The 2021 Artisan Flave Awards competition recently concluded with over 300 products from 10 different countries on 5 continents vying for honors in a variety of categories.
Tenino’s own Wild Heart Sipping Vinegar, the sister company of Sandstone Distillery, submitted their Blueberry Thyme Sipping
Vinegar for consideration in the vinegar category, garnering a Silver Medal for the long-time customer favorite. “This was quite an honor for our little start-up,” says co-owner Jenni Bourdon of the award. “We know our customers love this varietal given that they’ve purchased over 1,000 bottles just this year alone, so the Artisan Flave Award is a very gratifying affirmation for all of us at Wild Heart.”
According to The International Flavor Awards, LLC who host the event, the Artisan Flave Awards competition is “a premiere culinary contest providing small to medium sized businesses an opportunity to showcase their original products and be recognized for their talents by competing against similarly-sized businesses in a variety of categories.” Employing a blind-judging process with food professionals including restaurateurs, purveyors, manufacturers and members of the food-centric community, the contest provides an impartial and knowledgeable judging of the food and beverage products submitted.
“We are very pleased to have had one of our customers’ favorite products recognized at this level,” says Bourdon, “and are also excited about what the future holds for us.”
