MENLO PARK, Calif. - April 21, 2020 - PRLog -- Bespoken Spirits, a Silicon Valley beverage tech company that uses proprietary technology to accelerate the maturation and tailor the color, aroma, and taste of premium spirits, walked away with ten new awards at ADI's 2020 Judging of Craft Spirits, including "Best of Category – Certified Craft Blended Spirit – Whiskey." These latest awards are particularly noteworthy because, unlike traditionally aged spirits, the company has once again validated its use of science to accelerate the aging process of white or pre-aged spirits. Bespoken Spirits' innovative technology also provides distillers with the unique ability to rapidly refine a spirits' characteristics through customized "recipes" by adjusting wood, temperature, char levels, etc.

ADI Judging is the oldest and the largest competition dedicated to craft spirits with nearly 1,000 entries from all over the world. Judging was done by a group of 50 experts drawn from the spirits industry; all entries were tasted and evaluated blind.

Bespoken Spirits was awarded "Best of Category – Certified Craft Blended Spirit – Whiskey." The best of category designation is awarded to one spirit in an individual spirit category that earned at least a silver medal, was the highest ranked medal for the category, and was judged to be the best example of the category from all spirits entered in that category.

"With expert judges sampling some of the best spirits in the world, we are thrilled that our original recipe whiskey was awarded 'Best in Category' at this year's ADI Judging of Craft Spirits," said Martin Janousek, co-founder of Bespoken Spirits. "This is further proof that a spirits' color, aroma, and most importantly taste, can be designed and precisely controlled through science, resulting in premium spirits that can be adapted to a wide range of palates, from commercial appeal to highly discerning aficionados."

To date, Bespoken Spirits has collected an impressive bevy of awards for its spirits since their introduction just seven months ago. These include recognition from the 2019 New York World Wine and Spirits Competition; 2019 MicroLiquor Spirit Awards; 2019 International Review of Spirits Tastings; 2020 San Francisco World Spirits Competition; and, 2020 ADI Judging of Craft Spirits.

The number of companies with shortcuts to the traditional whiskey aging process is something one sees slow increasing as entrepreneurs look to find ways to make quality spirit in a fraction of the time. Results on what these start ups produced can be decidedly mixed, but for one Silicon Valley based outfit known as Bespoken Spirits, some recent awards at spirits competitions showcase the fact perhaps indeed there is room for all to play on the whiskey field.

Bespoken said recently its whiskey is created using “proprietary technology to accelerate the maturation and tailor the color, aroma and taste.” Little is revealed on their website around how this works exactly, expect to note that they instill “the barrel in the spirit.” What’s know as their Bespoken Spirits Whiskey Bourbon Mash was effectively aged for less than one week, but this was enough for it to win “a gold medal in a blind taste test at the New York World Wine and Spirits Competition 2019, competing against whiskeys aged between four and 10 years. This competition is one of the most respected judging events in the eastern U.S.A. and its judges are among the wine and spirits industry’s most trusted authorities.

“Bespoken Spirits Whiskey was also awarded a gold medal at the MicroLiquor Spirit Awards 2019, one of the preeminent spirit competitions focused on global craft and emerging brands. With more than 10 years of judging spirits, MicroLiquor Spirit Awards recognized the inaugural release of Bespoken Spirits Bourbon Mash Whiskey with a gold medal for its outstanding taste.”

“Winning multiple awards for the debut of our Bespoken Spirits Whiskey validates our unique approach to solving the time-consuming, costly and complex problem of aging whiskeys,” said Martin Janousek, co-founder of Bespoken Spirits, in a prepared statement. “But the applicability of our technology is far broader than just our branded whiskeys.  We’re bringing the unique ability to accelerate aging and tailor spirits to distillers, rectifiers, and retailers everywhere so they can speed time-to-revenue, reduce financial and environmental waste, and appeal to new demographics and geographies through custom products. This new approach will revolutionize the spirits industry.”
