Rivulet® Artisan Pecan Liqueur Wins Double Gold Medal, International Women’s Spirits Competition
Santa Rosa, California – May 23, 2022 – Rivulet Artisan Pecan Liqueur is pleased to announce it has been awarded a Double Gold Medal 96 Points and Best of Show at the 2022 International Women’s Wine & Spirits Competition held in Santa Rosa, California. This is the only competition in the United States to feature exclusively all female judges. While the competition is open to makers and brand owners of all genders, its focus is on identifying specific wines and spirits that women consumers will enjoy and ultimately purchase.
Now in its fifteenth year, this was the first year that the competition added spirits to its prestigious lineup. The competition brings together esteemed judging panels made up exclusively of professional women winemakers, distillers, sommeliers, retail buyers, beverage industry educators and journalists. The judges evaluate and recognize not only the best wines and spirits submitted, but also those they feel appeal most to women buyers and consumers.
“We are pleased that the world’s top female consumer judges have awarded Rivulet a prestigious Double Gold Medal and 96 points at this year’s competition,” 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 are continuing to make Rivulet part of their luxury spirits repertoire” he said.
“Every year, I’m impressed with the dedication our judges bring to their task,” says Debra Del Fiorentino, founder of Wine Competitions Management & Production, which organizes and hosts the competition. “Most [of them] are long-time, experienced judges, but there’s something different about the atmosphere at this competition. I don’t know that I would call it ‘female energy,’ but there’s definitely much more collaboration and discussion before choosing winners.”
