Watershed continues to win with gin

Written by on September 24, 2019 in Liquor - No comments

Bourbon Barrel Gin from Watershed Distillery has recently been awarded a double gold medal from the New York World Wine and Spirits Competition, earning the spirit “Best in Class” in the flavored gin category for 2019.

“Gin is the lifeblood of our business,” stated Greg Lehman, founder and CEO of Watershed Distillery. “We’ve worked hard to ensure we are bringing interesting and high-quality American style gins to market and to ensure our gins are approachable and enjoyable. We are honored to be recognized for the work we are doing in this category and take great pride in this recent gin accolade.”

The double gold medal for Bourbon Barrel Gin comes on the heels of Watershed Distillery winning a double gold medal for their Guild Gin this spring at the 2019 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, and earning the title of “Ohio’s gin distillery of the year” from the 2019 New York International Spirits Competition in May.

Watershed currently produces three gins — their citrus-forward flagship Four Peel Gin, the recently medaled Bourbon Barrel Gin (which is barrel-aged Four Peel Gin), and the chamomile flavored Guild Gin which was developed in partnership with The Guild House.
