28 Mar Hard Truth Gin Wins ADI Distillery Award
Portland, OR. March 28, 2018 — Hard Truth Distilling Co. is bringing a medal back home to Indiana. The Brown County, Ind. distillery’s gin earned a bronze medal in the American Distilling Institute’s 2018 Judging of Craft Spirits for the certified craft distilled spirit of its kind at the Tuesday evening awards ceremony in Portland, Ore.
ADI is “the premiere USA trade organization for craft distillers,” and each year, small, independently owned makers of spirits and related items from the U.S. and abroad submit entries for the contest that are then tasted blind and evaluated by expert judging panels.
Hard Truth distillers made their first entry to the contest this year and brought home the medal, earning compliments from ADI judges regarding Hard Truth Gin’s mouthfeel and ability to hold its own in a cocktail.
Hard Truth intends to celebrate the ADI award by launching GINdiana®, a campaign featuring information on the the gin, the distillery, and Hard Truth Hills – the Brown County destination venue that will become their new home later this spring.
Founded in 2015, Hard Truth Distilling Co. is the distilling branch of BWQOHT, Inc., the operating company for Big Woods Restaurants, Quaff ON! Brewing Co. and Hard Truth.
The distillery’s regular production spirits include vodka, cinnamon flavored vodka, rum, and it’s award-winning gin. A limited edition, aged agave spirit was released in 2017, and aged bourbon, whiskey and rye will become available over the next several years.
