Artisan Distillers Canada hosted the competition for a fourth year, celebrating distilleries from all across Canada.
A panel of judges who exemplify knowledge and vast experience with spirits and a strong influence in the industry conducted a blind tasting evaluating spirits on nose, palate, finish and quality.
Crosscut Distillery’s Triple Grain Vodka placed Gold. The local distillery’s Gin Trial #26 and Barrel Aged Gin also won Silver medals, and their Barrelled Mocha Liqueur won a Bronze.
With the help and support of the community, Crosscut Distillery has been able to source ingredients from local farmers and foragers to build a one-of-a-kind following.
Crosscut Distillery is inspired by the old-world craftsmanship of small batch pot distilling, as well as Northern Ontario’s founding industries: forestry and mining.
"Northerners know that around here, we do things differently," Crosscut said in a news release.
"Each bottle fuses local and unexpected ingredients with quality grains, cut and blended to create unique flavours, inspiring grain-to-glass enthusiasts with every sip."– Sudbury.com
