Belfour Spirits Caps Inaugural Year with Gold in Las Vegas Global Wine & Spirits Awards
Belfour Pecan Wood-Finished Bourbon Takes Home Gold in American Whiskey Category
DALLAS – Belfour Spirits is thrilled to announce that it closed 2020 strong with a gold medal for its Belfour Bourbon Whiskey Finished With Texas Pecan Wood at the Las Vegas Global Wine & Spirits Awards.
According to the Las Vegas Global Wine & Spirits Awards press release, the 2020 winners were selected from more than 750 entries from around the world.
Belfour Spirits’ Bourbon Whiskey Finished With Texas Pecan Wood is beautifully aged in American white oak barrels, and then spends extra time aging with added staves of Texas pecan wood, resulting in a spirit with subtle notes of brown sugar, and heavy notes of smoky roasted pecan.
“What a year,” says Ed Belfour, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Belfour Spirits. “While we would not have chosen the conditions that 2020 presented, industry experts and our fans continue to support our brand. We are excited for what’s ahead in 2021 for our company, including significant market expansion in the United States and hopefully Canada, too.”
In its first full 12 months of business, Belfour Spirits earned 14 industry awards across its portfolio of three spirits: Belfour Pecan-Finished Bourbon (92 proof), Belfour Rye Whiskey (94 proof) and Belfour Limited Edition Straight Rye Whiskey (100 proof).
Belfour Spirits currently distributes in eight states with plans to expand into a significant number of markets in spring/summer 2021.
