5/6/2016 - A. Smith Bowman wins gold medal

John J. Bowman Bourbon was awarded a gold medal at the fifth annual Denver International Spirits Competition in Broomfield, Colo., according to a press release from the Spotsylvania-based A. Smith Bowman distillery.

A panel of 20 spirits experts rated entries through a double-blind process.

Two limited edition Abraham Bowman whiskeys—Abraham Bowman Vanilla Bean Infused Whiskey and Abraham Bowman Port Finished Bourbon—were each awarded Silver Medals.


“Whether we’re making our single barrel, or experimenting to create new limited editions, we always strive to create the very best product we can,” master distiller Brian Prewitt said. “It’s great to see our whiskeys recognized so highly in this competition.”
