The 2015 New York International Spirits Competition has honored AstraLuna Brands Distillery of Medfield, MA with the Bronze Award for its Cape Cod Great White Rum. The smooth white rum rolled out in April 2015 and made a big splash with customers on the Cape and Islands and the greater Boston area form Provincetown to Marblehead.
In the same competition, the distillery’s first ever, AstraLuna was also named “Massachusetts Rum Distillery of the Year.”
AstraLuna is a craft distillery making ultra-premium spirits. Their lineup currently includes Cape Cod Great White Rum, Crook Jaw’s Cape Cod Amber Rum, Cape Cod Vodka (made with Harwich potatoes), and gluten-free O’Brien’s Vodka.
Now in it’s 6th year, the New York International Spirits Competition (“NYISC”) was held on October 18th to taste, evaluate, and judge almost 500 of the world’s best-distilled spirits. Over 35 countries submitted their brands to be critiqued by a hand-selected panel of A-List and key TRADE ONLY judges – buyers, retail storeowners, restaurant/bar proprietors, distributors, and importers.
“Cape Cod Great White Rum is a labor of love,” says owner/distiller Andrew McCabe. “We are very proud to have created such a smooth and drinkable spirit. We look forward to introducing more new and innovative products in the future.”
By utilizing only the finest ingredients and employing sound distilling practices, AstraLuna Brands Distillery is able to create premium quality spirits that customers love.
AstraLuna Brands is owned by Andrew McCabe of Dover, Joe Sullivan of Dover and Harwichport, Jonathan Fryer of Dover and Sandwich, MA and Vinnie O’Brien of Scituate. Learn more about AstraLuna Brands at astraluna.com
