Rivulet® Artisan Pecan Liqueur Scores Double Gold at Spirits International Prestige (SIP) Awards

Irvine, California – May 12, 2022 – Rivulet Artisan Pecan Liqueur is pleased to announce it has been awarded a Double Gold Medal at the 14th Annual Spirits International Prestige (SIP) Awards held in Irvine, California.

This year’s competition consisted of a record 1271 brands entered, judged by a panel of 268 consumer judges. This “SIP” panel of 268 judges is not affiliated with any marketer, industry wholesaler or distributor, assuring that results are unbiased and not influenced by industry insiders. Each spirit is presented undiluted and evaluated based on aroma, taste, and finish in a blind tasting. Medals awarded
are across all spirit categories, and they are organized by bronze, silver, gold, double gold, and the coveted platinum medal. Not all brands entered even qualify for a medal. “Consumers are the ultimate decision makers, and their honest opinions are something that you just can’t buy,” says SIP Awards executive producer Paul Hashemi. “ When you enter this competition, your spirit will be judged by a panel of consumers, not by industry insiders.”

“We are pleased that the world’s top consumer judges have awarded Rivulet the prestigious Double Gold Medal at this year’s show,” said James B. Marshall, the managing director of C88 Holdings, LLC, the producer of Rivulet Artisan Pecan Liqueur. “We were thrilled that this broad cross section of consumer judges recognize our liqueur for its outstanding quality credentials. We are obviously quite proud of our quality story, and consumers throughout America and around the world will be able to make Rivulet part of their luxury spirits repertoire” he said.

About the Judges
The 268 judges are a panel of upscale and knowledgeable consumers, a diverse group from throughout the world. The judging panel is roughly 12 times larger than most other competitions, assuring a wide statistical cross section mirroring the general marketplace. These judges are familiar with wines and spirits, although none is from the industry, so they are in a unique position to evaluate products according to objective quality standards. This is a wonderful opportunity for established and also new brands to be judged in a pure blind taste test by real world consumers.

About the Competition
The SIP Awards have become an increasingly popular and important international spirits competition. In addition to boosting brand recognition, winners enjoy the power of consumer choice credibility. Although hundreds of brands enter the competition, only brands with the highest scores receive honors. Nearly 20% of the brands entered did not qualify for any type of medal. Rising above the nearly 1300 entrants, the winners in each category have proven themselves superior to the competition, worthy of high honors from an honest and impartial consumer base. Brands enjoy extended coverage and gain additional exposure to new demographics annually, due in part to SIP Awards changing venues from year to year.
