Hartford Flavor is proud to share our Silver Medal from the New York World Spirits Competition! The Rose flavor was our single entry and we believe the award represents testimony of the high quality of the entire line of flavors. Enjoy the handcrafted goodness!
The New York Spirits Competition is the only wine and spirits competition in the world that is associated with the Triple Crown of Competitions ( The San Francisco International Wine Competition and The San Francisco World Spirits Competition). The integrity of The New York World Wine and Spirits Competition starts with the quality, expertise and probity of the judges. And the fact that it takes place right in the heart of New York City. This is the interpretation of integrity. These judges have a wide variety of experiences and backgrounds that facilitates a true, unbias quality of judging of all brands entered. The judges of the 2015 competition were Anthony Dias Blue and Steve Wesler.
