“It’s all great what your friends and family think about your spirits, but getting impartial and unbiased feedback from a panel of diverse spirit’s professionals is priceless. We’ve been extremely fortunate to win some medals for our spirits in the competitions over the years and ACSA’s judging was no exception. The medals are our strongest marketing force aside from the taste of the spirits themselves! Speaking personally, membership in the ACSA has been money well spent. Not only does ACSA offer extraordinary education and access to a wealth of knowledge from a strong membership base, but the feedback from the ACSA Judging notes was immeasurably helpful. Plus, it affirmed thoughts from family and friends. We will continue to be proud members of the American Craft Spirits Association for years to come – it’s worth it!”
