Eau Claire Distillery proudly celebrates multiple whisky wins in 2022

Turner Valley, Alberta (April 26, 2022) – Alberta’s original craft distillery, Eau Claire Distillery (Eau Claire), is proud to announce three exciting wins from the 2022 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. The distillery has been awarded Double Gold for Rupert’s Exceptional Canadian Whisky, Gold for Batch 005 Single Malt Whisky and Bronze for Cask 47 Single Cask Single Malt Whisky.

Considered to be the most influential spirits competition in the world, the San Francisco World Spirits Competition (SFWSC) received over 4,000 entries in 2022. The competition is the second oldest in the world and products are judge by over 30 established spirits industry experts.

“Any award from the San Francisco World Spirits Competition is a cause for celebration,” says David Farran, Founder, Eau Claire Distillery. “But to receive such an esteemed award as Double Gold for our Rupert’s Exceptional Canadian Whisky is a testament to our dedicated to quality, and producing exceptional whiskies here in Alberta.”

These wins come on the heels of another exciting win from the 2022 World Whiskies Awards earlier this year, when the distillery was awarded Category Winner for Cask 10 Single Cask Single Malt Whisky, Silver for Rupert’s Exceptional Canadian Whisky and Bronze for Batch 004 Single Malt Whisky.

Eau Claire Distillery’s Whisky program has also won Double Gold at the 2021 SIP Awards, Gold – Excellence in Terroir at the 2021 Canadian Artisan Spirit Competition, Gold at the Alberta Craft Distillers Awards and Silver at the Canadian Whisky Awards.

“Making great whisky is a labour of love,” says Eau Claire Distillery’s Master Distiller, Caitlin Quinn. “It’s incredible to see our whiskies recognized on the world stage, from one of the most renowned spirits competitions in the world.”

Rupert’s Whisky is the distillery’s first year-round Alberta whisky offering. Rupert’s Whisky is non-chill filtered, has no artificial caramel colouring, and uses some of Eau Claire’s best whisky barrels. The resulting flavour, colour and taste is a rich balance of flavours that form an approachable yet distinctive choice that is perfect for mixing or enjoying on its own, neat or over ice. Rupert’s Whisky has the same flavour and style that you will find in every bottle of Eau Claire Distillery’s award-winning Single Malt Whisky batches.

At 40% alc./vol., Rupert’s Whisky is sold in 750ml glass bottles. Find Rupert’s Whisky at the Eau Claire Distillery online store, Calgary Farmers’ Market and Turner Valley locations.
