KyMar Farm Distillery has added another medal to its portfolio of spirits. Their malt whiskey, bottled for the first time in November of 2016, was awarded a gold medal in the 2017 Denver International Spirit Competition.
The double-blind competition took place on March 4-5, 2017 at the Omni Interlocken Resort in Broomfield, Colorado.
This competition is open to both craft producers and major brands in the industry.
"We could not be more excited to receive this recognition for our Malt Whiskey," said Ken Wortz, the founder and distiller.
"It takes great grain, great water, great barrels (Adirondack Barrel Cooperage) and patience to make a great whiskey. All of which Central New York offers KyMar in abundance."
KyMar Farm Distillery is a craft wine and spirits producer located in Charlotteville.
They have been distilling and producing since 2011.
KyMar products can be found in New York and Massachusetts.
The Distillery is open for tasting and tours from May through December.
