Lonerider Spirits was recently awarded two gold medals and one silver medal for their liqueur, a canned ready-to-drink cocktail and their bourbon whiskey from the 2020 USA Spirits Ratings Competition.  

For a distillery to win a USA Spirits Ratings award their spirit needed to score high in all three areas of judging criteria (which are out of 100 points possible): Quality, Value, and Packaging. A separate weighted score will be given for each of the three parts of the judging process (Quality gets twice the weight). The USA Spirits Ratings was assessed and judged by a leading panel of top-level spirits buyers with current direct commercial buying responsibility.

“We are pleased to see our spirits continue to perform well with spirits buyers and the public,” says Derek Tenbusch, VP of Marketing for Lonerider Spirits. “Our fans have always supported us in North Carolina and we hope to gain even more fans in other states in 2021!”

Lonerider Spirits also won multiple medals in 2020 from ADI (American Distilling Institute), SFWSC (San Francisco World Spirits Competition), ACSA (American Craft Spirits Association), Denver International Spirits Competition, U.S. Whiskey Open, SIP Awards and was named “NC Whiskey Distillery of the Year” by the New York International Spirits Competition.
