Versailles, KY (May 3, 2021) – Woodford Reserve Batch Proof has won the top honor — Double Gold — from the prestigious San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
Double Gold is awarded to the entries that receive a Gold medal rating by all members of the judging panel; these are among the finest products in the world.
The limited-edition, high-proof expression is part of the annual Master’s Collection series, which celebrates Master Distiller Chris Morris and Assistant Master Distiller Elizabeth McCall and their commitment to craftsmanship.
“We are truly honored to receive this accolade from such an esteemed group of judges,” Morris said.
Released March 2021, Batch Proof 128.3, takes Woodford Reserve’s trademark flavor range of sweet vanilla and toasted oak to a whole new level offering consumers the privilege of tasting Woodford Reserve in its purest form (and not the standard 90.4 for which Woodford is known).
“The depth of flavor found in Woodford Reserve Batch Proof is remarkable. It is humbling to have others recognize the exceptional quality of this expression,” McCall said.
Batch Proof is made using Woodford Reserve’s proprietary process – blending barrels into a batch and then bottling the whiskey at its actual proof, straight from the barrel. Batch Proof is crafted using the same grain bill and process as Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Bourbon.
This limited-edition collection is available in select U.S. and global markets and has a suggested retail price of $129.99 for a 750ml bottle.
