Desert Diamond Distillery Awarded Gold Medal For Their Barrel Reserve Rum
Desert Diamond Distillery has been awarded a Gold Medal in the San Francisco World Spirit Awards for their Barrel Reserve Rum, which was just bottled in February of this year. The new Barrel Reserve, out of D3's very first barrel, is a harbinger of incredible things to come...garnering a Gold in such a prestigious event as the San Francisco World Spirit Awards is setting the bar high for this family owned and operated small micro-distillery. When you consider that every Spirit that D3 has on the market has won an award, it is easier to come to terms with the fact that D3 rum, a rum made right here in the United States of American, in Arizona, in the Mohave Desert, is something that is going toe to toe with rum from the Caribbean islands.
Our "Roll out the Barrel" event at the end of January was well attended with 51 friends of the Distillery attending, and they were the first to taste and toast our newest addition, the Barrel Reserve rum. Little did they know (mabye they guessed?) that less than 3 months later, we would be reporting that this very special rum, out of our very first barrel, has been judged a Gold Medal winner, one of only four Golds this year from the SFWS awards. We plan to have another "Roll out the Barrel" event in about four months to celebrate the "birth" of our next barrel. Please visit us on facebook or the web to be on our email list.
