LEAF Vodka, made from Rocky Mountain Mineral Water, has achieved one of the highest rankings at San Diego International Spirits Competition with a GOLD Award. A highly qualified panel of spirits judges evaluated the entries using a proprietary scoring system that evaluated each spirit on a number of factors, including appearance, aroma, taste, and finish.
According to the competition website: "The 2014 San Diego International Spirits Competition was a tough spirits competition and absolutely no automatic awards were given."
The San Diego International Spirits Competition was held in conjunction with the San Diego Spirits Festival, which just concluded its highly successful sixth year. The event brings together people from throughout the country and overseas to participate in a two-day weekend festival where they can experience dozens of new and diverse brands.
"We are truly appreciative of this prestigious award," noted Julius Criscione, national sales and marketing director for Megapolis USA, the American subsidiary for Global Spirits, owners of LEAF Vodka.
"It reinforces our core belief that sourcing the best water makes all the difference. This distinction and our brand attributes have allowed us to gain and continually expand our distribution as more consumers discover the outstanding taste and quality of LEAF Vodka."
These accolades join several notable awards in recent months from the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, TheFiftyBest.com, the 2014 SIP International Consumer Tasting Awards, and the 2014 Ultimate Spirits Challenge.
