Breckenridge Distillery is renowned producers of exquisite whiskeys, for example, their Breckenridge Blend of Straight Bourbon Whiskeys. Guests loved its overall features including the deep honey-amber hue, aromas of under-ripe banana and brown sugar with spicy notes of white pepper and toasted sesame. These are certainly some of the reasons why Breckenridge Distillery were voted in the top 3 whiskey brands.

George Dickel is one of the top 3 whiskey brands voted by guests at the recent festival too. They’re one of the few brands who add more processed distilling – and that’s charcoal mellowing. It’s a process in which their whisky is slowly seeped through vats packed with charcoal.
