. After tallying the scores, medals were awarded based on the judges’ impressions.

“We are honored to have Traveler’s Rest Single Malt receive such high accolades from experts in various disciplines of the spirits industry,” says Rob Sergent, Alpine Distilling’s managing director. “Alpine Distilling is committed to producing the finest spirits using traditional distilling techniques to create distinctive flavor combinations.”

To create this rich, nutty single malt whiskey, North American high protein, high enzyme 100% malted barley is aged first in used Jack Daniels barrels and finished with new, toasted French Oak.

Additional, award-winning craft spirits from Alpine Distilling include Lafayette Spiced Flavored Whiskey, Preserve Liqueur, Persistent Vodka, and Spur Whiskey.

Alpine Distilling Wins Two SIP Awards

PARK CITY, UTAH’S ALPINE DISTILLING ADDS MORE PRESTIGIOUS AWARDS TO ITS COLLECTION

Traveler’s Rest 88 Proof Single Malt Whiskey and Persistent Vodka Earn Gold and Silver Medals, Respectively, at 2017 SIP Awards

Following a hugely successful result at the 2016 International Consumer Tasting SIP Awards where Lafayette Bourbon won a Gold Medal and Preserve Liqueur won Platinum, Alpine Distilling came home with two more awards for its craft spirits in 2017. The SIP Awards announced this month that Traveler’s Rest 88 Proof American Single Malt Whiskey was awarded Gold while Persistent Vodka was awarded Silver.

The only Gold medal-winning single malt, Traveler’s Rest is characterized by nutty, mocha and banana notes. This smooth, drinkable whiskey is aged in Missouri Oak and finished with toasted French Oak to accent subtle vanilla spice, which complements the 6-row barley base.

The 100% corn, gluten free, and non-GMO Persistent Vodka is cut with demineralized, lightly acidic water to create a crisp flavor that is delightful over ice or as a neutral spirit served in cocktails. Clean and slightly sweet, it is distilled six times.

“As a new distillery, it is especially gratifying that all four submissions have earned such high accolades from tasters,” says Distiller and Founder Rob Sergent. “We have enjoyed an equally enthusiastic reception from our local community in Park City and from highly regarded food and beverage industry professionals worldwide. We’re looking forward to expanding our distribution throughout the U.S., in overseas markets, and online.”

Water is a key factor in the superior taste Alpine’s spirits offer. The distillery’s Park City, Utah facility was chosen specifically for the water supply, which comes from an under-mountain aquifer that arrives at the distillery at 52 degrees, 354 ppm and at a pH of 8.0. Working with Water Science’s experts, a carbon-filtering and double reverse osmosis system was engineered to both soften and balance the natural electrolytes while reducing the harsh iron.

Alpine Distilling’s products can be purchased directly from the distillery and will be available in Utah State Liquor Stores beginning this month. It is also served by many fine Park City establishments.
