Alibi American Whiskey Awarded Beverage Testing Institute's Gold Medal

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Mar 5, 2014) - Alibi American Whiskey has received the Gold Medal award from the Beverage Testing Institute and earned an "exceptional" rating of 91 out of a possible 100 points. Alibi American Whiskey, which retails for $23.99 per 750ml bottle, was praised as "very fun, flavorful and a sure bet for cocktails."

The Institute also described Alibi as having "aromas of buttery cashew brittle and dried fruit pastry with a silky, fruity-yet-dry medium-to-full body and a white chocolate toffee, mint, and pepper spice accented finish." The Beverage Testing Institute's International Review of Spirits is widely regarded as the most prestigious annual spirits competition in the United States.

A counterpoint to current mainstream market trends, Alibi has set out to demystify the whiskey category by offering a more accessible product as a return to the true American brown-spirit drinking tradition, free of pretension. Alibi is a smooth, 90 proof corn-based blended whiskey that contains elements of rye and malted barley aged in first-fill American oak casks. 

Anthony Dias Blue, the Editor-In-Chief of The Tasting Panel, also recently awarded Alibi with an exception rating of 91 points out of 100 in its January 2014 issue. The publication described the spirit as "smooth, ripe and lush with notes of black teas and vanilla; mellow and rich with spice wood and generous style; long and balanced."
