The Baltimore Whiskey Company waited three years to release its aged rye whiskey. Last month, the wait paid off in a major way.
The distillery, which is in the process of moving to Medfield's Union Collective from Remington, won the San Francisco World Spirits Competition's Double Gold, the highest honor from the national competition, for its Epoch Straight Rye Whiskey.
Founded in 2000, the SFWSC took place April 13-15 in San Francisco, where nearly 2,500 entries were judged by 47 expert judges from more than 65 countries, according to a spokeswoman for the competition. The Baltimore Whiskey Company was the only Maryland distillery to win Double Gold.
