Tom's Town Wins Best Craft Vodka Distillery 2017 in USA Today’s Readers’ Choice Awards
KANSAS CITY, MO (September 21, 2017) -- USA Today’s annual Readers’ Choice Awards has named Tom’s Town Distilling Co. best craft vodka distillery in the United States.
USA Today partnered with a panel of American spirits experts who nominated Tom’s Town and 19 other distilleries for the award. For the past four weeks, USA Today readers have voted for their favorites. Tom’s Town won the prestigious honor last Friday.
“We’re over the moon about this award,” said David Epstein, Tom’s Town owner and co-founder. “Since we opened last year, we’ve focused on producing premium, unique, and delicious craft spirits. We’re gratified to be named the country’s best vodka distillery after only two years in business. While the spirits industry has recognized all three of our spirits, our vodka earned three gold medals last year, more than any other American vodka. The people are thirsty, and they have spoken.”
Tom’s Town distills StrongArm Vodka using a 16-plate vodka column with wheat and locally-grown Missouri rye. Its three gold medals include awards from the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, the American Craft Spirits Association and the Fifty Best. It also won a silver medal from the American Distilling Institute.
