Under the imprimatur of the American Distilling Institute, three panels of judges will evaluate 244 spirits from nearly 100 distilleries over the course of two days. That breaks out as:
- 45 rums
- 60 brandies
- 139 whiskeys
|No, no, no. It will be nothing like this.|
Even if I am with the whiskey group, I'll be getting into the brandies as, ahem, "research" for my upcoming Tales of the Cocktail session on American non-grape brandies with Paul Clark and Bobby Heugel.
Results of the ADI judging will be announced at the annual ADI conference this coming April 1-4 in Louisville.
