Yolo Rum Awarded Two Gold Medals at 2019 SIP Awards
2019 SIP Awards recognize Yolo Gold and Silver each with Gold Medals
The winners of the 2019 SIP awards were recently announced, and we are happy to report that both Yolo Rum Gold and Yolo Rum Silver were awarded with Gold medals in their respective categories. The Gold medal celebrates spirits that demonstrated a noteworthy performance in a double blind tasting with a diverse consumer panel. With scores in the upper division, Gold medal spirits are strongly recommended. Yolo Rum Gold received a Gold medal in the Extra-Aged Rum (5 years and older) category, while Yolo Rum Silver received a Gold medal for the White Rum category.
The Spirits International Prestige (SIP) Awards is the only international spirits competition judged by consumers based on their honest and unbiased feedback through a blind tasting. This years SIP Awards judging panel was comprised of 146 consumer judges. The SIP Awards 146 judges are selected to ensure demographic diversity and screened for any potential spirit brand affiliation. A proprietary algorithm is used to mitigate any palate inconsistencies. The results are judged specifically by industry outsiders. As the only blind tasting competition of its kind, the SIP Awards offers a fair platform for top brands to showcase their products to their most discerning audience. The 2019 competition saw 977 spirits and mixers entered in 93 different categories.
This most recent successful outcome for Yolo Rum in International Competition brings the medal count to 25, which prompted CFO John Granville to ponder out loud that the only limitation to the amount of awards that we could win is only throttled by the amount of competitions that we enter. Well stated sir! In even the stiffest of competition, the cream rises to the top, and the view is nice from up here! Won’t you join us?! Cheers! Yolo!!!
