2022 North American Whiskey Manhattan Cocktail Competition

After being evaluated by an esteemed panel of Chicago area bartenders and buyers, B6S’s Brothers’ 1910 Sherry Cask Finished Bourbon Whiskey tied for a third place! The Brothers’ 1910 Sherry Cask Finished Whiskey has a golden amber color with an aroma of grilled corn dipped in drawn butter, raspberry cherry vanilla frosting, and dried herbs. Our whiskey was even regarded as a “crowd pleaser” by the whole panel of judges.

In addition, the Beverage Testing Institute awarded B6D with two gold medals for 2022! One for our Brothers’ 1910 Sherry Cask Finished Bourbon Whiskey and one for our Brothers’ 1910 Empire Rye Casked Finished Straight Rye Whiskey. Both earning an astounding 91 points!
