Belize just 1UP-ed the competition in Orland, Florida, USA, as it took two gold medals at the Wine & Spirits Wholesalers of America (WSWA) 72nd Annual Convention & Exposition that was held last night, Monday, April 13, 2015.
Basil Destefano of Tiburon Rum and Amanda Perdomo of Traveller’s Liqours represented Belize at the convention and took the completion by surprise when Tiburon Rum was awarded with Double Gold Award for Best in Show (Best Dark/Gold Rum, Best Rum and Best Aged White Spirit In Show) and One Barrel Rum taking the Gold Award.
“Belize has never done this at the biggest show in the United States,” commented Basil Destefano of Tiburon Rum. “We are getting attention now and so is Belize; it is a very big day for Belize!”
The WSWA opened with a record attendance, industry and supplier participation and it is great to hear that Belize did a great job. Congratulations to Tiburon Rum and Traveller’s Liquors for proudly representing Belize!!
