July 23, 2012 (St. Louis, MO) Cardinal Sin Vodka, a local artisan spirit, received Gold Medals this past week at two international spirits competitions held in California. Both the MicroLiquor and SIP Competitions awarded Cardinal Sin Vodka a Gold Medal for taste.
The St. Louis Distillery, a local micro distillery, introduced Cardinal Sin Vodka to the St. Louis market in April this year. The distillery utilizes an artisan, micro-batch approach to distilling. This hands-on approach is the key to separating the desirable alcohols, known as the “hearts”, from the undesirable “heads” and “tails”. The St. Louis Distillery uses a unique still with an advanced structured packed column rectification technology which ensures that Cardinal Sin Vodka is rectified thousands of times versus standard stills with individual rectification plates. This is why Cardinal Sin Vodka can obtain such an outstanding flavor and character in a single rectification run!
The experts agree. Adam England, spirits manager at Lukas Liquor
, states “Cardinal Sin Vodka is the best vodka he has ever come across”. Joel Clark, award winning mixologist at Sanctuaria
, calls Cardinal Sin “the best vodka around”. Now, two
international competitions chime in. Cardinal Sin Vodka is a Gold Medal winner!
