)-- Local Choice Spirits’s Boone’s Bourbon was awarded a "Double Gold" at the 2020 New York International Spirits Competition (NYISC), ranking in the top 6 bourbons worldwide. Following the announcement, Forbes placed Boone’s Bourbon center stage with the “World’s Best Bourbons” and accoladed the South Carolina Bourbon as a geographic outlier, standing out amongst its well known Kentucky Bourbon competitors. "Double Golds" were awarded to just 42 out of more than 1200 NYISC entries from around the world. Local Choice Spirits took home several awards, including Producer of The Year.
The 11th annual NYISC took place virtually this year. Brought home by Boone’s Bourbon, the "Double Gold" is a special honor given to spirits that are considered the finest in the world by all the judges on the panel. NYISC sets itself apart from other competitions as it consists of a trade only judging panel. In other words, the judges are professionals in the hospitality and beverage industry that make a living out of knowing what consumers want. As well as being awarded South Carolina Producer of the Year, Local Choice Spirits took home a "Silver" for its Striped Pig Watermelon Vodka and ‘Bronze’ for its Doppio Espresso Vodka and its Myrtle Beach Banana Nut Rum.
