Ghost Whiskey & Cape Henry Vodka Take Home Silver Medals in the 2022 USA Spirits Ratings Competition
By: USA Spirits Ratings Competition
Winning a Silver medal at the USA Spirits Ratings Competition is not only an ultimate seal of approval but also shows that Ghost Whiskey & Cape Henry Vodka are high-quality spirits with a broad consumer appeal.
One of the guiding principles of the USA Spirits Ratings competition is that all spirits that receive medals in the competition should be those that consumers actually want to buy, whether it is shopping for a spirit at a retail liquor store or ordering a spirit off a bar menu. As a result, the USA Spirits Ratings competition has created an entirely new 100-point rating system that takes into account three different criteria (Quality, Value and Packaging) rather than just spirit making technique or overall taste.
In order to receive a Silver medal at the USA Spirits Ratings competition, a spirit needs to score at least 80 points.
"We're really excited that both our Ghost Whiskey and Cape Henry Vodka scored so highly on the various factors that determine the drinkability of a spirit," said Royall Ferguson of Deep Creek Distilling. "We really put a lot of emphasis on creating spirits with broad consumer appeal, and one that spirit drinkers would enjoy for a variety of different occasions. These awards are really a validation of our spirit making expertise."
Sid Patel, CEO and Founder of Beverage Trade Network, emphasized on the importance of finding spirits that score highly across all three categories rather than just one, "We
feel that it offers a broad, comprehensive approach to evaluating spirits the same way that consumers and trade buyers do."
The judging panel included spirits industry professionals with commercial buying expertise. It also included professionals from leading retail chains, wholesalers, distributors, specialty retailers and casual and fine dining establishments. The inclusion of so many high-profile judges ensured that spirits that were awarded medals in competition were those with a high degree of commercial appeal.
