FREDERICKSBURG, VIRGINIA (Aug. 24, 2021) –Just a month after its release, A. Smith Bowman Cask Strength Bourbon was awarded a Master medal, the highest granted, at the 2021 American Whiskey Masters. The newest addition to the Distillery’s lineup, each barrel included in A. Smith Bowman Cask Strength is hand-selected by Master Distiller Brian Prewitt and aged a minimum of 10 years. The initial release of this uncut, non chill-filtered bourbon came in at 141.1 proof and there are plans to release more each year.
Three other A. Smith Bowman Distillery bourbons also received Gold medals: Bowman Brothers Small Batch Virginia Straight Bourbon Whiskey, Isaac Bowman Port Finished Straight Bourbon Whiskey, and John J. Bowman Single Barrel Virginia Straight Bourbon Whiskey.
“We are very honored to be recognized at the American Whiskey Masters this year,” said Prewitt. “For our entire lineup of bourbons to be recognized in such a prestigious event really brings a great sense of pride with our small distillery team.”
The American Whiskey Masters is chaired by The Spirits Business and a panel of leading spirits specialists. The record-number of entries were judged by category in a blind tasting held in July. For a full list of this year’s results, visit The American Whiskey Masters 2021 results.
