Tarnished Truth takes home NINE awards from American Distilling Institute

August 25, 2021

Tarnished Truth Distilling Company is proud to announce that we won BIG in the American Distilling Institute’s 2021 Judging of Craft Spirits. Our hand-crafted bourbon, vodka, whiskey, and gin took home a total of nine awards—and our brand extension, Coastal Cocktails, was recognized as well.

Tarnished Truth received Certified Craft Blended Spirits awards for our Old Cavalier Bourbon Cream (Gold Medal), 3-Year High Rye Bourbon (Silver), Fourth Handle Coastal American Gin (Silver), and Old Cavalier Bourbon (Silver). Our 3-Year High Rye Bourbon also won Bronze for Excellence in Packaging!

Coastal Cocktails took home Gold for the Vodka Cranberry & Orange Crush flavors, and Bronze for the Vodka Grapefruit & Whiskey Lemonade. These canned cocktails are sold all over Virginia and are expanding quickly into Maryland and the surrounding states. Have you tried all four yet?

Tarnished Truth distills our spirits under the watchful eye of the Atlantic, and is located inside the Historic Cavalier Hotel in Virginia Beach. Coastal Cocktails was born when we poured some of our (award-winning) spirits into real, fresh, fruit juice for the perfect cocktail in a can. No bartender required!

Tarnished Truth spirits and Coastal Cocktails in a can are available right here on our website, as well as at most local ABC & grocery stores. We’re continuing to expand, bringing our fresh flavors to new audiences.

We’re making a name for ourselves here in the Old Dominion state, thanks to our unique location & meticulous distilling process. Now that our spirits are certified award-winners (again), we’re looking forward to a future as bright as the sun shining over the Atlantic.

Visit anytime to try our range of spirits and canned cocktails, tour our distillery, enjoy a tasting, shop our merch, or attend our annual Virginia Bourbon Invitational. We hope to see you soon!
