Belfour Spirits Celebrates Another Gold Medal, Taking High Honors at San Francisco World Spirits Competition Bourbon Whiskey Finished with Texas Pecan Wood leaves an impact in international competition

DALLAS, TX [April 7, 2022] – Competing against numerous prestigious brands of spirits, Belfour Spirits’ 92 proof Bourbon Whiskey Finished with Texas Pecan Wood earned a gold finish at the 2022 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

Receiving high marks from a panel of restaurateurs, mixologists, and food critics, this Belfour bourbon’s complexities, richness, and unmistakable quality made it a crystal clear choice for a coveted gold award despite a demanding and rigorous judging process.

This whiskey is unique and yet nostalgic. Aged in American white oak barrels with Texas pecan staves, this golden-honey and amber liquor takes on a nutty and brown sugar flavor. With notes of butterscotch and crème brûlée, this bourbon tops it all off with a smokey vanilla finish.

Ed Belfour, founder of Belfour Spirits, noted that when it comes to stand-out whiskeys, “you’ve got to trust mellow and traditional flavors. We mixed it up by adding the pecan wood, but the classic nose of roasted nuts combined with a light spice undertone means that it’s both memorable and something that feels like home, at the same time.”
