Adirondack Distilling Co. is creating quite the stir in the cocktail world. In just the last month, Central New York’s premier craft distillery received five awards in four different competitions nationwide for its handcrafted and gluten-free Adirondack Vodka.

DoubleGoldNYS fair[1]Adirondack Vodka won the highest possible awards in two separate competitions – a double gold medal from the American Wine & Spirits Society at the New York State Fair and a platinum medal at the SIP (Spirits International Prestige) International Spirits Competition – beating out competition from Poland, Italy, Finland, Sweden, Russia and other international distilleries.  Additionally, ADK Vodka won a bronze medal from the exclusive and grueling Washington Cup Spirits Competition.

It’s not just the Vodka getting awards. Following the accolades received for outstanding product, Adirondack Distilling received a fold medal at the International Spirits Awards packaging design competition in San Francisco for its innovative bottle design and a silver medal for packaging from the International Spirits Competition.

ADK Vodka has received so much positive feedback that it has been picked up by distributors in upstate New York, New York City, Connecticut and California. In less than a year since opening its doors, Adirondack Vodka has become a national brand.

Following on the success of its ADK Vodka, Adirondack Distilling Company is releasing its newest offering, ADK Gin. The special first batch bottles, signed by the founders, were released last week and you can expect to find ADK Gin in local liquor stores this Friday.

If the success of ADK Vodka is any indication, then you can be assured that the gin will be another winner.
