Wolfhead Distillery hits one-year anniversary with numerous awards



By RTT Staff


Wolfhead Distillery is approaching its one-year anniversary and has more than just a first birthday to celebrate.

The local craft distillery came home from a recent competition in San Francisco, California with several awards.

“We entered into our first ever Spirits competition and chose the San Francisco World spirits competition because it is internationally recognized,” explained Stephanie Saad, Wolfhead’s marketing and events co-ordinator. “We entered all six of our products into each of their corresponding categories.”

According to Saad, the competition is done by blind tasting, so the judges do not know the company or country the product is from.

There were over 2,100 entrants this year, she added.

In all, products from Wolfhead distillery captured six medals, including two silver medals and four bronze medals.

Their grapefruit vodka won a silver medal, as did the local distillery’s coffee whisky liqueur.

The premium whisky won a bronze medal with the premium vodka also winning bronze. The other two bronze medals were for Wolfhead’s banana caramel vodka and the apple caramel whisky.

Wolfhead Distillery, located at 7781 Howard Ave., will be hosting a one-year open house celebration May 27 from 11 a.m.-8 p.m. There will be live music, door prizes and food and drink specials with a portion of the day’s proceeds going to benefit a family in need.
