SoCal Silver wins the Gold!

COSTA MESA, CA., April 5, 2019 — SoCal Silver Rum, a leading cocktail rum for Southern California lifestyle enthusiasts, made headlines when it was awarded a Gold Medal in the 2019 San Francisco World Spirits Competition (SFWSC).  Founded in 2000, this competition is considered the most influential spirits contest in the world and recognizes exceptional products in the spirits category.  Per the SFWSC, a Gold Medal is awarded to products that are “near the pinnacle of achievement in their particular category,” and also “set the standard for all others of their type.”

This prestigious award is affirmation of the years spent perfecting the SoCal recipe.  Management said in a statement, “We would have been honored to earn a bronze; our minds were blown when we heard it won a gold. We think it’s the best cocktail rum on the planet, but hearing that a distinguished panel of experts, like SFWSC, gave it high praise as well, now that is epic!”

About SoCal Silver Rum:

SoCal Silver Rum is handcrafted in sunny Southern California. It all started in a Costa Mesa garage with two dudes tired of celebrating with gnarly tasting rum. So, they set out on a quest to make the perfect cocktail rum. Four years later, they nailed it and SoCal was born. Its epic sunny taste comes from the finest ingredients with no added flavorings.
